Due to the rash of injuries the Mets have called up Outfield prospect Fernando Martinez. The Mets put Jose Reyes and Ryan Church on the DL today and Carlos Beltran is out until at least Friday. Martinez at AAA Buffalo is hitting .294 with a .341 OBP, .544 SLG with 7HR, 26RBI, 21R and 2SB. If he is available in NL only leagues via the waiver wire, grab him now!
Now, as you remember in the article the "25 Names You Need to Know" that I posted a few weeks ago, Fernando Martinez was on that list. For you Met fans, don't think this kid is going to come up and be Roy Hobbs. He's playing in a ridiculous pitchers park and he's only 20 years old. Having said that, Martinez did hit 2 HR off of the Red Sox Bucholz within the last week or so in a minor league game. So for NL only Leagues if you can get him via the waiver wire or your leagues free agency... do it.
