Rangers' Nick Martinez: Sent back to minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Martinez was optioned to Triple-A Round Rock on Wednesday, Stefan Stevenson of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports.

After yielding 12 runs over 9.1 innings in a pair of starts last week, Martinez's chances of sticking around in the rotation were never great, but it appeared he might have gained some hope after Andrew Cashner (neck) was scratched from his scheduled start Tuesday against the Mets. It remains unclear if Cashner will require a trip to the disabled list, but even if that's the case, the Rangers seem content to explore other starting options, as Martinez has proven ill suited for a rotation spot. He's run up a 5.38 ERA and 1.37 WHIP over 80.1 innings in the big leagues this season.

Rangers' Nick Martinez: Lasts just four frames against Twins
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Martinez allowed five runs on five hits and two walks while striking out five batters through just four innings during Sunday's loss to Minnesota. He didn't factor into the decision.

Martinez has now allowed 16 runs through 14.1 innings over his past three starts and owns a 5.38 ERA, 1.37 WHIP and 4.8 K/9 for the campaign. Additionally, his spot in the Texas rotation probably isn't secure, and especially with his recent underwhelming results. Outside of cavernous fantasy settings, Martinez is probably best ignored. He lines up for a daunting matchup against the Astros at Globe Life Park in Arlington next, too.

Rangers' Nick Martinez: Will receive another start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Martinez will make his next start Sunday against the Twins.

After he was blitzed for seven runs over 5.1 innings while replacing Yu Darvish in the rotation in Tuesday's loss to the Mariners, Martinez seemed bound to return to Triple-A Round Rock, but manager Jeff Banister determined the right-hander was worthy of a shot at redemption. With a 5.07 ERA and 4.5 K/9 rate over 76.1 innings this season, Martinez hasn't provided much evidence to suggest he's capable of turning things around, so it wouldn't be surprising if he was dropped from the rotation next week in the event Tyson Ross (finger) is cleared to return from the 10-day disabled list.

Rangers' Nick Martinez: Mauled by M's on Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Martinez (3-4) was hammered for seven runs on eight hits and two walks over 5.1 innings in Tuesday's 8-7 loss to the Mariners. He failed to strike out a batter.

The right-hander dug a 5-0 hole by the third inning that Rangers hitters couldn't quite climb out of, as Martinez threw only 54 of 90 pitches for strikes and didn't seem to be fooling anyone with his stuff. His 5.07 ERA on the year looks fortunate compared to his 6.00 FIP, and with A.J. Griffin (oblique) and Tyson Ross (finger) both close to returning to action, Martinez will likely return to the bullpen or Triple-A in the near future.

Rangers' Nick Martinez: Tuesday start confirmed
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Martinez has been confirmed as Tuesday's starter.

It was assumed when Martinez was called up that he would be taking the spot vacated in the Rangers' rotation by the Yu Darvish trade, and that's now set in stone. Martinez last appeared in the majors on June 4 and has only managed five quality starts in his 11 outings for the Rangers this season, making him a desperation fantasy play.
