by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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

Martinez is not in the starting nine against the Cubs on Thursday, Jenifer Langosch of MLB.com reports.

Martinez will occupy a spot on the pine for the series opener as Matt Carpenter gets the nod at first base in order to make room for Jedd Gyorko in the lineup. Across 88 games in the first half, Martinez slashed .297/.363/.476 with 13 home runs and 56 RBI. It remains to be seen if Martinez's struggles in the field will cost him regular playing time following the dismissal of manager Mike Matheny prior to the All-Star break.

Cardinals' Jose Martinez: Expected to DH in interleague series
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Martinez is expected to serve as the designated hitter during the Cardinals' upcoming two-game interleague series against the White Sox in Chicago, Joe Trezza of MLB.com reports.

Interleague play rules that require a DH be utilized in an American League park should guarantee Martinez's presence in the lineup both Tuesday and Wednesday. Despite an impressive offensive season, the 29-year-old had sat in three of the five games prior to Sunday due to his defensive struggles at first base, where he's been guilty of an NL-high seven errors. Martinez is slashing .296/.360/.480 following a 3-for-5, one RBI effort against the Giants on Sunday.

Cardinals' Jose Martinez: Sitting again Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Martinez is not in the lineup for Friday's game against the Giants, Joe Trezza of MLB.com reports.

This marks Martinez's second straight absence and third in the team's last five games. Martinez has been impressive with the bat again this year, but his defense has graded out poorly and it seems those limitations (along with Jedd Gyorko's offensive surge) could lead to more days off for Martinez in the immediate future.
