Top Brett Martin News

  • Rangers' Brett Martin: Serving as opener Saturday

    Martin is serving as the opener during Saturday's game against the Nationals, Kennedi Landry of reports.

    The Rangers initially planned to use Matt Bush as an opener Saturday, but he was unavailable after he pitched in relief Friday. As a result, the team will turn to Martin, who will be making his first start since 2019. The southpaw has been effective since the start of June, as he's tossed four scoreless innings over four appearances this month.

  • Rangers' Brett Martin: Activated Thursday

    Martin (COVID-19) was activated ahead of Thursday's game against the Tigers, Evan Grant of The Dallas Morning News reports.

    He last pitched June 5, so Martin's arm should be pretty fresh. The southpaw has a 4.34 ERA, 1.39 WHIP and 16 strikeouts in 18.2 innings this season.

  • Rangers' Brett Martin: Goes on COVID-19 IL

    The Rangers placed Martin on the COVID-19-related injured list Tuesday.

    Texas hasn't specified whether Martin was deactivated due to a positive test for the virus or due to symptoms that could be related to COVID-19, but either way, he won't be available for at least Tuesday's doubleheader with the Guardians. The Rangers will replace the reliever on the roster with infielder Andy Ibanez, who is starting at third base and batting ninth in the first game of the twin bill.

  • Rangers' Brett Martin: Loses fourth game

    Martin (0-4) took the loss Sunday, allowing one run on two hits in two-thirds of an inning against Oakland.

    The Athletics walked off Martin, who has a 6.30 ERA over his last 12 appearances and 4.67 for the season. Some of that may be due to luck. The left-handed reliever sports a 2.90 FIP while opponents have a .345 BABIP off him.

  • Rangers' Brett Martin: Locking in

    Martin struck out two over a scoreless two-thirds of an inning in Sunday's 2-0 loss to Oakland.

    Martin kept the Rangers close by cleaning up a one-out, bases-loaded mess created by Albert Abreu. The left-hander retired two righty batters to keep it a 2-0 game in the fifth inning. Since giving up runs in each of his first three outings, the high-leverage reliever has thrown five scoreless frames, giving up one hit and one walk while striking out four and earning two holds.

  • Rangers' Brett Martin: In search of clean inning

    Martin allowed one run on two hits and a walk over one inning in Thursday's 10-5 win over the Angels.

    Martin finished up the blowout win and probably wasn't being too fine with his pitches, but the left-hander has not had a clean inning yet in 2022. He's allowed runs in all three outings thus far, giving up five hits and two walks while striking out one over 2.1 innings.

  • Rangers' Brett Martin: Signs one-year pact

    Martin and the Rangers agreed to a one-year, $1.025 million deal Tuesday, Robert Murray of reports.

    The deal means the two sides won't have to square off in arbitration. Martin posted a 3.18 ERA in 62.1 innings of relief last season despite striking out just 15.9 percent of opposing batters.

  • Rangers' Brett Martin: Picks up fourth win

    Martin (4-4) worked a perfect inning en route to his fourth win of the season in Saturday's 8-6 victory over the Athletics.

    Martin needed just 10 pitches to retire Josh Harrison, Starling Marte and Matt Olson on groundouts. In nine appearances (nine innings pitched) against Oakland this season, Martin has yet to allow an earned run.

  • Rangers' Brett Martin: Tagged with loss

    Martin (3-4) allowed three runs on three hits and a walk in one inning, taking the loss versus Houston on Friday.

    The southpaw entered the game with two on and no outs in the seventh inning, and he allowed the next four baserunners to get aboard before settling down to end the frame. The damage was done, as Houston took the lead on Martin's loss to send him to his first loss since July 28. The 26-year-old has a 3.61 ERA, 1.32 WHIP and 34:13 K:BB through 52.1 innings this year, and he's added six holds in 54 appearances.

  • Rangers' Brett Martin: Multi-inning win

    Martin (3-3) picked up the win against the Mariners on Monday, allowing an unearned run on two hits in 1.1 innings.

    Martin entered with the bases loaded and two outs in the ninth and induced a Kyle Seager flyout to send the game to extras. After Texas took the lead, manager Chris Woodward opted to stick with the lefty for the tenth, and Martin delivered by recording three straight outs following a run-scoring single. Martin has lowered his ERA from 3.83 to 3.38 with five straight strong outings.

  • Rangers' Brett Martin: Efficient relief win

    Martin (2-2) got the win against Oakland on Wednesday, throwing 1.2 perfect innings without a strikeout in a 5-3 Rangers triumph.

    Martin entered in the seventh with two on and one out after the Athletics had just taken the lead and induced outs from Matt Olson and Ramon Laureano to neutralize the threat. He stayed in after Texas took the lead in the bottom of the inning and retired the side on a mere seven pitches. Since a blow-up outing June 6, Martin has allowed only one run in 8.1 innings across seven appearances.

  • Rangers' Brett Martin: Earns win in relief

    Martin (1-2) allowed one hit and an unearned run across two innings, earning the victory in Wednesday's 4-3, extra-innings win over the Rangers.

    The lefty was very efficient, requiring just 16 pitches (14 of which were strikes) to get through the 10th and 11th innings. Martin yielded four runs in an inning Sunday after recording 15 straight scoreless appearances, but he appears to be back on track after that one rough showing.

  • Rangers' Brett Martin: Mops up in loss

    Martin allowed three hits and struck out two over 1.2 scoreless innings in Thursday's 5-0 loss to the Mariners.

    Martin typically pitches in higher leverage spots than this, but Texas' bullpen has been worked hard due to short stints by starters. As such, whatever arm is available may need to pitch in any situation. Martin has not allowed an earned run over his last 8.2 innings, spanning 11 appearances. For the season, he has a 2.20 ERA and 1.53 WHIP over 16.1 innings.

  • Rangers' Brett Martin: Makes season debut

    Martin allowed one unearned run on three hits and struck out one over one inning in Saturday's 7-4 loss to the Padres.

    Martin made his first appearance of the season after being activated off the injured list. He returns to help a bullpen challenged by injury, youth and inexperience.

  • Rangers' Brett Martin: Back from injured list

    Martin (back) was activated from the 10-day injured list Friday.

    The left-hander spent the first week of the season on the injured list after back spasms surfaced during spring training, but he's ready to make his season debut. Martin had a 1.84 ERA, 1.16 WHIP and 8:9 K:BB over 14.2 innings for the Rangers during 2020.

  • Rangers' Brett Martin: Could be activated this weekend

    Martin (back) could be activated this weekend against the Padres, Evan Grant of The Dallas Morning News reports.

    He's scheduled to pitch two innings Wednesday at the alternate training site. If that goes well, his next live action could come out of the big-league bullpen.

  • Rangers' Brett Martin: Headed for IL

    Rangers general manager Chris Young said that Martin (back) will open the season on the injured list, Evan Grant of The Dallas Morning News reports.

    Though Martin is expected to make his Cactus League debut Monday against the Rockies, the reliever apparently won't have enough time to get fully ramped up before the Rangers begin their season April 1. However, assuming Martin steers clear of any setbacks Monday and in any subsequent spring appearances, he should be ready to return from the IL in the minimum 10 days.

  • Rangers' Brett Martin: Set for spring debut

    Martin (back) is slated to pitch in relief Monday during the Rangers' Cactus League game against the Rockies.

    Martin had been scheduled to make his spring debut March 6, but it got delayed more than two weeks after he experienced back spasms. As a result, Martin is currently behind the Rangers' other relievers, but he may only need to turn in two or three spring outings over the next week and a half to guarantee his availability for Opening Day.
