Despite his recent call-up from Triple-A Las Vegas to the Mets, Josh Satin is not happy with his 2014 season. According to ESPN New York, Satin understands why he hasn't been recalled until now.
"Anytime you can get back to the big leagues, it's obviously rewarding. This season hasn't gone as planned. It's been tough. It's been a grind. But I came out every day in Triple-A and worked hard. I was hitting early every day, just trying to get back here."
After hitting .276/.376/.405 over 221 major league plate appearances in 2013, Satin started the 2014 season as a utility infielder for the Mets. With limited playing time, he struggled to get his bat going, hitting just .107 in 34 plate appearances to start the season. On May 10, Satin was optioned to Las Vegas, and Eric Campbell has performed admirably in Satin's former role. At age 29. it's doubtful that Satin will have any sort of major role with Mets going forward, but with a solid month of September he could put himself in contention for a 2015 Opening Day roster spot.
