  • Dodgers' Chris Martin: Traded to Dodgers

    Martin was traded from the Cubs to the Dodgers on Saturday in exchange for Zach McKinstry, Buster Olney of ESPN reports.

    Martin joined the Cubs on a one-year deal during the offseason but will provide bullpen assistance for the Dodgers over the second half of the year. The right-hander has struggled over his last five outings, recording a 9.00 ERA and 2.00 WHIP in five innings. However, he's logged a 3.29 ERA and 1.10 WHIP in 13.2 innings since June 17 and will attempt to rediscover his success with his new team. Martin picked up six holds with the Cubs to begin the season but is likely to serve mainly as a middle reliever for the Dodgers.

  • Cubs' Chris Martin: Struggles Tuesday

    Martin retired just two batters in relief and allowed three runs on three hits during Tuesday's loss to the Padres.

    Chicago starter Kyle Hendricks allowed just one run across five innings, but then the bullpen gave up 11 runs in four innings. Martin was the first reliever to enter, and he saw his ERA climb from 3.71 to 5.09 with the rough outing. The veteran is a potential trade candidate given that he's on a one-year deal with the struggling Cubs, but he'll likely need to pitch better before the deadline to attract interest.

  • Cubs' Chris Martin: Returns from restricted list

    Martin (personal) was activated from the restricted list Friday, Gordon Wittenmyer of NBC Sports Chicago reports.

    The veteran right-hander landed on the bereavement list in late May and shifted to the restricted list a week later, but he's back with the Cubs ahead of Friday's series opener against the Yankees. Martin has appeared in 18 games out of the bullpen this year and has a 3.94 ERA, 1.50 WHIP and 21:4 K:BB across 16 innings.

  • Cubs' Chris Martin: Moves to restricted list

    Martin (personal) was moved from the bereavement list to the restricted list Sunday, Meghan Montemurro of the Chicago Tribune reports.

    Sunday's move is procedural since players can't spend more than seven days on the bereavement list. Martin has been away from the team since May 29, and it's not yet clear when he'll return to action.

  • Cubs' Chris Martin: Goes on bereavement leave

    The Cubs placed Martin on the bereavement list Sunday.

    Per MLB rules, Martin will be away from the Cubs for 3-to-7 days while he tends to the personal matter. The Cubs have yet to announce a corresponding move to replace Martin on the roster, and the team is unlikely to summon another player from the minors until prior to Monday's doubleheader with the Brewers. Martin has mostly worked in middle relief for the Cubs this season, logging two holds to go with a 3.94 ERA and 1.50 WHIP across 18 appearances.

  • Cubs' Chris Martin: Option for saves?

    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 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.

  • Cubs' Chris Martin: Signs on with Cubs

    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.

  • Braves' Chris Martin: Joins NLCS roster

    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.

  • Braves' Chris Martin: Not on NLDS roster

    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.

  • Braves' Chris Martin: Brought back from IL

    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.

  • Braves' Chris Martin: Begins rehab assignment

    Martin (elbow) began a rehab assignment with Triple-A Gwinnett on Tuesday.

    Martin has been out for just shy of two weeks due to right elbow inflammation. Given the relatively brief nature of his absence, he probably won't need too long of a rehab assignment before he's cleared to return.

  • Braves' Chris Martin: Lands on injured list

    Martin was placed on the 10-day injured list with right elbow inflammation Thursday.

    Martin has been less effective than usual recently, as he's allowed four runs on seven hits and a walk while striking out four in 3.1 innings across his last four appearances. He's apparently been dealing with an elbow injury that will force him to miss additional time. It's not yet clear whether he'll be sidelined longer than the minimum of 10 days, but left-hander Sean Newcomb was recalled to take his place in the bullpen.

  • Braves' Chris Martin: Tagged with one-out loss

    Martin (2-4) was tagged with the loss Wednesday against the Dodgers after allowing one run on two hits and a walk across one-third of an inning. He also struck out one.

    Martin entered the game in the bottom of the eighth with two outs and Trea Turner on third, but he couldn't prevent him from scoring following an RBI single from Justin Turner. As if that wasn't enough, he walked Corey Seager and allowed an RBI single to AJ Pollock, giving the Dodgers a lead they wouldn't relinquish. Martin has now allowed runs in three of his last four appearances.

  • Braves' Chris Martin: Holds on for first save

    Martin allowed a run on two hits and struck out one in one inning to earn the save in Sunday's 5-4 win over Washington.

    Will Smith had pitched three of the last four days and blew a save Saturday versus Washington, so Martin was brought in for Sunday's save chance. He gave up an RBI double to Ryan Zimmerman but worked out of trouble to convert his first save of the year. Martin has a 3.90 ERA, 1.17 WHIP and 21:4 K:BB across 30 innings this season. Richard Rodriguez worked 1.1 scoreless innings for a hold, but it's unclear if the workflow Sunday is indicative of the current bullpen hierarchy in Atlanta or just a product of the matchups.

  • Braves' Chris Martin: Effective in setup role

    Martin has been scored upon only once in his last eight appearances dating back to June 23, posting a 1.13 ERA and 6:3 K:BB over eight innings during that stretch.

    The 35-year-old also picked up three of his nine holds on the year during that period. Martin has steadied the ship after a couple rough outings in mid-June, and he'll head into the second half as Atlanta's top right-handed setup option in front of closer Will Smith.
