    Jose Martinez: Elects free agency

    Jose 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.

    Mets' Jose Martinez: Could play winter ball

    Jose 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.

    Mets' Jose Martinez: Resumes rehab assignment

    Jose 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 New York 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.

    Mets' Jose Martinez: Rehab assignment shut down

    Jose 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.

    Mets' Jose Martinez: Rehab moves to Syracuse

    Jose 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 New York Mets' lefty-hitting regulars in the corner outfield, Dominic Smith and Michael Conforto.

    Mets' Jose Martinez: Transfers rehab to High-A

    Jose Martinez (knee) moved his rehab assignment to High-A Brooklyn on Sunday and went 0-for-3 with a walk while playing seven innings in right field.After playing in three rehab games at Low-A St. Lucie, Martinez was cleared to make a jump in competition to close out the weekend. Since he's been sidelined all season while recovering from left meniscus surgery, Martinez will likely need to play several more games in the minors before the New York Mets reinstate him from the 60-day injured list. Once activated, Martinez could serve as a short-side platoon option for one of the Mets' three lefty-hitting everyday outfielders (Michael Conforto, Brandon Nimmo and Dominic Smith).

    Mets' Jose Martinez: Starts up rehab assignment

    Jose Martinez (knee) began a rehab assignment at Low-A St. Lucie on Sunday, starting right field and playing three innings while going 0-for-2 with a strikeout.Sunday's appearance marked Martinez's first game at any level in 2021 after he had been shut down since the spring while recovering from surgery to repair a torn meniscus in his left knee. The New York Mets plan to deploy Martinez in both corner-outfield spots during his rehab assignment, which will likely last more than a week while he attempts to get his timing back at the plate following his lengthy layoff. Compared to earlier in the season, the Mets are relatively healthy in the outfield and have Pete Alonso locked in at first base, so Martinez likely won't be in line for anything more than a minor role off the big-league bench once he's activated from the 60-day injured list.

    Mets' Jose Martinez: Resumes jogging Tuesday

    Jose Martinez (knee) did some light jogging at the New York Mets' spring training facility in Port St. Lucie, Fla. on Tuesday, Jacob Resnick of SNYtv reports.It marked the first time Martinez has run since tearing his left meniscus during spring training. He still figures to have a long way to go in his recovery process; per Tim Britton of The Athletic, the club is hoping to have Martinez back at some point in September. New York inked Martinez to a minor-league deal during the offseason after he struggled to a .182/.265/.295 slash line while playing in 34 games with the Cubs and Rays a year ago.

    Mets' Jose Martinez: Placed on 60-day IL

    Jose Martinez (knee) was placed on the 60-day injured list Thursday, Anthony DiComo of MLB.com reports.Martinez underwent knee surgery in March that is expected to keep him sidelined for at least four months, and his move to the 60-day injured list will open up a spot on the 40-man roster. It's not clear whether Martinez will have a role with the major-league club once he returns to full health.

    Mets' Jose Martinez: Undergoes knee surgery

    Jose Martinez underwent surgery to address the torn meniscus in his left knee Friday, Justin Toscano of The Bergen Record reports.The surgery was reportedly successful. Martinez is expected to miss four months while recovering, which will keep him out until the second half of the season. He doesn't have a major-league deal and didn't appear to have a path to anything more than a bench role prior to his injury.
