Rangers' Jason Martin: Recalled by Rangers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Martin was recalled from Triple-A Round Rock on Tuesday.

While he owns a 1.039 OPS in Triple-A, Martin has done very little with his 54 MLB plate appearances this season, hitting just .146/.241/.208. He'll likely spend most of his time on the bench during his time with the team. It could be a quick cup of coffee, as Josh Sborz was placed on the paternity list in a corresponding move.

Rangers' Jason Martin: Sent to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Martin was optioned to Triple-A Round Rock following Monday's game against Detroit, Stefan Stevenson of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports.

Martin went 0-for-3 Monday night before his demotion and 1-for-11 with three walks during his latest stint with the big-league club (five games). Demarcus Evans was recalled in a corresponding move.

Rangers' Jason Martin: Steals base in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Martin went 1-for-3 with a stolen base in Sunday's 4-1 loss against the Athletics.

Martin singled his first time up to begin the third and then stole second for his first stolen bag of the year. The 25-year-old has been up and down between the big-league club and Triple-A Round Rock all season long and is slashing .163/.250/.233 with a homer, four RBI, two runs scored, two steals and 5:27 BB:K over 48 plate appearances. It's unclear what the Rangers' plans for him are after the All-Star break concludes.

Rangers' Jason Martin: Rejoins Rangers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Martin was recalled from Triple-A Round Rock on Friday.

Martin was optioned to Round Rock at the end of June but will rejoin the big-league club for the final weekend before the All-Star break. The 25-year-old is 6-for-37 with 16 strikeouts in 21 games this season, and he should provide outfield depth for Texas.

Rangers' Jason Martin: Optioned back to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Martin was optioned to Triple-A Round Rock prior to Tuesday's game against the Athletics, Levi Weaver of The Athletic reports.

Martin was recalled Sunday and recorded a walk during the win over the Royals. He'll return to Round Rock after just one game with the Rangers, as John Hicks was called up to provide catching depth with Jose Trevino managing a forearm contusion. Martin figures to be a candidate to make his way back to the majors sometime later this summer.

Rangers' Jason Martin: Recalled, starting Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Martin was recalled from Triple-A Round Rock and will start Sunday's game against the Royals in left field.

Willie Calhoun's (forearm) placement on the 10-day IL opened up a spot for Martin to rejoin the 26-man roster. Martin slashed .171/.216/.257 during his initial stint with the club and will likely serve primarily as an extra outfielder for the time being. It's worth noting that it could be a short stay with the big club, as David Dahl (ribs) appears close to being activated from the injured list.

Rangers' Jason Martin: Sent to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Martin was optioned to Triple-A Round Rock on Monday.

Martin was promoted in late May and was unable to make much of an impact at the plate with a .473 OPS and 40.5 percent strikeout rate in 37 plate appearances. Andy Ibanez was promoted from Triple-A in a corresponding move.

Rangers' Jason Martin: Remains out of lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Martin isn't starting Saturday's game against the Twins.

Martin will be out of the lineup for a third consecutive game as Eli White appears to have supplanted him on the depth chart. White will start in left field and bat seventh.

Rangers' Jason Martin: Sitting second straight
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Martin is not in the starting lineup Friday against the Twins.

Eli White will start in left field, with Martin set to sit for the second day in a row and fourth time in seven games.

Rangers' Jason Martin: Smashes first career home run
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Martin went 2-for-3 with a two-run home run and an additional RBI in a 12-1 victory against the Dodgers on Saturday.

Martin entered the game as a pinch hitter in the seventh and flew out before lacing an RBI single in the eighth and pulling a two-run homer to right in the ninth for his first career big fly. Martin is clearly a reserve but could see a bump in playing time in the coming weeks if Texas deems him a long-term piece.

Rangers' Jason Martin: Fills in for injured Gallo
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Martin entered Tuesday's game after Joey Gallo left with a groin injury. He went 0-for-1 in his lone plate appearance in a 9-4 loss to San Francisco.

Martin entered as the left fielder, while Eli White moved from left to right field to cover for Gallo. The Rangers described Gallo's removal as precautionary. Both Martin and White stand to benefit from the organization designating Khris Davis for assignment. That, along with David Dahl's lingering rib and back issues, should open playing time in the outfield and DH. The 25-year-old Martin posted a 1.168 OPS in 15 games for Triple-A Round Rock, and the Rangers hope to strike gold, as they did with Adolis Garcia earlier this season.

Rangers' Jason Martin: Makes first start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Martin started in left field and went 0-for-3 with two strikeouts in Thursday's 5-0 loss to the Mariners.

Martin had his contract selected from Triple-A Round Rock on Wednesday after Texas placed David Dahl (ribs) on the 10-day injured list. He made his first start for the Rangers, who are hoping Martin turns out to be like the last outfielder they called up, Adolis Garcia. Martin had been hitting at Round Rock, slashing .302/.413/.755 with seven home runs and 16 RBI through 15 games. Willie Calhoun has settled in as the primary left fielder, and the team has Khris Davis around at DH, so Martin does not have a clear path to everyday at-bats behind Garcia and Joey Gallo.

Rangers' Jason Martin: Promoted from Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Rangers selected Martin's contract from Triple-A Round Rock ahead of Wednesday's game against the Angels.

Martin gets the call to the big leagues after he mashed to the tune of a .302/.413/.755 slash line through his first 15 games with Round Rock. The 25-year-old will likely serve as a fourth outfielder initially, but he could get more of an extended look if Khris Davis struggles to impress as the primary designated hitter in the absence of David Dahl (rib), who was moved to the injured list Wednesday.

Rangers' Jason Martin: Explodes Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Martin started in left field and went 3-for-3 with two home runs in Wednesday's spring game against Seattle.

Martin is a non-roster invitee who didn't blip on the radar prior to Wednesday's two-homer display. He had just three at-bats during a nondescript spring, but Texas manager Chris Woodward spoke highly of the 25-year-old outfielder to Kennedi Landry of "I want to see him in the outfield, in all three spots," Woodward said. "But from a character standpoint and intelligence standpoint, this kid's a really heady ballplayer, just soaking up everything that we can give them. The hitting coaches have raved about him." Woodward added that Martin will be an "easy call-up" if he doesn't secure a spot on the Opening Day roster.

Rangers' Jason Martin: Joins Texas on minors deal
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Martin signed a minor-league contract with the Rangers on Monday which includes an invitation to big-league camp.

Just 25 years old, Martin could certainly have a big-league future ahead of him, though he's shown very little in 51 plate appearances at the highest level for the Pirates, hitting just .200/.294/.244. He's yet to properly conquer Triple-A, either, hitting a modest .242/.297/.383 in 640 plate appearances at that level.

Jason Martin: Leaves organization
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Pirates declared Martin a free agent Sunday, Chris Hilburn-Trenkle of Baseball America reports.

Martin was cast off the Pirates' 40-man roster over the weekend after appearing in seven games for the big club during the 2020 campaign. Even with the Pirates still in rebuilding mode entering 2021, the 25-year-old evidently wasn't viewed as part of the organization's near- or long-term plans. He'll likely have to settle for a minor-league deal with another franchise this winter.

Pirates' Jason Martin: Outrighted off 40-man roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Martin (back) was reinstated from the injured list and outrighted off the Pirates' 40-man roster Friday, Alex Stumpf of reports.

Martin came to the plate 11 times for the Pirates this season but failed to record a hit. He finished the year on the injured list with an upper-back strain, though it didn't appear to be the type of injury which could linger into next season. Even if healthy, he's unlikely to feature significantly in the Pirates' 2021 plans, as he's yet to produce an above-average batting line in two stints at the Triple-A level and owns a 51 wRC+ in 51 big-league plate appearances.

Pirates' Jason Martin: Placed on injured list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Martin was placed on the 10-day injured list with an upper-back strain Monday.

Martin's playing time was limited this season, and he went hitless with two walks and four strikeouts during nine at-bats. He'll miss the remainder of the season due to his injury with just under a week remaining in the 2020 campaign.

Pirates' Jason Martin: Called back up to big club
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Pirates recalled Martin from their alternate training site ahead of Sunday's game against the Cardinals.

After serving as the Pirates' 29th man in Friday's doubleheader, Martin was sent to the alternate site ahead of Saturday's contest. He'll now make his return to the big club after a spot on the active roster opened following Kevin Newman's (knee) placement on the 10-day injured list. Martin has appeared in seven games for Pittsburgh this season, going 0-for-9 with two runs scored.

Pirates' Jason Martin: Up for doubleheader
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Martin was recalled from the alternate training site for Friday's doubleheader against the Cardinals, Jason Mackey of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.

The 25-year-old was demoted early in the week but will rejoin the active roster as the 29th man for the twin bill. Martin has appeared in only five games this season, going 0-for-7 with two walks and two runs in nine plate appearances.
