Angels among teams scouting Eddy Martinez


Recommended Posts

  • The Giants were among the clubs to scout 20-year-old Cuban center fielder Eddy Julio Martinez in the Dominican Republic recently, reports MLB.com’s Jesse Sanchez (AllTwitter links). At this time, the Giants, YankeesAngelsBlue JaysNationals,RockiesTigers and Dodgers are all in the mix for Martinez. One scout placed the lofty comp of a young Andruw Jones on Martinez, Sanchez adds, though clearly not every scout will be quite that bullish. Martinez is expected to work out for more clubs this week and is eligible to sign at any time.

One international scout here in Panama told me Cuban OF prospect Eddy Julio Martinez reminded him of a young Andruw Jones."He's legit, man."

20-year-old Cuban CF Eddy Martinez is eligible to sign now, but his market/timing is unclear. Int'l scouting dir called him "impact talent."

Martinez has 70 speed, 50 raw power & can sign before or after July 2nd. Expected to get 8 figure bonus, would obv send team over bonus pool

It's a lat injury and no timetable has been provided. I've had a mild lat strain before. It's debilitating for a couple days, you don't notice it too much after that unless you're doing intense physical activity like crossfit or in Baldoquin's case baseball. The only thing they can actually do for it is some resistance training, stretch it and massage it. It took about 6 weeks, maybe 8 before it was completely gone and I didn't notice it any more.

Just a guess based off my experience and when Baldoquin got hurt, I think he makes his return in the next 2-4 weeks.

Cool, thanks.

 

I too have pulled a lat muscle. I felt it for 6-8 weeks before it finally went away on its own.

Scouts were mixed on Baldoquin too.  Heck, there has to be some differing reports on Tayler Ward, the Angels newest 1st round pick.  They were ecstatic to sign him, the rest of baseball doesn't understand why.

 

I gotta think that since the Angels scouted him, they already know by now whether or not they're going to sign him.  But it's more likely he'll be waiting for July 2nd and then taking a bigger paycheck than what the Angels may offer.
