Fernando Martinez, who was once the Mets number one prospect for several years until 2010, was placed on the disabled list today with a strained hamstring.
F-Mart is no stranger to the DL and he has spent the better part of his six year professional career on the shelf instead of on the filed. This will be the 10th trip to the disabled list for the 22 year old who also suffers from an arthritic knee.
There may still be time for F-Mart to get his career going, but he has already been passed up by several other Mets prospects. Unless he can get one full season under his belt, F-Mart may never get the chance to be an everyday player with the Mets.
