At the start of spring training, Tom Martin was the leading candidate to become the Mets second LOOGY, but Martin was released due to injuries.

The Mets have signed catcher Javier Valentin, Jose's brother, and lefthander Tom Martin and are expected to assign both to Triple-A Buffalo. source Daily News
