JEWISH BASEBALL NEWS — New York Mets prospect Josh Satin hasn’t gotten much playing time in the Arizona Fall League, but he’s made the most of those opportunities.

On Friday (11/5/2010), Satin led the Mesa Solar Sox to a 13-5 win over the Surprise Rafters, going 3/5 with a 3-run HR and a 2-run single (see photo). He’s hitting .476 for the season in just 21 at-bats.

The 25-year-old North Hollywood native was among the top Jewish performers during the 2010 regular season. In a year split between the “A-advanced” St. Lucie Mets and the “AA” Binghamton Mets, he hit a combined .311 (3rd highest among minor-league Jews) with 39 doubles (2nd), 12 HRs, 74 RBIs (3rd/tie), and .399 on-base percentage (2nd/tie).

He also was named MVP of the 2010 Carolina League All-Star Game. Satin tied the game with a two-run HR in the 8th inning and hit a go-ahead single in the 10th to give the South division a 5-4 win.

Until midyear 2010, Satin mostly played 2B, but Binghamton split him evenly between 1B and 2B. In Friday’s game, he played 1B.

Surprise Rafters CF Ben Guez, a Detroit Tigers prospect, did not play Friday.
