Guardians' Angel Martinez: Promoted to Triple-A
Martinez was promoted from Double-A Akron to Triple-A Columbus on Friday.
There has been a middle infielder domino effect within Cleveland's organization -- after Amed Rosario got traded, Brayan Rocchio was promoted from Triple-A to the majors and Martinez got bumped from Double-A to Triple-A. Martinez has started 44 games at second base, 25 games at shortstop and 18 games at third base this season, and while he got off to a slow start, the 21-year-old slashed .308/.372/.483 with five home runs, two steals and a 13.7 percent strikeout rate over his final 139 plate appearances at Double-A....

Guardians' Angel Martinez: Optioned to Triple-A
Martinez was optioned to Triple-A Columbus by the Guardians on Tuesday, Mandy Bell of MLB.com reports.
Martinez just turned 21 in January, so he wasn't going to make the Opening Day roster. He's shown well in spring training, though, collecting an .825 OPS with one homer and one steal.... See More ... See Less
Guardians' Angel Martinez: Shielded from Rule 5 draft
Martinez was added to Cleveland's 40-man roster Tuesday.
The 20-year-old worked his way up to the Double-A level in 2022, so the Guardians opted to protect him from the Rule 5 draft. Martinez had an .849 OPS with 13 home runs and 12 stolen bases in 101 games between High-A and Double-A last season.... See More ... See Less
Guardians' Angel Martinez: Headed to Double-A as 20-year-old
Martinez was promoted to Double-A Akron on Saturday, Guardians Baseball Insider reports.
The Guardians' farm system is stacked, particularly with middle infielders, and Martinez is one of the standouts. He hit .288/.384/.477 with 10 home runs, 10 steals and a 58:40 K:BB in 77 games at High-A and doesn't turn 21 until January.... See More ... See Less
Guardians' Angel Martinez: Back from injury
Martinez (shoulder) was activated from the 7-day injured list at High-A Lake County on Wednesday.
Martinez missed about two weeks of action with a left shoulder strain. He was surging prior to the injury, slashing .348/.412/.652 in his last 11 games. Overall, he's maintained a strong .276/.393/.476 slash line with eight home runs, 22 RBI, 33 runs scored and eight stolen bases in 61 contests, so it's possible the infield prospect eventually gets a look at Double-A Akron before the end of the year....

Guardians' Angel Martinez: Out with shoulder strain
Martinez was placed on the 7-day injured list at High-A Lake County on Friday with a strained left shoulder.

Indians' Angel Martinez: Showing well stateside
Martinez is hitting .261/.333/.420 with five homers, 10 steals and 28:57 BB:K across 68 games for Low-A Lynchburg.
At just 19, Martinez is 2.4 years younger than the average player in the league, and he's more than holding his own against older competition. This is the Dominican infielder's first season stateside, and he's making a positive impression, racing up Cleveland's prospect ranks thanks to his well-rounded skill set. Of course, he's still several years from the majors, but managers in dynasty formats will want to file his name away.... See More ... See Less
