Fernando Martinez is the No. 1 story on the 2009 Bisons. So learn the name now. He's the Mets' top prospect, an outfielder they hope will spend many years in Citi Field after they refused to trade him to Minnesota last year as part of the Johan Santana deal.
New York Daily News columnist John Harper has a pretty interesting look at Martinez in today's paper but here's a red flag for Bisons' fans: The 20-year-old suffered an elbow injury on a throw in winter ball and has been limited to DH duties so far this spring. Uh-oh.
