MIAMI -- It's an exciting time at Triple-A Las Vegas, where the 51s are tied for the Pacific Coast League's best record and postseason play looms. But it's still the Minor Leagues.

"I would rather be here," infielder Josh Satin said, laughing on Monday morning at Marlins Park.

The Mets officially recalled Satin on Monday, rewarding him for his .386 on-base percentage and .825 OPS in 100 games at Las Vegas. A clubhouse favorite and a lock for the big league roster heading into Spring Training, Satin struggled at the beginning of the season and quickly lost his bench job to Eric Campbell.

He has been working his way back ever since.

"Anytime you can be back in the big leagues, it's obviously rewarding," said Satin, who will serve mostly as a right-handed pinch-hitter in September. "This season hasn't gone as planned. It's been tough. It's been a grind. But I came out every day in Triple-A, worked hard, out hitting early every day just trying to get back here. It's a lot of hard work and sometimes it feels like you're not being rewarded. But to be back here definitely feels good."
