[edit] Biographical Information

Josh Satin made his AA debut in 2010 and reached the major leagues in 2011.

As a senior, Satin hit .478 as a high school, where he had been a teammate of Brennan Boesch. He was 0 for 4 as a college freshman in 2004 and redshirted. Returning the next year, he improved to .348, finishing 7th in the Pacific-10 Conference in average. He was all-Conference, joining Jed Lowrie and Brent Lillibridge as the infielders honored. He faded to .222 as a sophomore. His junior year, the second sacker hit .287. Josh batted .255/.369/.403 as the main first baseman for the Bourne Braves that summer. He led the Cape Cod League with 14 doubles.

Back for a 5th year at Berkley, Josh hit .379/.500/.723 with 18 homers and 52 RBI and set a Golden Bears record with a 27-game hitting streak between his junior and senior years. He was named a Baseball America All-American as the country's top second baseman, but Collegiate Baseball and the American Baseball Coaches Association both selected Jemile Weeks instead.

The New York Mets chose Satin in the 6th round of the 2008 amateur draft, taking a gamble on a 23-year-old who was old for the draft. After signing with scout Doug Thurman, New York sent Josh in 2008 to the Kingsport Mets (7 for 12, 2 2B, HR) and the Brooklyn Cyclones (.280/.350/.462).

In 2009, Satin batted .284/.385/.418 with 73 walks and 38 doubles for the Savannah Sand Gnats and was 8 for 22 with 13 total bases and five walks in 7 games for the St. Lucie Mets. He led Mets minor leaguers in both free passes and two-baggers. He tied Travis d'Arnaud for the most doubles in the South Atlantic League.

With St. Lucie to open 2010, Josh hit .316/.406/.459 in 58 games. He had a 2-run homer and the game-winning single to give his team the win in the 2010 Florida State League All-Star Game. He took home MVP honors. Josh then was promoted to AA.
