Fernando Martinez going, going, gone... to the Astros


The Astros claimed Martinez, tweets ESPN NY's Adam Rubin.  They had the first crack at Martinez in the waiver process, with MLB's worst record in 2011.

Baseball America named Martinez one of the top 100 prospects in the game before each of the 2007-10 seasons, and at age 23, he's worth a 40-man roster spot for new Houston GM Jeff Luhnow.

Injuries, selectivity, and plate coverage have limited Martinez thus far, wrote Baseball America a year ago.
