Nationals' Rafael Martin: Designated for assignment
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Martin was designated for assignment on Monday, Chelsea Janes of The Washington Post reports.

He was the casualty when the Nationals needed to open up a spot on the 40-man roster for Ryan Raburn, who was promoted to the big leagues. Martin has a 5.18 ERA, 1.27 WHIP and 21 strikeouts in 20 relief appearances for Triple-A Syracuse this season.

Nationals' Rafael Martin: Optioned to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Martin was optioned to Triple-A Syracuse on Saturday, MASN's Mark Zuckerman reports.

He was a long shot to make the 25-man roster, and he will indeed head to the minors to serve as organizational depth. Martin has a 4.50 ERA over 16 career MLB innings, most of which came in 2015. His strikeout rates have been impressive at every stop, but he appears destined for a low-leverage role if he joins the big league club at some point in 2017.

Nationals' Rafael Martin: Long shot to win bullpen role this spring
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Martin will compete for a spot in the Nationals' bullpen this spring.

The 32-year-old has spent the last two seasons bouncing back and forth between Washington and Triple-A Syracuse, and while his minor league K-rate has been good, it come with sometimes shaky control and a sub-90 mph fastball. That's not a combination built for success in the majors, so expect Martin to begin the 2017 season back in the minors, where he'll continue providing depth when injuries hit the Nats' staff.
