Martinez was almost designated for assignment earlier in the month before a roster spot opened back up with Brad Miller (groin) heading to the DL. Now, the 34-year-old has officially been DFA'd in order to clear room on the active roster for Trevor Plouffe. Martinez struggled in his limited playing time with the Rays this season, collecting just two hits in 26 at-bats (.077). He'll likely head to Triple-A if the Rays are able to pass him through waivers.
