Over at, Jon Star profiles Fernando Martinez. "Fernando is like everyone says. He's a special kid that has great talent, especially at the plate. He's got a good eye, he knows exactly the pitches he wants to hit, and he's got good power to the gaps, but we worked with him on staying level and stay consistent. We want the kids to be good hitters first, the power's there. Just concentrate more on being a gap-to-gap guy, line drives instead of trying to lift the ball. If you become a good hitter, then you become a power hitter."

Also, there is an article on Brandon Nall. Armed with one of the best sliders in the farm system, the right-hander with the atypical delivery continues to climb the ladder as a reliable late-game arm. The 25-year-old right-hander, who was plucked out of a free agent pool following the 2005 draft, returned to Binghamton and was assigned the role of stop-gap from the starters to closer Carlos Muniz."
