Indians' Michael Martinez: Goes hitless for second straight game
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Martinez went hitless for the second straight game in Tuesday's dual with the White Sox. He struck out twice.

Martinez is now 0-for-8 in his last two games after going 5-for-12 in the six games prior. The 33-year-old utility man has never really experienced sustained success at the major league level as he holds a career .190 average but he's 5-for-20 (.250) so far in 2016. With Michael Brantley (shoulder) expected to return in early June, Martinez will likely head back to Triple-A Columbus, but until then, he has an opportunity to prove he should stick around.

Indians' Michael Martinez: Recalled from Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Martinez was called up from Triple-A Columbus on Saturday, WTAM 1100's Nick Camino reports.

The 33-year-old journeyman was hitting .288/.351/.442 with two home runs and two steals in 27 games with Columbus, but his .187/.235/.256 career line in 204 MLB games speaks to his big league potential. The move corresponded with Michael Brantley (shoulder) being placed on the 15-day DL, and Jose Ramirez should be expected to see the bulk of the starts in left field while Brantley is out.

Indians' Michael Martinez: Goes 2-for-4 with two strikeouts
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Michael Martinez went 2-for-4 with two strikeouts in Triple-A Columbus' 6-1 loss to Louisville on Wednesday. He's now batting .385 over 13 at-bats this season.

Martinez was given ample opportunity to prove himself this spring with 47 at-bats but he only connected on ten hits for a .213 average. The 33-year-old has been called up five separate times in the past five years by Philadelphia, Pittsburgh, and Cleveland and has thoroughly unimpressed, posting a .187 BA over 433 at-bats. However, given his ability to play both infield and outfield as well as his experience in the majors, he could be a likely candidate to receive a call up this year if the Cleveland Indians have a roster spot to fill.
