Mike Baxter Injury Update: Mets Send Outfielder To 15-Day DL, Call Up 2B Josh Satin

The New York Mets announced on Sunday that outfielder Mike Baxter has been placed on the 15-day disabled list with a displaced right collarbone and fractured rib cage cartilage.

Baxter was injured during the Mets' first-ever no-hitter on Friday. Baxter crashed into the outfield wall while making a catch, injuring his left shoulder in the seventh inning. Baxter hit .323 and appeared in 40 games for New York this season.

After sending Baxter to the disabled list, the Mets called up second baseman Josh Satin. Satin has five hits, two RBI, one walk and 11 strikeouts in 25 career MLB at-bats. Satin has been playing for Triple-A Buffalo this season and has hit .274 with three homers, 15 RBI, 23 walks and 52 strikeouts for the Bisons in 2012.
