Martin (1-1) allowed an unearned run on one hit in one inning and earned the extra-inning win Friday versus the Astros. Martin allowed a sacrifice fly by Alex Bregman to knock in the initial runner Jose Altuve in the 10th inning. The Rangers bailed out Martin by scraping together a pair of runs in the bottom half of the frame. The 25-year-old southpaw has posted a 1.98 ERA, 1.24 WHIP and two holds in 13.2 innings across 14 appearances.
Martin (0-1) gave up an unearned run on a hit and a walk in one inning to take the loss Saturday versus the Angels. Jared Walsh reached on an error in the eighth inning, allowing David Fletcher to move into scoring position. Martin then allowed an RBI single to Mike Trout for the Angels' go-ahead run. That sequence won't hurt Martin's ERA, which sits at 1.50 to go with a 1.17 WHIP and two holds in 12 innings this year.
Martin (shoulder) was reinstated from the injured list Monday, Jeff Wilson of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports. Martin missed just over two weeks with shoulder inflammation. He'd allowed just one earned run in 4.2 innings prior to the injury, though his 4:6 K:B wasn't particularly encouraging.
The Rangers placed Martin on the 10-day injured list Sunday with left rotator-cuff inflammation, T.R. Sullivan of MLB.com reports. Martin has been a key piece in the Rangers' bridge to the ninth inning, giving up one run over five appearances while notching two holds. Assuming that Martin moves past his battle with shoulder inflammation quickly and is able to resume a throwing program within the next few days, he could be ready to return from the IL when first eligible Aug. 23.
Martin (illness) was activated from the injured list Tuesday. Martin missed the majority of camp after testing positive for COVID-19. He's ready to go following a brief buildup period and should be one of the top lefties in a depleted Rangers bullpen that's without Joely Rodriguez (lat) and Rafael Montero (elbow).
