Cardinals' Carlos Martinez: Baffled by early-season struggles
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Martinez, who is 0-3 with a 4.76 ERA over his first four starts, is at a loss as to the source of his problems thus far this season, Derrick Goold of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports. "I'm not really sure what's going on," he said. "I'm just trying to find my rhythm and get the mechanics down right. It's just trying to locate that fastball."

The assumed ace of the Cardinals staff has been anything but early this season, failing to make it past the sixth inning in his last three trips to the mound after an excellent Opening Night start versus the Cubs. Martinez has had trouble consistently harnessing his fastball and also experienced control problems in the first inning during his last two starts, issuing six free passes and allowing four runs to the 15 hitters he's faced in the first innings in that pair of games. There's been some speculation that Martinez's participation in the World Baseball Classic could have had a negative carryover effect, although manager Mike Matheny largely dismisses the notion, noting that the 25-year-old would have gotten about the same amount of work had he remained with the team during the spring.

Cardinals' Carlos Martinez: Serves up two homers in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Martinez (0-3) gave up five runs on seven hits and two walks en route to the loss Thursday against the Brewers. He also struck out seven.

Since a dazzling Opening Day start, "Tsunami" has been a bit disappointing. The strikeout numbers are there, but his control has been shaky at best. Although he only walked a pair of batters in Thursday's contest, firing 51 of his 80 offerings for strikes led to a good number of hitter-friendly counts. He also was stung for two home runs, which ultimately got him hooked with the loss despite a solid offensive showing from St. Louis. Martinez will look to pick up his first win of the season in his next start Wednesday against the Blue Jays.

Cardinals' Carlos Martinez: Fans 11 Yankees in losing effort
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Martinez (0-2) allowed three runs -- two earned -- on four hits and eight walks while striking out 11 batters through 5.1 innings during Saturday's loss to the Yankees.

After the Reds beat Martinez around in his previous start, Saturday's performance was a step in the right direction, especially in the strikeouts column. The 25-year-old hurler posted a rock-solid 3.02 ERA (3.42 FIP) with a 22.9 strikeout percentage over the previous two seasons, which highlights his tremendous upside. He'll look to secure his first win of the season on the road against the Brewers on Thursday.

Cardinals' Carlos Martinez: Hit hard in second start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Martinez (0-1) gave up six runs (five earned) on six hits and one walk over five-plus innings in Sunday's 8-0 loss to the Reds. He struck out three.

Martinez labored through 89 pitches and bore no semblance to the pitcher that was highly effective at times during spring and on Opening Day. Martinez had particular trouble with Adam Duvall, who tagged him for a solo home run in the second and an RBI single in the sixth. Martinez was saddled with an extra run after exiting when Brett Cecil surrendered a double to Scott Schebler that plated Eugenio Suarez with help from an error by right fielder Randal Grichuk. The Cardinals ace will look to right the ship in a Friday night road at Yankee Stadium later this week.

Cardinals' Carlos Martinez: Dazzles in no-decision in season opener
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Martinez tossed 7.1 shutout innings and allowed six hits and no walks in Sunday's no-decision against the Cubs Sunday night. He struck out 10.

Martinez certainly deserved the victory in this one, but new closer Seung Hwan Oh blew the save in the top of the ninth inning by allowing a three-run bomb to Willson Contreras. Martinez certainly proved he's both a real-life and fantasy ace in this one. He has the ability to get plenty of groundballs while also posting high-strikeout totals for fantasy owners.
