Goeddel, 25, was drafted in the 24th round in 2010 out of UCLA and signed for an over-slot $350,000, a rare move for the Mets at the time. He nearly exclusively started as a professional until he was moved to a relief role this season, but he did work in relief in college. Goeddel was 3-2 with a 5.37 ERA and had a .296 opponent batting average with Las Vegas.

Alvarez, 25, began the season at Class A Savannah and rose to St. Lucie, then Binghamton and now the majors. He was a combined 10-1 with a 1.10 ERA in 29 appearances (six starts) across those three levels. He had a 0.886 WHIP. A native of the Dominican Republic, Alvarez was with the Phillies in the Dominican Summer League from 2007 through '09. He wasn't signed by the Mets until 2013. He pitched in Panama in 2010 and '11 and Venezuela in 2012.

Satin was hitting .289 with nine homers and 49 RBIs in 374 Triple-A at-bats this season.

Only Alvarez was not on the 40-man roster. His addition brings the total to 39.
