The 21-year old Martinez has hit .255/.321/.466 for Buffalo. He's come out of a 3-36 slump at the end of July to hit .435 (10/23) with three doubles, two home runs, four walks and six strikeouts in his last seven games. Seven games. Again, he's hitting .255 this year, at AAA.
Yes, he's hopefully part of the future in a way Failcouer is not, but .... the future is not now. Or is it time travel people?
The kids over at Lookout Landing used the Tejada/Martinez scratch to discuss a Figgins+cash for Castillo and a prospect swap. The 32 year old Figgins is getting paid $8.5 million to hit .251/.342/.303 this year.
More when this thing is official.
