Mets Free Agency Rumors 2012: Fernando Martinez, Daniel Herrera Reportedly Placed On Waivers

The New York Mets have reportedly placed Fernando Martinez and Daniel Ray Herrera on waivers to make room for Scott Hairston and Ronny Cedeno (via ESPN New York).

Martinez is a 23-year-old outfielder prospect who has constantly battled leg injuries. He hit .227 with 1 home run for the Mets in 11 games in 2011. For Triple-A Buffalo last season, he hit .260 with eight home runs and 30 RBI. If Martinez clears waivers, the Mets could option him back to Triple-A Buffalo. Martinez has never played more than 29 games for the Mets in a season.

Herrera, a 27-year-old left-handed pitcher, was acquired from the Brewers last season in a trade. He pitched 8 innings in 16 appearances for New York last season. He was 0-1 with 1.13 ERA and five strikeouts. For his career, Herrera is 5-8 with a 3.72 ERA in 101.2 innings with 71 strikeouts.
