Description: Mets first baseman Josh Satin is batting .382 in 55 at-bats since being called up to the big leagues.
Insight: Satin has a 13/11 K/BB, nine doubles, one homer and eight RBI in that span. No wonder the team was in no hurry to call up Ike Davis. The 28-year-old Satin has played just 35 games in the majors and is unlikely to keep this up.

Description: The Mets have called up first baseman Josh Satin from Triple-A. He'll presumably get most of the starts at first base now that Ike Davis has been demoted.
Insight: Satin is hitting .305 with 14 doubles, nine homers, 32 RBI and a 45/43 K/BB in 59 games with Las Vegas. The 28-year-old is not a highly touted prospect but he has earned a callup with his performance this season. He's a career .297 hitter with 24 home runs and a 186/133 K/BB in 946 Triple-A plate appearances.
