Mike Baxter and Ramon Ramirez hit the disabled list following injuries sustained during and immediately after Johan Santana's no-hitter, and according to ESPN New York, the Mets are expected to recall Robert Carson and Josh Satin to take their places on the team's 25-man roster.

Satin joined the Mets in September last year, but the 27-year-old infielder has just a .739 OPS with Buffalo this year. Over the course of his career in the minors, however, Satin has been a much better hitter.

The Mets called up Carson earlier this season, and he made just two appearances totaling three innings before he was sent back to Binghamton. Carson has never played a Triple-A, but after struggling in Binghamton's rotation in 2010 and 2011, he was moved to the bullpen this year. He's looked much better there, posting a 1.42 ERA in 19.0 innings with 7.1 K/9 and 2.1 BB/9. The Mets will likely use him only in low-leverage situations, but he does give the team a second left-handed option out of the bullpen.
