    Player News
    • Martinez was non-tendered by the Cubs on Wednesday, Jesse Rogers of ESPN.com reports. Martinez was traded from the Rays to the Cubs in 2020, but he struggled mightily in Chicago. He went 0-for-21 with one walk while appearing in 10 games and was unable to solidify himself as the designated hitter. The 32-year-old will now become a free agent following his disappointing campaign.

    • Martinez was optioned by the Cubs on Friday, Gordon Wittenmyer of NBC Sports Chicago reports. Martinez doesn't have a single hit in 21 plate appearances as a Cub. With just three days remaining in the regular season, it appears as though he'll end the season hitless for his new team. Patrick Wisdom was called up in a corresponding move.

    • Martinez was recalled by the Cubs on Sunday. Martinez will return to the Cubs' active roster after spending just under two weeks in South Bend at the alternate training site. The 32-year-old failed to generate much production in his first stint on Chicago's 28-man roster this season but could serve as a designated-hitter option against southpaws.

    • Martinez was optioned to the Cubs' alternate training site Tuesday. Martinez has accomplished very little since joining the Cubs at the deadline, going 0-for-14 at the plate for his new team. He's hitting just .198/.286/.321 on the season. Billy Hamilton was called up in a corresponding move.

    • Martinez is out of the lineup for Monday's game against the Cardinals. Since making his Cubs debut Sept. 1, Martinez has started in only three of the Cubs' eight games. Martinez should occupy a regular spot in the lineup versus left-handed pitching, but Cubs manager David Ross may prefer to rotate a number of other players in at designated hitter when the team faces right-handed starters.
