  • Martin could be in the mix for saves with the Cubs this season as manager David Ross may use multiple pitchers in the closer role, Jordan Bastian of MLB.com reports. Rowan Wick is the presumptive favorite for ninth-inning work, though Ross said he may rotate pitchers into the role. That could include the veteran Martin, along with the likes of Mychal Givens, David Robertson and Manuel Rodriguez. Martin was an effective reliever the last two seasons for Atlanta, though he only recorded two saves in that time, so he was more of a setup option than a true closer.

  • Martin agreed Tuesday with the Cubs on a one-year, $2.5 million contract, Jon Morosi of MLB Network reports. The deal contains $500,000 in performance bonuses. Martin is expected to slot into a setup role for Chicago, though he could be in the mix for closing chances if the presumptive favorite for the job, Rowan Wick, falters at any point. The 35-year-old right-hander has been effective between stops in Texas and Atlanta over the last three seasons, generating a 3.23 ERA and 25.5 K% over 123 relief appearances during that stretch.

  • Martin is listed on Atlanta's roster for the NLCS against the Dodgers. Martin was unavailable for the NLDS against the Brewers, but he'll rejoin the bullpen against the Dodgers. The right-hander posted a 3.86 ERA and 1.43 WHIP in seven innings across his final seven appearances of the regular season.

  • Martin was omitted from Atlanta's NLDS roster against the Brewers, David O'Brien of The Athletic reports. The righty's 5.40 ERA and .896 OPS allowed in his last 10 appearances was enough to merit exclusion from the initial postseason roster. If Atlanta advances to the NLCS, either Martin or fellow reliever Richard Rodriguez have a chance of rejoining the roster, but their uninspiring performances of late suggest that's unlikely.

  • Atlanta reinstated Martin (elbow) from the 10-day injured list ahead of Thursday's game against the Rockies. He'll assume the 28-man roster spot of reliever Luke Jackson (personal), who was placed on the paternity list. Martin spent just over two weeks on the injured list with an inflamed right elbow, but he proved healthy during his rehab appearance Tuesday at Triple-A Gwinnett, tossing a perfect inning. Look for him to quickly slot back into a setup role in front of closer Will Smith.
