(WBNG Binghamton) Binghamton Mets infielder Josh Satin has been named to the 2011 Eastern League Postseason All-Star Team.
Currently playing with the Buffalo Bisons (AAA) of the International League, Satin earns his first postseason All-Star honors.
Satin, 26, tore up the Eastern League, hitting .325 in 94 games with the B-Mets.
He collected 35 doubles, ripped 11 home runs, and compiled a .423 on-base percentage.
With 404 plate appearances, Satin will remain on the league leader board through the end of the season.
He currently sits first in on-base percentage (.423), third in batting average (.325) and slugging percentage (.538), and tied for third in doubles (35).
In his second stint at the Double-A level, Satin jumped right out of the gate, winning the Eastern League Player of the Week award in mid-April.
He hit .319 during the first month of the season and kicked his average to .324 heading into the All-Star Break.
Satin was rewarded for his consistent offense with a trip to the Eastern League All-Star Game in Manchester, New Hampshire.
In his third straight All-Star contest, Satin started at second base and went 0-for-1 with a walk.
Satin closed out his time with the B-Mets on a high-note, reaching base safely in his final 45 games, the longest streak of the season for any Eastern Leaguer.
The stretch included a historic night against the Bowie Baysox, when he became the first B-Met in the franchise’s 20-year history to hit for the cycle, performing the feat on June 24.
His efforts earned him a promotion to the Buffalo Bisons on July 22.
Satin has kept the offense going at the next level.
In 32 games with the New York Mets’ Triple-A affiliate, he has hit .331, collected seven doubles and driven in 15 runs.
He recently compiled a 15-game hitting streak, the fourth-longest for any Bison this season.
