Holt and Valdespin earn AFL honors

Mets prospects Brad Holt and second baseman Jordany Valdespin were named Tuesday to the Arizona Fall League’s Rising Stars Game. Holt, 24, a right-handed starting pitcher, is 2-1 with a 2.38 ERA in four starts with the Mesa Solar Sox. Valdespin, 22, a second baseman, is batting .355 with 11 RBIs in 15 games for Mesa.

The honor is particularly notable for Holt, a former supplemental first-round pick who, after entering this season as one of the organization’s top pitching prospects, went a dreadful 3-14 with an 8.34 ERA in 24 games split between Double-A Binghamton and Class A St. Lucie.

The Rising Stars Game is scheduled for Saturday, Nov. 6 at 9 p.m. ET.
