Josh Satin Getting Some Reps In The Outfield
Some interesting news from Venezuela where right-handed hitter Josh Satin is playing Winter Ball this offseason. ESPN’s Adam Rubin tweeted the following last night:
Josh Satin is DHing for Caracas in Venezuela on Thursday night. He had made three straight starts in LF, his first pro exposure in outfield.
I wonder if this could be a sign of things to come in Spring Training?
Satin, 26, has played his entire pro career as an infielder, primarily at second base. In 2011, Satin had a phenomenal season batting .323/.411/.453 in 564 plate appearances between Binghamton and Buffalo. He racked up 43 doubles and 12 home runs while driving in 76 runs and scoring 77. His fine minor league season earned Satin a September callup to the Mets.
Satin looked a bit overmatched at times with the Mets during the final weeks of the season, but it was an extremely small sample size. He showed a quick bat and a nice level stroke with gap power. He has been praised for his work ethic and he could grab a utility spot with the Mets with a strong spring.
