Here are today’s minor moves from around baseball.
- The Mets have outrighted infielder Josh Satin and relievers Scott Rice, Dana Eveland and Buddy Carlyle, Marc Carig of Newsday tweets. Carig notes that Satin, Eveland and Carlyle are now free agents, and Rice will become on on Monday. The moves leave 34 players on the Mets’ 40-man roster. Satin spent most of the season with Triple-A Las Vegas, hitting .289/.386/.449 in 440 plate appearances. Rice struck out 13 batters but walked 12 in an extreme specialist role in New York this season, pitching just 13 2/3 innings over 32 appearances. Eveland, also a lefty, had a strong year, posting a 2.63 ERA with 8.9 K/9 and 2.0 BB/9 in 27 1/3 innings, but he missed most of the last month of the season with elbow trouble. The righty Carlyle also had some success, posting a 1.45 ERA with 8.1 K/9 and 1.5 BB/9 in 31 innings.
Josh Satin was outrighted as well.
Hope Satin sticks somewhere. He did nothing but hit the cover off the ball in the minors and hit very well during the 1 season in the majors where he actually got regular playing time.
Just FYI, I think Carlyle has said that this past season will be his last. He has diabetes and I believe that’s the reason he’s hanging it up.
Thanks for the heads up with Carlyle. I was a little surprised with both of them (Eveland) being jettisoned. I know they weren’t the biggest names, but both were actually pretty good this year. I guess the roster space was too valuable with all the guys they want to protect and Parnell coming back. I wouldn’t mind Eveland coming back though. In spite of Terry’s inept management of the bp, he managed to look pretty good.
“extreme specialist role” = only used him because no one else was available
