Houston Astros Activate Outfielder Fernando Martinez

MLB News: The Houston Astros activated outfielder Fernando Martinez on Sunday. While he should see regular playing time at the corner outfield positions, he isn’t someone the Astros will be relying on as a starter.

Farewell Fernando: Martinez A Fitting Symbol Of The Omar Minaya Regime

Former “super-prospect” Fernando Martinez was placed on waivers yesterday.

Let that sink in for a minute. Fernando Martinez – our beloved...

Is Fernando Martinez Worth a Waiver Claim?

Fernando Martinez‘s time as a New York Met might be coming to an end. To make room for Ronny Cedeno and Scott Hairston on its 40-man roster, the Mets  placed Martinez on waivers.
