MMN Time Machine: Fernando Martinez

On July 11th, 2005, Omar Minaya and the New York Mets made a signing in the international free agent market that got them very excited. The former Mets GM had a knack for luring in talent from Latin America, and that’s exactly what he was able to do with Fernando Martinez. Plus, a $1.4 million price tag didn’t hurt, either. At the tender age of 16, Minaya said they shelled out...

This year, he was DFA'd by the Astros on the same day they DFA'd Rick Ankiel.Just as the Mets learned with Ankiel that when you're not...

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.

2013 season preview: Houston Astros

The 2012 season was not kind to the Astros at the major league level, as the team lost 107 games and looked thoroughly hopeless at times. However, the Astros' plan wasn't to compete in 2012, or even 2013...their plan was to compete in 2014 and beyond, and to that extent, the team succeeded by dumping all of their older, expensive assets for younger, cheap assets. In 2013...

Free agent preview: Houston Astros

It will be an interesting offseason for the Houston Astros. The team has holes nearly everywhere, but they're not going to go out and spent nine figures in free agency. That's not how you get better for the long-term, and it doesn't jive with the plan that Jeff Luhnow and company have in place. Needs Like I said, the Astros have holes galore on their team. The only...

Last night, the Houston Astros made a move to acquire IF Tyler Greene from the St. Louis Cardinals; in return, the Cardinals will receive either a player to be named later or cash considerations.
