One-time top prospect Fernando Martinez as well as left-hander Daniel Herrera may be in their final days with the organization. A source told ESPNNewYork.com that both players are on waivers to clear the roster spots for Scott Hairston and Ronny Cedeno.
Interesting. Seems like there are any number of guys with less upside than Martinez that the Mets could cut to make room for Hairston and Cedeno, but I suppose it’s not worth fretting over until Martinez gets claimed elsewhere. If he doesn’t and can be sent to Triple-A, the move’s less curious, but would speak to the not-undocumented way Martinez’s stock has plummeted.
