Fernando Martinez called it “a happy day.”
That was his reaction after being re-assigned to the minor league camp after tonight’s game.
“They gave me a chance to play and I learned so much,” Martinez said.
Said manager Willie Randolph: “Of all the young kids we brought to camp he was the one I wanted to see most and he didn’t disappoint. He has a chance to be a pretty good player and be a big part of our future.”
Also sent to the minor league camp were: pitchers Tony Armas, Nate Field and Joselo Diaz.
