The Forgotten Met....F-Mart's Time is Now..
Still only 22, Fernando Martinez has seen his stock slide to the point that fans seemed indifferent at the news that their once "hot prospect" had been called up to the big club. With the injury to Ike Davis, the Mets could have called up first baseman Nick Evans, but instead have chosen to call up of Fernando Martinez, who could be primed to steal AB's from back up outfielders Willy Harris and Scott Hairston. Fmart, as he is known, was ranked the 30th best prospect in all of baseball as recently as 2009. With good health I expect him to shine and possibly work his way into the outfield rotation.
