  • Brett Martin: Becomes free agent

    Martin (shoulder) was non-tendered by the Rangers on Friday.

    Martin did not pitch at any level in 2023 while recovering from January shoulder surgery. The 28-year-old lefty reliever is now a free agent.

  • Rangers' Brett Martin: Heads to 60-day IL

    Martin (shoulder) was placed on the 60-day injured list by the Rangers on Friday, Evan Grant of The Dallas Morning News reports.

    It's a procedural move for the Rangers, as Martin is going to miss at least the first half of the season after undergoing shoulder surgery on his left shoulder late in January. It clears a spot on the 40-man roster for Robbie Grossman after the veteran outfielder's one-year deal became official.

  • Rangers' Brett Martin: Set for surgery

    Martin will undergo surgery on his left shoulder next week, Levi Weaver of The Athletic reports.

    Martin hit the injured list in late September with a left shoulder strain. The fact that he's only now getting surgery nearly four months later suggests the issue may have gotten worse while he attempted to get ready for the upcoming season. An exact timeline for his return has yet to be offered by the Rangers, though the lefty is expected to miss most of the 2023 season.

  • Rangers' Brett Martin: Avoids arbitration

    Martin (shoulder) and the Rangers agreed on a one-year, $1.275 million contract Friday, Evan Grant of The Dallas Morning News reports.

    Martin and the team were able to avoid dealing with the arbitration process. The left-hander ended the 2022 season on the 15-day injured list with a shoulder injury, and he recently suffered a setback that will affect his availability for most of the 2023 campaign. Martin will require surgery and should be considered out indefinitely until the team releases a recovery timeline.

  • Rangers' Brett Martin: Moved to injured list

    Martin was placed on the 15-day injured list Tuesday with a left shoulder strain.

    Martin was previously listed on the bereavement list, but the move to the 15-day IL will end his season as the Rangers have just 10 games left this year. The 27-year-old lefty will finish the season with a 1-7 record and three saves to go along with a 4.14 ERA and 1.36 WHIP.

  • Rangers' Brett Martin: Lands on bereavement list

    Martin was placed on the bereavement list Friday.

    Players are allowed to spend between three and seven days on the bereavement list, so Martin will be unavailable for the Rangers' weekend series against the Guardians. Joe Barlow (finger) was reinstated from the injured list to take Martin's place in the bullpen.

  • Rangers' Brett Martin: Can't stop Angels' rally

    Martin (0-7) took the loss and a blown save in Saturday's 9-7 defeat against the Angels. He was charged with two runs on a hit and two walks with one strikeout in two-thirds of an inning.

    Dennis Santana made a mess of things early in the eighth inning, allowing three of the four batters he faced to reach base. Martin wasn't able to settle things down, uncorking a wild pitch that allowed the tying run to score before giving up a two-run double to Luis Rengifo. In his last six outings, Martin has allowed at least one run five times and multiple runs in three of those appearances. He now has a 4.24 ERA, 1.38 WHIP and 28:14 K:BB in 34 innings this season. He's picked up three saves and four holds, but he now has three blown saves, and the southpaw could soon be shuffled out of the closer role if he can't get back on track. Per Evan Grant of The Dallas Morning News, manager Chris Woodward was saving Jonathan Hernandez for the ninth inning Saturday, which suggests he could be the next man up for closing duties if Martin loses the job.

  • Rangers' Brett Martin: Not used for save

    Martin was not used in a save situation Thursday, as Matt Moore closed out a 2-0 win over the Angels.

    It's not clear if Martin was available, as he pitched on consecutive days leading into the game but had thrown only 18 pitches in total Tuesday and Wednesday. He has been filling in as the Rangers' closer, but the left-hander's most recent work may have played a role in not being used Thursday. Martin's given up seven runs (five earned) on nine hits and two walks over 5.1 innings spanning his last four appearances.

  • Rangers' Brett Martin: Struggles continue

    Martin was handed a blown save during Tuesday's 5-4 defeat at the hands of the Mariners, allowing two runs on two hits and two walks in two-thirds of an inning.

    After Texas took the lead in the top of the ninth, Martin was called upon for the save and immediately surrendered two hits to tie the game. A sacrifice was followed by two intentional walks to load the bases before Carlos Santana ended the game with a walk-off sacrifice fly. The 27-year-old has now permitted runs in four straight appearances -- including five over his last two games -- on the heels of 12 straight scoreless outings. The recent troubles have increased his ERA from 2.61 to 3.86, hinting that Martin's time as closer may be short-lived.

  • Rangers' Brett Martin: Loses in non-save situation

    Martin (0-5) allowed one unearned run on three hits while striking out one over two innings, taking an extra-inning loss to the Mariners on Saturday.

    Martin, who has recently filled in as the closer after Joe Barlow (blister) was removed from the role before hitting the injured list, entered a tied contest in the ninth inning. After getting the game into extras, he allowed a pair of hits and the automatic runner to score in the 10th. The left-hander remains an option to close games going forward, though manager Chris Woodward could look elsewhere now that right-handed bullpen stalwart Jonathan Hernandez was activated off the injured list Saturday.

  • Rangers' Brett Martin: Converts third save

    Martin allowed a hit and a walk while striking out two in a scoreless inning to earn the save in Monday's 10-8 win over the Athletics.

    Martin made it a bit interesting by putting two runners on with two outs, but he struck out Chad Pinder to end the threat. All three of Martin's saves this year have come in his last three appearances, and he has a 3.2-inning scoreless streak. With Joe Barlow out of the closer role, it appears Martin has gotten the first look at the bulk of the ninth-inning duties. Dennis Santana and Matt Bush are also expected to get save chances based on matchups, but Martin's made the most of his opportunity with effective results so far. The southpaw owns a 2.89 ERA, 1.18 WHIP and 24:10 K:BB through 28 innings this season.
