The Mets have recalled infielder/outfielder Nick Evans from Binghamton and optioned outfielder Fernando Martinez to Buffalo.
Evans, 23, was hitting .323 in June with nine multi-hit games for the B-Mets. Since June 4th, he’s batting .377 (20-53) with seven doubles, one triple, two home runs, and seven RBI. Overall, the righthanded batter was hitting .276 (29-105) with nine doubles, one triple, nine RBI in 25 games with Double-A Binghamton.
Martinez, 20, hit .194 (12-64) with five doubles and five RBI in 18 games with the Mets.
It would be easy to label F-Mart’s first taste of the majors a failure, but he is just 20. He’ll be back.
