Padres' Nick Martinez: Another three-inning save
Martinez picked up the save Wednesday against the Diamondbacks. He allowed two hits and one walk without a strikeout over three scoreless innings.
Martinez has earned his first two MLB saves in his last two appearances, both of the three-inning variety. While the right-hander's return stateside hasn't been overly impressive from a statistical standpoint (4.55 ERA and 1.46 WHIP entering Wednesday's contest), he can spot start for the club and mop up where necessary. The volume and team context keep him relevant in some deeper formats.... See More ... See Less
Padres' Nick Martinez: Collects three-inning save
Martinez gave up two runs (one earned) on three hits and a walk over 3.2 innings of relief Wednesday to record his first save of the season in a 10-4 win over the Diamondbacks. He struck out three.
The 31-year-old right-hander has been mostly effective for the Padres in a swing-man role this season, and that usage led to a rare three-inning save Wednesday, during which he tossed 53 pitches (40 strikes). Martinez will carry a 3.94 ERA, 1.42 WHIP and 60:28 K:BB through 64 innings into his next appearance, and with San Diego's rotation healthy at the moment, that appearance will likely come out of the bullpen....

Padres' Nick Martinez: Goes five innings in no-decision
Martinez didn't factor into the decision during Saturday's 5-4 loss to Colorado, allowing four runs on eight hits and two walks with one strikeout in five innings.
Martinez struggled with baserunners all game, putting multiple Rockies on in four of his five frames, but was able to escape with a no-decision as opposing starter German Marquez was equally mediocre. The one strikeout on five swinging strikes was a big disappointment as Martinez had averaged nearly six strikeouts per start over his last six turns. It's unclear if the 31-year-old will get another start soon as San Diego's vaunted rotation is finally fully healthy.... See More ... See Less
Padres' Nick Martinez: Fans nine in no-decision
Martinez did not factor in the decision against Colorado in Game 1 of a doubleheader Saturday, but he struck out nine over 5.2 innings while allowing just one run on five hits and three walks.
Martinez was originally scheduled to start Sunday's contest, but he was moved up a day due to Mike Clevinger landing on the COVID-19 injured list. The late change didn't seem to bother Martinez at all, as he fell one out shy of a quality start and struck out a season-high nine batters. The right-hander didn't allow a run until the sixth inning, when Brendan Rodgers doubled home Charlie Blackmon to register the Rockies' only run of the game. Martinez hasn't earned any wins over his past five starts despite posting a 2.92 ERA, 1.34 WHIP and 26:10 K:BB across 24.2 innings over that span.... See More ... See Less
Padres' Nick Martinez: Starting Saturday's opener
Martinez will start Game 1 of Saturday''s doubleheader against the Rockies.
Martinez was expected to take the ball Sunday, but he will instead do so a day earlier in place of Mike Clevinger, who landed on the COVID-19-related injured list.... See More ... See Less
Padres' Nick Martinez: Set to start Sunday
Martinez is scheduled to start Sunday's game against the Mets, AJ Cassavell of MLB.com reports.
The right-hander worked in long relief last weekend but will make a spot start Sunday since San Diego has a doubleheader scheduled for Saturday. Martinez threw 70 pitches over four innings during that relief outing and threw 93 pitches in his last start May 30, so he shouldn't face any notable workload restrictions as a spot starter....

Padres' Nick Martinez: Tosses four innings in long relief
Martinez allowed two runs on four hits and no walks while striking out four batters over four-plus innings against Milwaukee on Sunday. He did not factor in the decision.
Mike Clevinger started the game for the Padres, but he was held to three innings and 60 pitches as the team decided to limit his workload following a stint on the injured list. Martinez ended up throwing more pitches (70) than Clevinger, and he breezed through four scoreless frames before the Brewers broke through with two runs before he could retire a batter in the eighth. Clevinger figures to see his pitch count increase in his next start, but it's possible that Martinez could again be used to piggyback him if Clevinger is unable to take on a full workload....

Padres' Nick Martinez: Walks four in loss
Martinez (2-3) allowed three runs on seven hits and four walks over six innings Monday, striking out two and taking a loss against the Cardinals.
Martinez began the outing with a pair of scoreless frames before Nolan Gorman took him deep for a two-run shot in the third inning. He later allowed an RBI single to Tommy Edman in the fifth. Martinez has given up 10 runs over his last 19 innings (4.74 ERA) but Monday was his first loss since April 22. It's unclear if he'll get another turn in the rotation with Mike Clevinger (triceps) expected to return this week.... See More ... See Less
Padres' Nick Martinez: Tosses five innings in no-decision
Martinez did not factor in the decision against Milwaukee on Monday, allowing two runs on five hits and three walks while striking out five over five innings.
Martinez wasn't efficient in the contest, needing 106 pitches -- 69 of which were strikes -- to get through five frames. However, he held the Brewers without a run in all but one inning and came up big in the fourth when he got out of a bases-loaded, no-out jam without allowing any damage on the scoreboard. Martinez made the start due to an injury to Mike Clevinger, who went on the injured list Sunday with a triceps strain. Should San Diego opt to continue with a six-man rotation, Martinez will likely make his next start in St. Louis early next week.... See More ... See Less
Padres' Nick Martinez: Starting Monday
Martinez will start Monday's game against the Brewers, Kevin Acee of The San Diego Union-Tribune reports.
Martinez struck out six in four scoreless innings as a long reliever Wednesday against the Phillies after starting in his first six appearances this season. However, he'll reclaim a starting role in Monday's series opener after Mike Clevinger (triceps) was placed on the 15-day injured list. If the Padres choose to remain with a six-man rotation in Clevinger's absence, Martinez will likely continue to work as a starter over his next few appearances.... See More ... See Less
Padres' Nick Martinez: Fantastic in long relief
Martinez scattered two hits and struck out six over four scoreless innings of relief in Wednesday's 3-0 loss to the Phillies.
The 31-year-old lost his spot in the rotation after Blake Snell returned from a groin injury, but Martinez turned in his best performance of the season in his first relief stint. MacKenzie Gore is also in a similar situation, but if Martinez continues to excel as a long man it might actually hurt his chances of regaining a starting role should one open up, if the Padres decide they don't want to mess with a good thing. On the season, he sports a 3.89 ERA, 1.33 WHIP and 36:15 K:BB through 34.2 innings.... See More ... See Less
Padres' Nick Martinez: Moving to bullpen
Martinez will be replaced in the rotation by Blake Snell (groin) this week, Kevin Acee of The San Diego Union-Tribune reports.
Martinez struggled in his last start, allowing five runs over four innings against the Cubs. That may have clinched his move out of the rotation in the wake of Snell's return Wednesday, especially since MacKenzie Gore has outpitched Martinez overall. Gore is also expected to to spend some time coming out of the bullpen, as San Diego has the enviable "problem" of having so much starting pitching depth that there isn't enough room for every talented arm in the rotation. Martinez will likely pitch in long relief but could move back into the rotation at some point in the campaign if necessitated by injuries.... See More ... See Less
Padres' Nick Martinez: Surrenders five runs over four
Martinez tossed four innings, allowing five runs on four hits and two walks while striking out eight in the loss to the Cubs on Wednesday. He did not factor into the decision.
Martinez surrendered a solo homer to Willson Contreras in the first inning before giving up four more runs in fourth frame. After allowing two or less runs in his last three starts, Martinez allowed a season-high five runs Wednesday. On a positive note, the eight punchouts were his highest total of 2022. Martinez now holds a 4.40 ERA and 1.43 WHIP with 30 strikeouts over 30.2 innings in six starts this season.... See More ... See Less
Padres' Nick Martinez: Throws seven strong innings in win
Martinez (2-2) picked up the win against Miami on Thursday by tossing seven innings of one-run ball. He allowed four hits and one walk while striking out four.
Martinez yielded a fourth-inning run but otherwise put goose eggs on the board en route to his second straight win. He allowed only one extra-base hit (a double) in the contest and finished with his first quality start of the campaign. With MacKenzie Gore pitching well, Mike Clevinger back in the fold and Blake Snell (groin) likely to return soon, Martinez's spot in the rotation appears volatile. He's at least giving the team something to think about with an excellent two-start stretch during which he's allowed only three runs and nine hits over 12 innings.... See More ... See Less
Padres' Nick Martinez: Earns first win of season
Martinez (1-2) earned the victory during Thursday's 7-5 win over the Reds, allowing two runs on five hits across five innings. He struck out five and walked two.
Martinez coasted through the first four innings but got into trouble in the fifth after allowing a leadoff double to Brandon Drury. Martinez limited the damage to two runs and escaped the inning by getting back-to-back outs to end his outing. Walks remain an issue for the 31-year-old, who has walked 11 batters over his last 14.2 innings. Regardless, he currently sports a 4.12 ERA and will look to build off his solid start Thursday. However, he may soon shift to a bullpen role with Mike Clevinger (knee) nearing a return from the injured list.... See More ... See Less
Padres' Nick Martinez: Walks five in loss
Martinez (0-2) took the loss during Friday's 6-1 defeat at the hands of the Dodgers, allowing two runs on four hits and five walks with four strikeouts in 4.2 innings.
Martinez was able to keep Los Angeles off the board early despite traffic on the bases but was done in by two solo homers in the fifth inning, which prompted his removal. After pitching well in his first start of the season, the 31-year-old has now surrendered six runs in 9.2 innings with nine walks over his last two starts. He'll look to rebound against Cincinnati on Thursday.... See More ... See Less
Padres' Nick Martinez: Hit hard in Saturday's loss
Martinez (0-1) took the loss Saturday as the Padres fell 5-2 to Atlanta, giving up four runs on seven hits -- including three home runs -- and four walks over five innings. He struck out three.
It was a rough outing for Martinez, who had trouble finding the plate and caught too much of it when he did. The 31-year-old right-hander has a 4.50 ERA and 9:5 K:BB through his first 10 innings in his return to MLB, and the jury is still out on how reliable he'll be this season from a fantasy perspective....
