Introducing Josh Satin
One player whose name is starting to get thrown around in conversations about Mets Minor Leaguers with good statistics is Josh Satin. Satin is mainly a second basemen (but can play the other infield positions as well) for the Savannah Sand Gnats. His stats this year, look promising for the 24-year old, but there are a few other things that also have to be taken into consideration.
The Mets drafted him in the 6th round of the 2008 draft. At that time, and still today, he is considered somewhat of a sleeper pick as his stats suggest:
2009- 87 G, 303 AB, 89 H, 21 2B, 4 HR, 42 RBI, .294 BA
2008- 48 G, 155 AB, 47 H, 12 2B, 2 3B, 5 HR, 15 RBI, .303 BA
And here are his College stats:

The question I have with Satin, is what to make of him given his age and ability, especially when compared to the talent that he is playing with. He is older than most of his competition right now, which should give him an advantage and possibly inflate his stats, so it’s hard to figure out what to make of that inflation and to accurately assess him.
He was hitting well over .300 earlier this season, but he is now starting to drop off a bit. He’s an interesting player because he has the skills, but where he plays puts a damper on them. Some say he could be an organizational player type, which makes sense.
