Cardinals' Carlos Martinez: Scratched from season finale
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Martinez will not start Sunday's game against the Brewers, Jenifer Langosch of MLB.com reports.

Jack Flaherty will toe the rubber instead, with the Cardinals done playing spoiler after they officially eliminated Milwaukee from postseason contention with a win Saturday. Martinez saw his home-run rate spike this season, but he's not alone in that regard. Otherwise he had a pretty normal season by his standards, averaging better than a strikeout per inning while exceeding 200 frames for the first time in his career.

Cardinals' Carlos Martinez: Struggles with command sans Molina
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Martinez labored through 4.1 innings in Tuesday's no-decision against the Cubs, allowing three runs (two earned) on four hits with four walks and six strikeouts.

Martinez displayed electric stuff from the get-go, striking out the first two batters he faced. St. Louis' offense staked him to a 5-1 lead through two innings, but Martinez promptly gave one back with a bases-loaded walk in the third. He induced a would-be double-play ball after loading the bases with nobody out in the fourth, but saw it painfully erased on catcher's interference before bouncing back with three consecutive outs to escape the jam leading 5-3. While the talented 26-year-old struggled with command in the absence of master pitch-framer Yadier Molina (concussion) and was removed after 92 pitches, Martinez did enough to earn his club an important victory even though he wasn't credited with the win due to his failure to make it through five innings. Martinez's next start in Sunday's season finale against Milwaukee could be a huge one if his team can gain ground in the race for the second NL Wild Card over the next few days.

Cardinals' Carlos Martinez: Fans six to collect 12th win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Martinez (12-11) allowed four runs on nine hits and a walk while striking out six batters through 6.1 innings to take the win over Cincinnati on Thursday.

Martinez was nursing the flu this weekend, and he had his worst outing of the season against the Cubs last time out. So, while Thursday's showing was far from a gem, the righty still rewarded fantasy owners with the win. Martinez sports a 3.63 ERA, 1.21 WHIP and 9.5 K/9 for the campaign. He'll look to cap off another strong fantasy season with home starts against the Cubs and Brewers.

Cardinals' Carlos Martinez: Shakes illness in time for start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Martinez (illness) is expected to make his scheduled start Thursday against the Reds, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.

The Cardinals sent Martinez home last Sunday, as they did not want the flu-like bug he was dealing with to spread. Manager Mike Matheny provided an update Tuesday, saying Martinez has already improved and will join the team in Cincinnati to start on schedule. Martinez struggled against the Cubs his last time out, and he's had a tough time with the Reds in two starts this season, allowing nine earned runs on 10 hits over 11.1 innings. Regardless, most owners will want to keep him active.

Cardinals' Carlos Martinez: Hammered for seven runs in Friday loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Martinez (11-11) allowed seven runs on six hits and three walks while striking out five over 5.1 innings to take the loss Friday against the Cubs.

Martinez entered the sixth inning with a 2-1 lead, but was clobbered for six runs while recording just one out in the frame, leading to his 11th loss of the campaign. His rough outing was terrible timing for fantasy managers, as this was the first time since July that he allowed more than three earned runs in a game, and should they survive this week, he's a solid bet to bounce back the rest of the way. He'll make his next start Wednesday against the Reds.
