Martinez (knee/back) plans to play winter ball if he feels good early in the offseason, Justin Toscano of The Bergen Record reports.

Martinez began a rehab assignment in early September while recovering from knee and shoulder issues, but he was shut down after he sustained a lower-back injury. It's not yet clear whether he'll be ready for spring training in 2022, but his participation in winter ball would be an encouraging step in his recovery.
