...posted by Hot Foot...
Fernando Martinez has joined the St. Lucie Mets, promoted from low single-A Hagerstown.

Martinez was batting .333 with 5 homers, 14 doubles, and 2 triples, and 28 RBI in 45 games with the Suns.

Martinez recently made it to Baseball America's Hot Sheet and was deemed
by Kevin Goldstein of Baseball Prospectus as being "one of the highest-ceiling players in the game"

Just before he left Hagerstown, he hit a game winning grand slam in the top of the ninth inning on Wednesday and hit another home run in the first inning of yesterdays game. For a rundown of Mets minor league action daily, check out the outstanding Toby's Mets Minor League Report.

It's almost a lock now that he will start 2007 in Binghamton. He'll probably get a Spring Training invite as well. Everything about this kid sounds so exciting. Can't wait until I can get a chance to see him play live. ;-D

Maine has a good swing for a pitcher but on anything that moves, he has no chance. And if it's a fastball, it has to be up in the zone. Basically, the pitcher has to hit his bat. - Mike Pelfrey

Interview with Mets prospect Fernando Martinez

Postby shortsavage » Mon Dec 11, 2006 5:00 am

I figured Fernando Martinez is a prominent enough prospect that a lot of you would be interested in hearing from him. It was pretty cool talking with him and seeing how excited he is to be playing professional baseball.

So far, so good. Martinez did get the ST invite. He's there now. And he's headed to AA Bing according to Minaya. I love how Minaya pushes the youngsters along. Much different than the Mets of years past.

That is like saying a 17 year-old complaining that they aren't 21. :-b
