Cardinals' Carlos Martinez: Expected to transition back to rotation
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Martinez is expected to transition back to a starting role in 2019, Derrick Goold of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.

Martinez pitched out of the bullpen for the final two months of the 2018 season after making three trips to the disabled list with arm and right-side issues. He eventually took over as the team's closer for the final three weeks of the season and converted all five of his save chances. While manager Mike Shildt acknowledged he wouldn't mind Martinez back in the ninth inning in 2019, the skipper noted the plan is for the right-hander to prepare as a starter this offseason. "I think the front office and everybody would like to see him show up in spring training as a starter. I like those sentiments," Shildt said. Across 118 career major-league starts, Martinez owns a 3.36 ERA, 1.28 WHIP and 8.9 K/9.

Cardinals' Carlos Martinez: Notches fifth save
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Martinez threw a perfect inning and earned his fifth save of the season in Saturday's 2-1 victory over the Cubs.

Martinez picked up his first save since Sept. 21 to keep the Cardinals' playoff hopes alive and has now converted all five of his save opportunities this season. His ERA sits at 3.11 with a 117:60 K:BB over 118.2 innings this season.

Cardinals' Carlos Martinez: Collects fourth save
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Martinez earned his fourth save of the season in Friday's 5-3 victory over the Giants. He allowed one hit and struck out two over one inning of work.

The former Cardinals' starter picked up his first save since Sept. 10 with Friday's scoreless ninth frame, and he has now converted all four of his save opportunities on the year. His ERA sits at 3.25 for the season with a 110:56 K:BB ratio over 113.2 innings, and he'll likely continue to maintain his hold on the closer duties for St. Louis provided that he remains effective.

Cardinals' Carlos Martinez: Picks up third save
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Martinez secured his third save of the season in Monday's win over the Pirates. He went one inning and allowed a run on two hits while striking out two.

The save was the first for Martinez since officially being named the Cardinals' closer after Sunday's win by manager Mike Shildt. Martinez did allow a run, but it was only the second he'd given up since moving to the bullpen. While his long-term outlook remains as a starting pitcher, Martinez will hope to remain the closer for the rest of the season with Bud Norris and Jordan Hicks looming if he falters.

Cardinals' Carlos Martinez: Secures second save
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Martinez tossed a perfect ninth inning Sunday against the Tigers, nailing down his second save of the season.

Martinez has thrived out of his new role in the bullpen, tossing scoreless outings in seven of his first eight relief appearances. He was initially expected to be used as a multi-inning reliever, although he's been called upon in some high-leverage spots of late with Bud Norris still unavailable (coach's decision). Expect Jordan Hicks and Martinez to be deployed in save opportunities until Norris regains the confidence of his manager.
