Rafael Montero parlayed a huge 2012 season into a Spring invitation.
This was published over three months ago on Mets.com, but I thought it was a good way to review where we left off as we get set for a new Mets minor league season. Here’s a positional review of last season’s positional all-stars.
C – Cam Maron, Savannah: A 2009 34th-round Draft pick, Maron ranked second among South Atlantic League catchers with a .300 batting average and drew 53 walks while striking out 73 times. The Long Island native collected 25 extra-base hits while compiling an .811 OPS in his first season with the Sand Gnats.
1B – Josh Satin, Buffalo: Satin continued to do what he’s done throughout his Minor League career — hit. Though his .286 average for the Bisons was a career low for the 2008 sixth-round pick, he supplemented that with a career-high 14 homers while playing three infield positions. Satin finished fourth in the International League with 77 walks and second with a .391 on-base percentage.
