The Mets have lost 23-year old lefty swinging outfielder Fernando Martinez on waivers to the Astros. He came into last season as the Mets’ #8 prospect according to Baseball America. Martinez played in 11 games for the Mets last year and he was 5 for 22 (.227 avg, .715 OPS) with 3 runs scored, 1 homer and 2 RBIs. He played in 47 games in his three years with the Mets and he was 24 of 131 (.183 avg, .540 OPS) with 15 runs scored, 2 homers, 12 RBIs and 2 stolen bases. Shame on the Mets for giving up Martinez for nothing. They certainly could have gotten something for Martinez if they put him on the trading block.
