Found October 06, 2011 on Matthew Cerrone's Mets Blog:
Yesterday, Mets OF Juan Lagares went 2 for 6, while 3B Jefry Marte was 1 for 3 with a walk, as they made their Arizona Fall League debuts. Toby Hyde says, “Marte was significantly better in the first half of the 2011 season when he hit .283 with a .357 OBP and .402 SLG, than in the second half when he slipped to .210, .263 and .284.  It’s not all batting average: his first half isolated slugging percentage was .119, while it slipped to .074 in the second half.  Also, he walked at a 9.4% clip in the first half and 5.6% in the second half.  He had eight multi-walk games in 2011, but just one in the second half.  What happened?  Can he regain his first-half form in the AFL? You know, the way he hit in the first half moves him closer to double-A readiness than I thought.”
