Martin was outrighted to Triple-A Tacoma on Wednesday. The Mariners brought Martin aboard as the 26th man for their doubleheader Sunday against the Royals, but he was quickly sent back to the minors after he was lit up for four runs (three earned) over two innings of long relief in one game of the twin bill. He'll now lose out on his 40-man roster spot for the second time in 2017 with the Mariners determining the spot was better used on a higher-upside option.
Martin will head back to Triple-A Tacoma, Greg Johns of MLB.com reports. Martin was called up to serve as the 26th man for the second game of the Mariners' doubleheader in Kansas City on Sunday. He actually saw game action, too, but didn't perform well, as the three earned runs on five hits and two walks in two innings will attest. Martin will head back south down I-5 to Tacoma, where he's recorded a 3.78 ERA and 1.32 WHIP over 33.1 innings with the Rainiers this year.
Martin was recalled from Triple-A Tacoma ahead of Sunday's doubleheader against the Royals, Bob Dutton of The Tacoma News Tribune reports. Martin will serve as the Mariners' 26th man for the twin bill, meaning he'll likely be ticketed for a return to Tacoma after the pair of contests. The right-hander has yet to make his 2017 debut with the Mariners, but appeared in nine games (two starts) with the big club in 2016, turning in a 3.86 ERA and 1.44 WHIP over 25.2 innings.
Martin will be called up to serve as the 26th man for Sunday's doubleheader against the Royals, Ryan Divish of The Seattle Times reports. As the designated 26th man, Martin will only be eligible to pitch in Game 2 of the twin bill, and he will have to head back down afterward. Martin has made 14 appearances (four starts) with Triple-A Tacoma this season, posting a 3.78 ERA, 1.32 WHIP and 40:10 K:BB over 33.1 innings.
Martin was optioned to Triple-A Tacoma on Sunday. The Mariners purchased Martin's contract from Tacoma on Friday, but didn't end up using him in either of the first two games of their series with the Mets before sending him back to the minors to make room on the active roster for Erasmo Ramirez, who was acquired from the Rays over the weekend. The 27-year-old Martin has contributed a 3.81 ERA and 37 strikeouts over 28.1 innings for Tacoma this season.
