– R/R – 6’2” 200 lbs – drafted 6th rd 2008 – b. 12/23/84
Satin was second on Cyclones, behind Lutz, on the Brooklyn offense with an .812 OPS in his 45 games in 2008. If he had had enough AB to qualify, he would have tied for 15th best in the league. The former All-American at Cal can hit. I missed Satin when I saw the Cyclones in 2008. He will start 2009 as a 24-year old.
Likely ’09 start: A+
– L/R – 6’1” 195 lbs – drafted 1st rd (22nd overall) 2008 – b. 10/20/86
Havens professional debut in 2008 was lost to a series of injuries. He sat at the beginning of the season with elbow troubles before leg problems sidelined him at season’s end. When he was healthy, Havens impressed scouts with power and his approach at the plate, adjusting and succeeding in a variety of situations.
Likely ’09 Start: A+
SS Wilmer Flores – I will write about Flores, the best Mets infield prospect, more extensively in the Kingsport Mets season wrap in the coming days.
SS Juan Lagares – I wrote about Juan Lagares’ year in which he played 46 games with Savannah and 19 with Brooklyn in the Savannah season wrap here.
