The players will join Savannah for its playoff run.

Following the Brooklyn Cyclones' elimination from the New York-Penn League playoffs, the Mets promoted Michael Conforto, Amed Rosario, and Jhoan Ureña to Single-A Savannah. All three had been with Brooklyn for the grand majority or all of their 2014 seasons.

Drafted by the Mets in the first round of this year's amateur draft, the 21-year-old Conforto is perhaps the best-known of the trio. Coming into play in the Cyclones' finale, the outfielder had hit .340/.412/.489 in 182 plate appearances over 41 games. If he continues to perform wherever he begins next year, he figures to have a shot at moving quickly through the rest of the Mets' minor league system.

Shortstop Amed Rosario made his professional debut in Kingsport last year. Still just 18 years old, Rosario actually played in seven games for Savannah early in the season, but he hit .290/.338/.382 in 286 plate appearances coming into Brooklyn's last game. Jeff Paternostro saw Rosario plenty this year and wrote him up a few weeks back.

Ureña, who is 20 years old and has played third base, was hitting .297/.354/.430 with five home runs in 311 plate appearances with the Cyclones. Jeff's report on him is well worth your time, but here's a snippet.

Ureña might not have much of a future as a Jordache model, but the Cyclones third baseman is a better athlete than he appears and has advanced bat-to-ball skills for his age.
