One of the sources indicated that 21-year-old outfielder Fernando Martinez, who was one of the two players scratched from the Bisons’ lineup, could be headed to Seattle if a deal materializes.
I’ll be honest. I don’t recall many times where a top prospect (even if Fernando’s value is down) moved after August 1st. The Mariners have very little that would seem to make sense. Jose Lopez is not a very good player, Aardsma would not clear (nor is he even close to worth Fernando), Figgins is terrible and due a lot of money. The only thing I can think of is a deal where the Mariners are taking Castillo and/or Perez and the Mets are including Fernando to “pay the freight”
Milton Bradley 1 year 12 million….. Do the Mets do Castillo AND Perez with Fernando as the “tax” for Bradley?
