Cardinals' Carlos Martinez has seven shutout IP in no-decision
by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com

Cardinals starter Carlos Martinez pitched seven shutout innings Monday. The St. Louis bullpen allowed Arizona to tie the game, however, causing Martinez to settle for a no-decision. 

"Carlos was real good," manager Mike Matheny said, per MLB.com. "Shame we couldn't get him a win for that. But to get through seven and be able to make some tough pitches when he had to, he had some of that consistency today."

Martinez has not allowed a run in his last two starts, spanning 13 1/3 innings. On Sunday, he allowed five hits, walked out two and struck out eight. 

His next start will be Sunday against the Dodgers.

Solid sinker means no stinker for Cardinals P Carlos Martinez
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Cardinals right-hander Carlos Martinez has followed three straight winning starts with three winless ones, but his latest provided encouragement.

Martinez allowed 14 runs on 16 hits in nine innings in losing his previous two outings. His ERA had soared from 1.73 to 4.89. But he could take comfort Friday after a solid effort against dangerous Detroit in which he gave up two runs in five innings and matched a season-high with eight strikeouts.

The difference was his sinker. "I felt a lot better than the last couple times that I threw," Martinez told MLB.com. I felt much better with the sinker. The sinker was working good today in the strike zone and down."

Matheny concurred, but added that Martinez is still simply throwing too many pitches to go deep into games. He threw just 63 percent of his pitches for strikes Friday.

"He just can't average 20 pitches an inning," Matheny said. "It's not going to work out real well for you ... the stuff is there. He looks good. He's just going to have to be more on the plate with it."

He also can't continue giving up home runs. The one blasted by Yoenis Cespedes was the seventh he has allowed in 40 innings - all solo jobs. The rest of the St. Louis rotation has yielded eight in a combined 165 1/3 innings.

Cardinals P Carlos Martinez strikes out eight in Friday's loss
by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com

Cardinals pitcher Carlos Martinez allowed two runs on seven hits over five innings of work during Friday's 10-4 loss to the Tigers.

Martinez tied his season high with eight strikeouts, but he received the loss for his effort. He also walked two batters and allowed a solo home run to Yoenis Cespedes in the second inning.

Martinez (3-2) had allowed 14 runs in his last two outings before Friday's start. He was able to lower his ERA from 4.89 to 4.73. His next expected start is scheduled for Wednesday at the New York Mets.

Cardinals mull six-man rotation, prefer Garcia to Gonzales
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

The Cardinals are considering moving to a six-man rotation to help battle the loss of ace Adam Wainwright, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.

"It’s not something we would rule out," general manager John Mozeliak said Saturday. "It’s something we’ve talked about, but we haven’t decided if that’s the best option for us. It’s something I think a lot about, and I know (manager) Mike (Matheny) and (pitching coach Derek Lilliquist) do too. It’s on the table."

With Michael Wacha and Carlos Martinez not being ticketed for 200-inning seasons, the team is considering whether to roll out a six-man rotation or to go with a five-man rotation and periodically skip starts of the two younger pitchers while giving others spot starts in their place. However, a six-man rotation could throw off the routines of Lance Lynn and John Lackey. If the team does opt for a five-man rotation, Jaime Garcia is the preferred long-term option over Marco Gonzales.

"If Jaime is good to go, we’ll try to find a spot in the rotation for him," Mozeliak said. "When he’s been healthy, Jaime has been a very good pitcher."

Garcia is set to begin a rehab assignment with Triple-A Memphis Sunday.
