Martinez To Play In Futures Games

Melissa Martinez at The Raw Feed, writes about Fernando Martinez and his selection to the Futures All-Star Game:

Binghamton Mets outfielder Fernando Martinez, one of the top prospects in the New York Mets’ organization, has been chosen to participate in the 2007 All-Star Futures Game.

In 58 games with Binghamton, Martinez is hitting .269 with four homers, 21 RBI and 31 runs scored. The youngest player in the Eastern League this season, the 18-year-old is playing just his second season of professional baseball since being signed by the Mets out of the Dominican Republic in July, 2005. Baseball America rates Martinez as the top prospect in the Mets’ system, behind only former B-Mets pitcher Mike Pelfrey.
