At ESPN.com, Jerry Crasnick wrote about nine prospects who could see the Majors in 2009 and make an immediate impact.Â He placedÂ Fernando Martinez at #7 on his list.
There are also industry rumblings that heâ€™s older than 20. No surprise there.
â€œThereâ€™s a lot to like,â€ an AL talent evaluator said. â€œBut youâ€™ve got to play him every day. He can go in and out of approaches, so heâ€™s not the type of hitter who can play two days, then take a day off, then pinch hit, then take another day off. You need patience with him, and Iâ€™m not sure that kind of guy fits in a stretch run.â€
