Here’s some more positive news on the Mets front.
Last night, Mets outfield prospect Fernando Martinez belted a three-run homer and collected six RBI’s as the Leones clobbered Cibao in Game 3 of the Caribbean Championship Series. It was all part of a huge night for F-Mart who went 5-6 at the plate while tallying nine total bases.
It looks like Martinez is finding his stroke during this playoff series as he was batting a dismal .191 in 47 at-bats during the regular games leading up to the post season for the Leones.
There’s no reason to read more into this other than to take note of how F-Mart can sometimes show those flashes of greatness we keep hearing about. It was a solid performance for the kid and I thought I’d share it with our readers.
I still believe we have a future All Star with tremendous power potential in F-Mart.
If he could just stay healthy and string together a few hundred at-bats in AAA, we may see him sooner than you think, and I predict that his second cup of coffee will be much better than the first.
