Tabata vs. Martinez

The top hitting prospects for the Yanks and Mets, evaluated by John Sickels.

He has outstanding bat speed, and shows ability against both fastballs and breaking balls. His strike zone judgment is very good. All of his tools rate as average or better... He has the arm for right field, and with more experience his defense will play there without problem... His batting average and OBP could be more consistent than Martinez's, and Tabata should keep his running speed longer. He projects as an All-Star right fielder.
