Only a couple weeks into the offseason and the New York Mets fan base has something to be incredibly excited about.

Amed Rosario is getting done in Japan.

On Friday night, the franchise shortstop smacked a mighty home run during the Japan All-Star Series. He finished the night 3-for-4 and a triple short of the cycle.

In the first three games of the series, the kid is 4-for-8 with three runs batted in and that solo shot on Friday night.

Rosario, 22, hit nine home runs while driving in 51 runs and hitting .256 in 154 games for the Mets in 2018. The first half of the season paled in comparison to what the kid did later in the season.

His strong second half (alongside double-play partner Jeff McNeil) provided great hope for the middle of the organization’s infield.

The remaining Japan All-Star Series is as follows:

• Saturday: 4:30 a.m. ET
• Sunday: 5 a.m. ET
• Tuesday: 4:30 a.m. ET
• Nov. 14: 5 a.m. ET
• Nov. 15: 4 a.m. ET
