Cardinals' Carlos Martinez throws six scoreless in final spring start
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Cardinals starting pitcher Carlos Martinez threw very well in his final Grapefruit League start Wednesday against the Mets. The right-hander threw six scoreless innings, allowing three hits (all singles) and one walk. He struck out five in a 5-4 win. 

"He was in a really good place today," manager Mike Matheny said after the outing, per MLB.com. "This was one of those that you just hope they put away and remember whatever it takes to get you back there. That was a good rhythm. That was a good mound presence. That was good preparation. Everything he did, let's repeat it."

Martinez finishes the spring with a 2.86 ERA in six outings (five starts). He allowed just one run over his final three outings (14 innings).

Martinez will make his first start of the season April 11 against the Reds.

Cardinals' Martinez edges out Gonzales for final spot in rotation
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Cardinals manager Mike Matheny announced Monday starting pitcher Carlos Martinez has beaten out Marco Gonzales for the final spot in the rotation. Gonzales will be in the rotation at Triple-A Memphis.

Martinez is 1-0 with a 3.94 ERA in five spring outings (four starts). He also struck out 16 batters and walked five in 16 innings.

Gonzales had a pretty solid spring, going 3-0 with a 1.04 ERA in five outings (four starts). Although, he did have some control issues, walking seven batters in 17 1/3 innings. He had nine strikeouts.

"Marco needs to stay on point because if anything happens between now and the beginning of our season, he's a guy that we have all the faith in the world and believe that he's going to be a good pitcher for a long time," Matheny said, per the St. Louis Post-Dispatch. "He had a disadvantage going into this from the beginning. And we knew that. For now, we believe that Carlos is our guy to start that fifth game for us."

Cardinals pitcher Carlos Martinez not worried about role on staff
by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com

Cardinals pitcher Carlos Martinez gave up just one run on five hits in five innings of work Friday against the Nationals. Martinez, who is competing for the final spot in St. Louis' starting rotation, has allowed just seven runs in 16 innings of work.

"I've been working hard," Martinez said through an interpreter to MLB.com. "Some of the outings haven't gone as good as I've wanted to, but I'm just trying to learn from that and get better every day."

Martinez is still focused on earning a starting spot.

"Right now I'm fighting to be a starter," Martinez said. "But if they call me into the bullpen I'm going to be ready for the team. I just want to help the team win, and I'm going to be ready when my name gets called."

Cardinals pitcher Carlos Martinez goes three scoreless innings
by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com

Cardinals pitcher Carlos Martinez was able to throw three scoreless innings Saturday. It was a bounce back performance for Martinez, who struggled in his last appearance, giving up five runs. Martinez is in wait-and-see mode as the final roster cut downs get closer and closer, reports MLB.com.

"They haven't talked to me about it. My goal is to help the team. But my mentality right now is as a starter," Martinez said through an interpreter. "It's up to them, the manager and the front office, to decide that. My idea is to help the team in any position they put me. But, as I mentioned, my mentality is to be a starter."

Matheny understands the difficult position Martinez is in.

"I'll say that for any of these guys that don't achieve what they're trying to achieve and what they work all winter for, what they're dreaming about and their aspirations in this game, I think they all have a sense of disappointment about not being where they want to be," Matheny said. "But I don't think it lasts very long for guys who go about it the right way. And I think he understands, if we get specifically to Carlos, where we are right now. We've been very honest with him. Just go out and pitch and we're going to try to do what's best for the team. Don't get too distracted by all the scenarios, even though we know they need to be talked about."
