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.
