Cardinals' Jose Martinez: Could challenge for everyday role
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

President of baseball operations John Mozeliak said Saturday that he views Martinez as someone who "could play everyday" during the 2019 season, Derrick Goold of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.

Martinez will probably be given the opportunity to compete for a full-time position in the corner outfield during spring training, but his shortcomings as a defender along with the addition of first baseman Paul Goldschmidt make it unlikely that he'll be an everyday player, despite Mozeliak's comments. Goldschmidt's acquisition fueled speculation that Martinez would be dealt this offseason, but there hasn't been much momentum for any trade over the past month and a half, as Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic noted earlier this month that the Cardinals are "less willing to move Martinez than they were previously." Given Martinez's status as a standout performer against left-handed pitching who's under club control through 2022, the Cardinals seem content to stash him as a high-quality insurance option in the event of an injury to Goldschmidt or one of their corner outfielders.

Cardinals' Jose Martinez: On base thrice in finale
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Martinez went 2-for-3 with a walk and a run in a loss to the Cubs on Sunday.

The hot-hitting Martinez finished off the season in fitting fashion, rapping out a pair of hits for the sixth time over the last 11 games. Martinez only left the yard on four occasions after the All-Star break, but his all-around offensive contributions helped keep him in the lineup in right field even when his defensive deficiencies at first base became too much to bear. Having played 2018 on a one-year, $564,000 contract, Martinez remains under team control for 2019.

Cardinals' Jose Martinez: Doubles twice in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Martinez went 2-for-4 with two doubles and two RBI in Sunday's win over the Giants.

With his Cardinals already up 4-0, Martinez knocked a two-run double as part of a five-run sixth inning to really put things out of reach. The 30-year-old first baseman is batting .304 with 82 RBI in 510 at-bats this season.

Cardinals' Jose Martinez: On base thrice in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Martinez went 2-for-4 with a walk and two runs in a loss to the Braves on Wednesday.

Although he's been somewhat overshadowed by the long-ball exploits of some of his teammates recently, Martinez has remained steady and productive at the plate himself. The 30-year-old has gone 5-for-12 with a pair of doubles, a walk and four runs over the last three games, and he's reached safely in eight of his last nine contests overall. He retains an impressive .304/.363/.452 line for the season as well, which has helped him hold on to an everyday job in right field after his ouster from first base due to defensive issues.

Cardinals' Jose Martinez: Absent from Wednesday's lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Martinez is not in the lineup against the Pirates on Wednesday.

Tyler O'Neill will draw a start in right field as Martinez heads to the bench for Wednesday's matinee. During the first two games of this series, Martinez went 3-for-7 with three runs scored.
