Carlos Martinez not considered an option for spot starts
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

The Cardinals are not considered moving pitcher Carlos Martinez from the bullpen to the rotation, despite losing Joe Kelly to a hamstring injury that landed him on the disabled list Thursday, according to MLB.com.

"You'd be looking at stretching him out just to slow him back down again," Matheny said. "This is one of those scenarios where we just don't know how long it's going to be [for Kelly]. It's not set in stone, and I think you take that risk of pulling [Martinez] out, getting him going just to slow him back down if things [with Kelly] progress quickly."

According to the report, the team prefers to pick a starter from the Triple-A squad in Memphis, rather than move Carlos Martinez into a starting role for a few spot starts. Tyler Lyons and Tim Cooney are both mentioned as possible options for the spot.

Martinez has a 1.86 ERA in 9 2/3 innings of the bullpen, and has yet to throw more than 31 pitches in any outing.

Carlos Martinez takes loss Wednesday
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Cardinals pitcher Carlos Martinez was saddled with the loss Wednesday, giving up the only run of the game in his team's 1-0 loss to the Reds.

Martinez did a great job in his season debut Monday, getting two outs without giving up a hit or a walk, but he surrendered three hits and two walks in 1 1/3 innings Wednesday. He'll continue to function as a key setup man for the Cardinals.

Carlos Martinez still on roll in quest for rotation role
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Cardinals 22-year-old right-hander Carlos Martinez continued his push for a spot in the starting rotation Wednesday with another fine performance.

Martinez lowered his spring ERA to 1.76 by surrendering just one earned run in 5 1/3 innings against the Twins. He walked one and struck out four, but it should be noted that Minnesota was using only a few of its top position players.

Cardinals pondering where to pitch Carlos Martinez
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

While Cardinals pitcher Carlos Martinez has been spectacular in three starts this spring, the team still hasn't decided what his role will be in 2014, per the St. Louis Post-Dispatch.

"It’s a question still to be determined," pitching coach Derek Lilliquist said. "We know what Carlos can do in the eighth inning. We’re kind of watching to see how he handles himself as a starter.

"At some point in his career, he’s going to be a dynamite starter. But what makes the Cardinals a better team this year?"

Martinez's performance this spring isn't making the decision easy for manager Mike Matheny, who might have to remove a starter from the rotation to accommodate Martinez.

"I can’t put percentages on it," Matheny said of Martinez's chances of starting. "The big picture is that he can pitch. It’s not worth him spending time on it. I understand and appreciate he would like to start. We’ve got a lot of guys in that situation. But if he gets people out, he’s going to make it very interesting."
