There just isn't alot of info on the kid.

Young/raw/athletic with solid upside and still 3-5 years away from making it to the bigs. His first year in pro ball did nothing but excite people even more and backs up alot of the thoughts of a high upside.

A couple of Mets fans here in NC are making the trip to see the Sand Gnat's opening series in April.

From what I understand (from Keith Law's blog and a Mets site that follows the GCL) is that he had a tough time at 3B.

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

Marte is an intriguing player. While his arm is solid, he tends to be a bit erratic in the field, mostly due to his age(17). He profiles probably more likely as a 1b or LF, but he does have average speed and instincts that may allow him to stay at 3b. His bat is really his best tool. He has better than average pitch recognition at a young age, which is quite unusual. He does tend to get stuck in ruts where he'll get pull happy, but overall, you can't expect much ore than he showed last year in rookie ball. Combine that with the fact that the Mets tend to push their top prospects, and you get the sense he could see some action as soon as 2011 with a Sept. call-up, if he continues ot progress as the Mets expect....

Hope this helps....
