My favorite part of that article:

Fernando Martinez wrote:"I signed with the Mets because I like the Mets."


You have to hope that begets team loyalty in the future. I think we'll want this kid on the team for a long time.

Fernando Martinez, the Mets' 18-year-old marvel, was pulled from Sunday's Double-A Binghamton game because he was "not running as hard to first base," according to Mets VP of Player Development Tony Bernazard.

"It's a policy of the organization no matter who it is," said Bernazard, who said he spoke with the outfielder on Sunday.

New York Post

Story continued on Mark Hale's blog...

As you know from my story, Fernando Martinez -- the Mets' 18-year-old outfielder in Double-A Binghamton who's the best position prospect in the organization -- was removed from the game on Sunday for not going all-out to first base.

Mets VP of player development Tony Bernazard told me it's the first time this has happened to Martinez. Of his conversation with Martinez on Sunday, Bernazard said, "It went well. This is a very smart kid. He's embarrassed."

Added Bernazard, "Eighteen-year-old kid got frustrated. He learned his lesson from that. He's a kid that's very talented, very proud. He wants to do great. But 18 years old, he learned his lesson."

Martinez was hitting .231 with a homer through 10 games going into yesterday. He had drawn five walks, too, and stolen two bases. Bernazard said Martinez has been "having very good at-bats. He's going to hit."

Is Martinez's effort on Sunday something to worry about as a Met fan? Not right now, I don't think. Assuming this doesn't happen again, then I think Bernazard is right -- it's a teenager who just got upset. Not a major deal. I also met Martinez in spring training and got the impression he was polite and not a bad kid or anything.

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

According to SNY, Martinez's injury is a broken hand. He'll miss ~6 weeks. It doesn't say if that includes the couple of weeks he's already missed. :-/

Are you sure you're not referring to Carlos Gomez?

Unfortunately I'm sure. :-/

They both have broken hands and similar time frames.
