F-Mart Should Play Center

14 Mar

John Harper of the NY Daily News suggests this morning that Fernando Martinez should be the centerfield substitute for Carlos Beltran until the star center fielder returns.  Martinez is having a great spring, following winning the MVP award of the Caribbean Series this winter.

The worst case for Martinez is if he struggles, they can send him the Buffalo where he will continue to grow as a ball player. He may add some energy to the Mets and become a bright spot in a month that may be difficult if Reyes is out. If Jenrry Mejia makes the club, Mets fans will have two of their top prospects on the club.

While we probably won’t see Josh Thole much this season, unless there are injuries and/or the Mets fall out of contention. Ike Davis will be waiting in the wings if Daniel Murphy fails.
