Baseball America lists Mets minor league outfielder Fernando Martinez at #30 in their list of top 100 prospects. They estimate that he’ll be in the majors in 2010 and that’s fine. He’s only 20 years old. But I have a feeling we’re going to see him in one of the corner outfield positions for some period of time this year. Whether it’s an injury or poor performance, I think Martinez will spend at least one month at the major league level this year.
I might have to make the trek to Triple-A Buffalo this summer to see Martinez play. That’s where I expect him to be for most of this season.
