Josh Satin homered and drove home four runs on Sunday, powering the Reds to a 4-3 victory in Cactus League play.

Satin belted a three-run homer off Brock Huntzinger to get the Reds on the board in the eighth inning, then plated the winning run with an RBI single in the ninth. Even with the 2-for-2 effort though, he's hitting a disappointing .192/.250/.346 on the spring and is on the outside looking in for a bench spot on the Opening Day roster.

Reds signed INF Josh Satin to a minor league contract.

The deal is expected to include an invitation to major league spring training. The 29-year-old struggled mightily in his 25 games with the Mets in 2014, slashing a mere .086/.143/.399 with a 14/6 K/BB ratio in 35 at-bats. He'll have a chance to compete for a reserve role on the Reds bench.

Mets sent INF Josh Satin outright to Triple-A Las Vegas.

Satin was decent for the Mets as a part-time player in 2013, but he managed just three hits in 35 at-bats for the big club this season.

Mets recalled INF Josh Satin from Triple-A Las Vegas.

Satin struggled in his cup of coffee with the Mets earlier in the season, but hit .289/.386/.439 with nine homers and 49 RBI over 100 games for Las Vegas. He'll function as bench depth and a right-handed bat off the bench for the final month of the season.

Mets optioned INF Josh Satin to Triple-A Las Vegas.

The move doesn't come as a major surprise, as Satin was hitting a brutal .107/.265/.179 through 28 at-bats with the team. He'll continue to serve as additional depth in the minor leagues.

Josh Satin's early season struggles continued in Friday's loss to the Phillies, going 0-for-5 with a pair of strikeouts.

He has been absolutely abysmal at the plate to this point in the season, slashing an anemic .107/.265/.179 through his first 28 at-bats. Unless he starts to turn things around soon, he could be out of a job.

Josh Satin delivered a walk-off two-run single to cap a four-run ninth inning for the Mets, as they rallied to beat the Giants 5-4 on Wednesday.

Satin had already tallied a sacrifice fly earlier in the game, and his bases-loaded single off Giants closer Sergio Romo gave the Mets the win. The runs batted in were his first since August 21. In 176 at-bats this year, the 28-year-old is batting .284/.380/.398.

Josh Satin doubled twice Monday in the Mets' loss to the Braves at Atlanta's Turner Field.

Satin is now batting .297 with an .841 OPS in 55 games this season for New York. He should continue to get regular playing time against lefties down the stretch.

Josh Satin went 2-for-4 and hit his second homer Wednesday against the Braves.

With a .303 average and 24 walks in 122 at-bats, Satin has been a big asset at the plate so far. Still, he doesn't have the power one wants from a third baseman and he's not an asset defensively anywhere else. He'll continue to start mostly against lefties for now.
Wed, Aug 21, 2013 04:36:00 PM

Josh Satin is expected to start at third base in Wednesday's game against the Dodgers.

With Wilmer Flores sidelined, the Mets will go with Satin at third base over Justin Turner. Ike Davis will make his first start against a left-hander since returning from his demotion to the minors.

Josh Satin went 3-for-4 with a pair of doubles, a steal, an RBI and a run scored in Sunday's victory against the Brewers.

The steal was his first of the season. Satin has produced a huge -- and unsustainable -- .382/.485/.600 line with a homer and eight RBI over 55 at-bats. Mets manager Terry Collins said Friday that Satin could get some playing time in the outfield in addition to his work at first base, which is great news with Ike Davis back from the minors. Satin is currently working on an 11-game hitting streak.

Mets manager Terry Collins said Friday that Josh Satin could get some playing time in the outfield.

Satin has been playing first base in recent days, but there won't be many at-bats for him there now that Ike Davis is back from the minors. The 28-year-old has only made one appearance in the outfield during his pro career, but the Mets are willing to consider all options. At the very least, Satin could spell Davis at first base against tougher left-handed starters.

Josh Satin went 3-for-6 with a couple of doubles and a walk versus the Diamondbacks on Monday.

It's only a matter of time until the Mets bring back Ike Davis, and it will be interesting to see what happens to Satin when they make the move. Satin has experience in the outfield corners, but he's not an asset out there. Still, if he keeps hitting, the Mets will have to find room for him. He's working on a seven-game hitting streak, and he's batting .395 with nine walks in 38 at-bats overall for the Mets.

Josh Satin went 3-for-3 with two RBI and a walk Friday against the Nationals.

The three hits were a career-high. Satin connected for an RBI single in the fifth inning and drove in another run with a double in the seventh. The 28-year-old is hitting .360 (9-for-25) in 12 games since being recalled from the minors and should remain relevant in NL-only leagues until Ike Davis returns.
