    Martinez was an unsigned 23rd-round pick of the Mets last year. Martinez, whose father Chito played parts of three seasons in the major leagues, was a Cape Cod League all-star last summer after hitting .359, second in the league, and leading the league with 22 stolen bases. He's not physical at 5-foot-11, 172 pounds and isn't a burner either, though he's an above-average runner, steals bases and plays a solid center field. While his dad hit 13 homers as a major league rookie, Martinez's biggest problem is his lack of home run power. He didn't homer in 2011, and his lack of impact makes him profile more as a fourth outfielder.
