Adam Rubin of ESPN New York is reporting that Fernando Martinez and Daniel Herrera have been placed on waivers in order to make room on the 40-man roster for Scott Hairston and Ronny Cedeno.
According to Rubin, Herrera can opt for free agency.
Fernando Martinez is a prime example of how a being labeled a top prospect means nothing. It's just a label. The once highly touted outfielder has never played more than 90 games in a season and now, at 23, he now suffers from arthritis.
