The Mets announced that four players will be called up when rosters expand on Monday. Infielder Josh Satin and right-handed reliever Erik Goeddel received promotions from Triple-A Las Vegas and catcher Juan Centeno and left-handed reliever Dario Alvarez received promotions from Double-A Binghamton.

Satin and Centeno have both seen time with the Mets before. Satin was hitting .289/.386/.439 with nine homers and 49 RBIs in 374 at-bats for Las Vegas, while defensive backstop was batting .238 for Binghamton.

Here’s a couple of capsules from Adam Rubin on Goeddel and Alvarez:

Goeddel, 25, was drafted in the 24th round in 2010 out of UCLA and signed for an over-slot $350,000, a rare move for the Mets at the time. He nearly exclusively started as a professional until being moved to a relief role this season, but did work in relief in college. Goeddel was 3-2 with a 5.37 ERA and had a .296 opponent batting average with Vegas. 

Alvarez, 25, began the season at low-A Savannah, rose to St. Lucie, then Binghamton and now the majors. He was a combined 10-1 with a 1.10 ERA in 29 appearances (six starts) across those three levels. He had a 0.886 WHIP. A native of the Dominican Republic, Alvarez was with the Phillies in the Dominican Summer League from 2007 through ’09. He wasn’t signed by the Mets until 2013. He pitched in Panama in 2010 and ’11 and Venezuela in 2012.

Earlier today, the Mets promoted 2012 first-round pick Gavin Cecchini to Double-A Binghamton to replace Dilson Herrera and bolster the team for the Eastern League playoffs. St. Lucie was eliminated from postseason contention on Sunday,

Cecchini, 20, hit .236 with five homers and 31 RBIs and had a .325 on-base percentage in 68 games with St. Lucie after a mid-season promotion from Savannah.
