April Player of the Month: Binghamton



Josh Satin

.318/.423/.470, 4 2B, 1 HR, 12 BB, 21 K – 66 AB, 18 G

Satin had a great month.  The 26-year old makes contact and draws walks.  He also played in five more games than Fisher.





Honorable Mention

Michael Fisher

.375/.412/.563 6 2B, 1 HR, 3 BB, 7 K – 48 AB, 13 G

An organizational soldier signed as a minor league free agent in 2010, Fisher was assigned to Savannah where his hitting start helped the Gnats clinch the 2010 first half title.  He had a nice second half for advanced-A St. Lucie in 2010 and was a beast in April 2011 for Binghamton.  The 26-year old switch hitter can play any one of the four infield positions, although he hasn’t played SS yet for Binghamton in 2011, instead seeing four games at first, five at second and two at third.





Mark Cohoon

1-1, 1.44 ERA, 4 GS, 25 IP, 22 H, 7 R, 4 ER, 1 HR, 5 BB, 24 K, .237 Opp avg.

Just wow.

Cohoon throws strikes with a fastball in the upper eighties that he can cut or sink, a changeup with good deception and a curveball. He’s a thinking pitcher who crafts a plan and has the command to execute it, most nights.



Brad Holt

0-1, 3.10, 4 GS, 20.1 IP, 15 H, 9 R, 7 ER, 9 BB, 14 K, .192 Opp avg

A very nice April recovery for Holt after a 2010 when everything went wrong.  Scouts report that he’s back to working in the low 90s and his cutter has made dramatic improvements.

    Isn’t “makes contact” a bit much for Satin? I know hes hitting over .300, but hes also striking out over 30% of the time. Its more like benefiting from a .450+ BABIP.
