Player Outlook
Austin Martin didn't make his Triple-A debut until July 3 after missing the first three months of the season while recovering from a UCL sprain in his elbow. He put up a decent .791 OPS with six homers and 16 steals over 59 games for Triple-A St. Paul. A key part of the 2021 Jose Berrios trade with Toronto, Martin was regarded as a top prospect as the fifth overall pick in 2020. He hasn't lived up to that hype given his injuries and lack of power (.142 ISO at Triple-A). He does display strong command of the strike zone with low strikeout and strong walk rates. He's seen as potential option in center field but isn't seen having the glove to stick at second base. He could emerge as a center field option should the Twins need depth given Byron Buxton's injury history. However, Martin may need to prove himself at Triple-A.

  • Twins' Austin Martin: Activated from 10-day IL

    Martin (oblique) was reinstated from the 10-day injured list Saturday. Martin will return to the big-league roster after a minimum stay on the IL with a strained right oblique. Prior to getting hurt, the outfielder had seen his playing time dwindle greatly and it's unclear if he has a path to more consistent usage moving forward.

  • Twins' Austin Martin: Out with oblique strain

    The Twins placed Martin on the 10-day injured list Sunday due to a strained right oblique. It's unclear when the 25-year-old suffered the oblique strain, but he hasn't played much in July with just six plate appearances through the first week of the month. Martin will be eligible to return for the start of the second half July 20. Matt Wallner was called up from Triple-A St. Paul in a corresponding move to provide Minnesota with some outfield depth.

  • Twins' Austin Martin: Garnering third straight start

    Martin will start in left field and bat ninth in Wednesday's game against the Rays. Martin will be awarded a third consecutive start after he reached base five times (four hits, one walk) while scoring twice, driving in a run and chipping in a stolen base between the Twins' previous two contests. The 25-year-old still looks to be a part-time player for Minnesota, though he should have a regular path to making starts against left-handed pitching.

  • Twins' Austin Martin: Back with big club

    The Twins recalled Martin from Triple-A St. Paul on Thursday, Bobby Nightengale of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports. He's switching spots with Alex Kirilloff, who has been optioned to St. Paul. Martin has slashed just .224/.289/.355 across 30 games at the big-league level this season. He could see some action versus lefties, but the 25-year-old's playing time is unlikely to be steady.

  • Twins' Austin Martin: Optioned to St. Paul

    The Twins optioned Martin to Triple-A St. Paul on Saturday. With Byron Buxton (knee) returning from the injured list, Martin will be pushed back to Triple-A. During his latest stint in the majors, the 25-year-old utility player went 3-for-14 with two stolen bases and three runs scored in eight games.

  • Twins' Austin Martin: Back in big leagues

    The Twins recalled Martin from Triple-A St. Paul on Friday, Betsy Helfand of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports. The 25-year-old was sent to St. Paul on Monday but will quickly rejoin the Twins as Byron Buxton (knee) landed on the injured list. Martin, Manuel Margot and Willi Castro could all see action in center field while Buxton is unavailable.

  • Twins' Austin Martin: Sent to Triple-A

    The Twins optioned Martin to Triple-A St. Paul on Monday. As anticipated, Martin will forfeit his spot on the 26-man active roster with the Twins reinstating Carlos Correa (intercostal) from the 10-day injured list in a corresponding move. Martin's demotion should clear the way for Trevor Larnach to man left field on an everyday basis, at least against right-handed pitching.

  • Twins' Austin Martin: Stays hot Sunday

    Martin went 1-for-4 with a home run in Sunday's loss to Detroit. He has a seven-game hitting streak and is 9-for-28 over that span. Martin is hitting .268 with a .758 OPS in 15 games this season. While that's not an overly impressive line, it still stands out amid a struggling Twins lineup. Martin may have an everyday role in left field while he's hot.

  • Twins' Austin Martin: Called up from Triple-A

    The Twins will promote Martin from Triple-A St. Paul on Saturday, Do-Hyoung Park of MLB.com reports. The move corresponds with the Twins placing Royce Lewis (leg) on the IL. It'll be the first time Martin has been called up to the majors, and he is expected to add depth at second base and in the outfield. He slashed .208/.321/.250 with two RBI and three walks over 24 at-bats in spring training.

  • Twins' Austin Martin: Sent down to minors

    The Twins optioned Martin to Triple-A St. Paul on Tuesday. Martin might have had a shot at a reserve role prior to the Manuel Margot trade, but not so much after it. He should still have a chance to debut in 2024 but will report to St. Paul for now.

  • Twins' Austin Martin: Back in lineup Thursday

    Martin (illness) is starting at second base and batting ninth for the Twins on Thursday versus Atlanta in his return to the Grapefruit League lineup. Martin didn't play Wednesday because he was under the weather but is back in there a day later. The versatile 24-year-old is expected to open the season back in the minors but has a good shot to debut at some point in 2024.

  • Twins' Austin Martin: Sitting Wednesday with illness

    Martin was scratched from the lineup for Wednesday's Grapefruit League game against the Orioles due to an illness, Do-Hyoung Park of MLB.com reports. The 24-year-old had been in line to appear in his third spring training game, but the Twins opted to give Martin the day off instead while he was under the weather. Emmanuel Rodriguez was a late addition to the lineup and will start in center field and bat eighth in Martin's stead.

  • Twins' Austin Martin: Getting time in outfield

    Martin started in center field and went 1-for-3 in Monday's spring training loss to the Yankees. He's 2-for-5 in two games this spring. After Marin worked exclusively with the infielders early in the spring (he primarily played second base last year at Triple-A), it's notable he played his first two spring training games in the outfield. Martin was seen as a dark horse candidate to win the backup center field role entering spring training, but he's likely ticketed for Triple-A again after the Twins acquired Manuel Margot.

  • Twins' Austin Martin: Working with infielders

    Martin is not moving to a full-time outfield role, manager Rocco Baldelli told the Minneapolis Star Tribune. Martin has only worked as an infielder at the start of camp, but the Twins plan to play him in the outfield this spring as well. Martin didn't make his Triple-A debut until July 3 after missing the first three months of the season while recovering from a UCL sprain in his elbow. He put up a decent, if unspectacular, .791 OPS with six homers and 16 steals over 59 games for Triple-A St. Paul. Martin could be a candidate to be a reserve center field option to begin the season if the Twins don't sign a veteran. However, this news could be seen as Minnesota not looking at him as a viable option in the outfield in the near term, though position flexibility could provide him multiple paths to reach the majors this season. He'll likely begin the season at Triple-A.

  • Twins' Austin Martin: Nabs spot on 40-man

    The Twins selected Martin to their 40-man roster Tuesday, Dan Hayes of The Athletic reports. Martin was acquired from the Blue Jays in 2021 as part of the Jose Berrios trade. He missed a lot of time in 2023 due to a UCL sprain in his right elbow, but the defensively versatile 24-year-old put up a decent .791 OPS with six homers and 16 steals over 59 games for Triple-A St. Paul following his return to action in June.

  • Twins' Austin Martin: Moves past foot injury

    Martin (foot) returned to Triple-A St. Paul's lineup Friday and started in each of the team's last three games, going 5-for-12 with a home run, a stolen base, three runs and two RBI. Martin was removed from St. Paul's game against Toledo last Tuesday due to a foot injury, but he needed just two days off to heal up before returning to action for the final three contests of the series. The 24-year-old has struggled to stay on the field thus far in 2023, as he didn't make his Triple-A debut until July 3 after missing the first three months of the season while recovering from a UCL sprain in his elbow. Over 19 games with St. Paul, Martin is slashing .217/.295/.304 with one home run and three stolen bases across 79 plate appearances.

  • Twins' Austin Martin: Returns from elbow injury

    Martin (elbow) has been activated from the 7-day injured list at Triple-A St. Paul. He went 0-3 with a walk in Monday's game. Martin played second base Monday but also played in the outfield during his rehab. Martin had been on the shelf since sustaining a sprained ligament in his right elbow during spring training.

  • Twins' Austin Martin: Starting rehab assignment

    Martin (elbow) is beginning a rehab assignment with the Florida Complex League Twins on Monday, Aaron Gleeman of The Athletic reports. Martin has been on the shelf since sustaining a sprained ligament in his right elbow during spring training. The 24-year-old should eventually be assigned to Triple-A St. Paul once the Twins feel he's ready.

  • Twins' Austin Martin: Placed on IL at Triple-A

    Martin (elbow) has been placed on the 7-day injured list to begin the season at Triple-A St. Paul. Martin suffered a UCL sprain in his right elbow in spring training and it's not clear how long he'll be sidelined. Martin largely underwhelmed at Double-A Wichita last year but picked things up late in the season and ended up hitting .235 with two homers, 57 runs, 32 RBI and 34 stolen bases over 90 games.

  • Twins' Austin Martin: Out with elbow injury

    Martin was placed on the 7-day injured list Wednesday at Double-A Wichita after hurting his left elbow diving for a ball, the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports. Martin entered the season as one of Minnesota's top prospects, but he's been underwhelming by hitting .240/.371/.296 with one home run and 22 stolen bases. Martin's elbow injury isn't expected to be a long-term issue.
