Conforto, 22, made his major-league debut earlier this month and had four hits, including two doubles, in 19 at-bats. The No. 10 pick in the 2014 draft, he is ranked as the Mets’ top hitting prospect by MLB.com.
On Monday, Conforto took a 93 mph fastball on the outer third of the plate and hit it deep to right centerfield for his first major-league homer.
The ball left the bat at 112 mph and traveled 435 feet, according to MLB’s Statcast data.
