Cardinals' Carlos Martinez: Returning to rotation Wednesday

Martinez is back in Cardinals camp from the World Baseball Classic and will start Wednesday against the Nationals, Glenn Sattell of MLB.com reports.

The Cardinals' ace will make his first Grapefruit League start since March 1, when he blanked the Mets over three innings. Martinez looked to be in midseason form at the WBC, going 1-1 with a 1.13 ERA and eight whiffs over eight innings and reaching a 75-pitch threshold. A candidate to be named the Cardinals' Opening Day starter, Martinez may get one more spring start after Wednesday.
