Fernando Martinez, among others, was sent back to the Mets minor league camp after the Indians game last night. He was hitting .340 this spring, but is still only 19 years old.
The move wasn’t surprising to most but it would be nice to see him get some time in the majors later this season. It wouldn’t do him any good to sit on the bench to start the season. He needs to play every day and he’ll get that in the minors.
Anthony DiComo of MLB.com reports that Martinez has set a goal for himself to play in Queens this season.
