Has pretty good size and pop in his bat, and he generally makes pretty sound contact on a consistent basis. Is versatile afield and can draw a fair share of walks.
Doesn't have a lot of base-stealing speed and his home-run power lacks consistency. Defensively, he's a man without a true position at the big-league level.
Solid contact hitter and bat off the bench.

Mets option Josh Satin to Triple-A Las Vegas | 05/10/2014 2:25 PM
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 goes hitless again in loss Friday | 05/09/2014 11:59 PM
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.
Satin delivers walk-off in win over Giants | 09/18/2013 10:41 PM
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.
Satin doubles twice but Mets fall to Braves | 09/02/2013 4:58 PM
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 hits second homer for Mets | 08/21/2013 4:36 PM
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.
Josh Satin to start at third base Wednesday | 08/14/2013 9:34 AM
Josh Satin is expected to start at third base in Wednesday's game against the Dodgers.
New York Daily News
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.
Satin goes 3-for-4 with a pair of doubles | 07/07/2013 7:18 PM
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.
Satin could get time in outfield | 07/05/2013 5:16 PM
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 goes 3-for-6 against Arizona | 07/02/2013 12:31 AM
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.
Satin has three hits vs. Nationals on Friday | 06/28/2013 10:38 PM
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.
Mets call up 1B Satin from Triple-A | 06/11/2013 12:13 PM
Mets purchased the contract of 1B Josh Satin from Triple-A Las Vegas.
Now that Ike Davis is in the minors, Satin figures to share playing time with the likes of Daniel Murphy and Justin Turner at first base. The 28-year-old was batting .306/.421/.491 with nine home runs and 32 RBI in 59 games this season in Triple-A and is worth picking up in NL-only formats.
Mets to call up Josh Satin on Monday | 06/09/2013 9:29 PM
The Mets are expected to call up Josh Satin from Triple-A Buffalo on Monday.
With Ike Davis demoted to the minors, Satin should see the majority of starts at first base. Collin Cowgill and Josh Edgin have also been recalled by the Mets. Satin, 28, is batting .306/.421/.491 with nine home runs and 32 RBI at the Triple-A level.
