Fernando Martinez returns after month on DL

Mets free agent rookie signee Fernando Martinez returned on Saturday to the Hagerstown Sun's lineup. In one of his first games back the 17 year old star prospect went 2-4 with a run scored, raising his average to an impressive .321. Martinez, who has been called a top 10 prospect if he had been in this year's first year player draft, has been raising some eyebrows across the minor leagues because of his age. Martinez was surrounded by tons of hype entering the season after signing the largest bonus ever out of the Domincian Republic. Eclipsing Miguel Cabrera's signing bonus a few years before. Fernando also stole his fifth base of the season tonight. Martinez left the game early in the sixth and reports are that he will be out for some time with a leg injury.
