  • Martinez (knee/back) declined an outright assignment to Triple-A Syracuse on Friday and elected free agency. Martinez missed the entire season while dealing with knee, shoulder and back issues. He hopes to play winter ball this offseason, which could help him secure a contract, but he might be stuck looking for a minor-league deal given that he's 33 years old and owns a .251/.325/.386 slash line since the start of 2019, which isn't nearly good enough for a player who provides very little defensive value.

  • Martinez (knee/back) plans to play winter ball if he feels good early in the offseason, Justin Toscano of The Bergen Record reports. Martinez began a rehab assignment in early September while recovering from knee and shoulder issues, but he was shut down after he sustained a lower-back injury. It's not yet clear whether he'll be ready for spring training in 2022, but his participation in winter ball would be an encouraging step in his recovery.

  • Martinez (knee/shoulder) resumed his minor-league rehab assignment at Triple-A Syracuse on Thursday and went 2-for-12 with a double and a walk in his first three games back in action for the affiliate. After hyperextending his left shoulder, Martinez was pulled off his rehab assignment for about a week before the Mets cleared him to rejoin the Triple-A club. Though the shoulder is seemingly no longer a concern, Martinez will still need to pick up at-bats in the minors and prove that his surgically repaired left knee doesn't bother him when playing the outfield. The righty-hitting Martinez could be a short-side platoon mate in left field for Jeff McNeil or Michael Conforto once he's reinstated from the 60-day injured list.

  • Martinez (knee) had his rehab assignment shut down recently after he hyperextended his left shoulder on a swing, Justin Toscano of The Bergen Record reports. Martinez exited Thursday's game at Triple-A Syracuse due to the injury, and he'll return to New York to be further evaluated. The 33-year-old appeared to be close to making his season debut after he missed the start of the year following offseason surgery to address a meniscus injury in his left knee, but it's not yet clear how his recent setback will impact his return timetable.

  • Martinez (knee) went 1-for-7 with a solo home run and a walk across two rehab games at Triple-A Syracuse over the weekend. Working his way back from the surgery he required in March to address a meniscus injury in his left knee, Martinez kicked off his minor-league rehab assignment at Low-A St. Lucie on Aug. 8 before getting moved up to High-A Brooklyn on Aug. 15, and then Syracuse for this past weekend. Martinez played seven innings in right field Saturday and the full game at the position Sunday, so he would seemingly have a realistic chance at returning from the 60-day injured list later this week. The righty-hitting Martinez could make sense as a short-side platoon mate for either of the Mets' lefty-hitting regulars in the corner outfield, Dominic Smith and Michael Conforto.
