Cubs' Nick Martini: Rejoins big-league club
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Martini was recalled from Triple-A Iowa on Tuesday, Jordan Bastian of MLB.com reports.

The 31-year-old was sent to Triple-A over the weekend but will quickly rejoin the major-league roster with Alfonso Rivas (finger) landing on the injured list. Martini has appeared in 22 games for the Cubs this season and has a .158/.227/.211 slash line.

Cubs' Nick Martini: Returns to minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Cubs optioned Martini to Triple-A Iowa on Sunday, Meghan Montemurro of the Chicago Tribune reports.

Martini went 2-for-7 with a double and one RBI in his latest stint with the Cubs, raising his season-long average to .158 in 19 total at-bats. Barring other injuries on the big-league club, it seems unlikely Martini gets another call-up before the season ends.

Cubs' Nick Martini: Contract selected by Cubs
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Martini's contract was selected from Triple-A Iowa on Wednesday, Meghan Montemurro of the Chicago Tribune reports.

Martini was outrighted to the minors in early June, and he slashed .274/.384/.444 with 10 homers, 51 runs, 38 RBI and two stolen bases in 71 minor-league games since then. The 31-year-old will serve as outfield depth after Michael Hermosillo (forearm) was placed on the 10-day injured list.

Cubs' Nick Martini: Clears waivers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Cubs outrighted Martini to Triple-A Iowa on Monday.

Martini will remain in the organization after he wasn't claimed off waivers when the Cubs removed him from the 40-man roster Saturday. The 30-year-old outfielder appeared in 12 games for the big club, going 1-for-12 at the dish.

Cubs' Nick Martini: Designated for assignment
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Martini was designated for assignment by the Cubs on Saturday, Meghan Montemurro of the Chicago Tribune reports.

Martini spent just over two weeks on the major-league roster, but he appeared in just seven games during his most recent stint with the Cubs. He'll now be removed from the 40-man roster as part of a shuffle to make room for right-hander Dakota Chalmers, who was claimed off waivers Saturday.

Cubs' Nick Martini: Recalled, starting
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Martini was recalled by the Cubs and is starting Thursday's game against the Nationals.

Martini will rejoin the major-league roster after Jason Heyward (hamstring) was placed on the 10-day injured list in a corresponding move. The 30-year-old didn't see much playing time during his first stint in the majors this year, but he'll start in right field and bat seventh in Thursday's series finale against the Nationals.

Cubs' Nick Martini: Dropped from active roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Martini was optioned to Triple-A Iowa on Friday, Meghan Montemurro of the Chicago Tribune reports.

Martini spent one week on the Cubs' active roster but didn't see much action, going 1-for-5 at the plate. Nico Hoerner (forearm) returned from the injured list in a corresponding move.

Cubs' Nick Martini: Contract selected by Cubs
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Martini's contract was selected by the Cubs on Friday, Tony Andracki of Marquee Sports Network reports.

The 30-year-old has played 87 games at the highest level and owns a respectable .269/.378/.380 slash line. He was part of the Phillies' player pool last season but never made the active roster. He'll likely serve in a bench role during his time with the team. Ian Happ (ribs) landed on the injured list in a corresponding move.

Cubs' Nick Martini: Gets MiLB deal from Cubs
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Martini signed a minor-league contract with the Cubs on Jan. 2, Chris Hilburn-Trenkle of Baseball America reports.

A native of Crystal Lake, Ill., Martini will continue his career with his hometown organization after he spent the 2020 campaign with the Phillies. Though he was a member of Philadelphia's 60-man roster pool throughout the 60-game MLB season, the 30-year-old outfielder never earned a callup from the alternate training site. He'll likely need to perform well at Triple-A Iowa early on during the upcoming season to put himself in the mix for a promotion to the Cubs.

Phillies' Nick Martini: Part of 60-man pool
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Martini will be part of the Phillies' 60-man roster.

Martini was claimed off waivers by the Phillies in January and designated for assignment in February, but he stayed with the club as a non-roster invitee after clearing waivers a few days afterwards. He had just a .653 OPS through 109 plate appearances at the major-league level in 2019 and has an uphill battle to break camp with a deep positional group.

Phillies' Nick Martini: Clears waivers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Martini passed through waivers unclaimed Wednesday and will remain with the Phillies as a non-roster invitee, Matt Gelb of The Athletic reports.

Martini had been claimed off waivers twice earlier in the offseason but apparently wasn't wanted this time around. He'll still be fighting for a bench spot with the Phillies this spring, but that task just became considerably more difficult.

Phillies' Nick Martini: Designated for assignment again
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Martini was designated for assignment by the Phillies on Saturday.

The move sees Martini dropped from a 40-man roster for the third time this offseason, as he was designated for assignment by the Padres in November and the Reds in January. The outfielder owns a respectable .269/.372/.380 career slash line, but that's come in just 288 big-league plate appearances through his age-29 season, making him apparently worth claiming off waivers but not worth holding onto.

Phillies' Nick Martini: Claimed by Phillies
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Martini was claimed off waivers by the Phillies on Tuesday.

Martini played primarily in the minors last season, where he hit .328/.432/.482 with eight home runs and 42 RBI over 70 games with Triple-A Las Vegas. The 29-year-old has limited major-league experience, but it wouldn't be surprising to see him reach the majors at some point in 2020 to help provide depth. Odubel Herrera was designated for assignment to clear space on the 40-man roster for Martini.

Reds' Nick Martini: DFA'd by Cincinnati
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Reds designated Martini for assignment Wednesday, Mark Sheldon of MLB.com reports.

Martini's removal from the 40-man roster clears a spot for Japanese import Shogo Akiyama, whom the Reds officially signed to a three-year, $21 million deal. Cincinnati had previously claimed Martini off waivers in November, after he was non-tendered by the Padres following a season in which he slashed .226/.330/.323 across 109 plate appearances between San Diego and Oakland.

Reds' Nick Martini: Claimed by Reds
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Martini was claimed off waivers by the Reds on Monday.

Martini was designated for assignment by the Padres on Wednesday. He'll fight for a spot on the Reds' roster in camp but is far from a lock to win one, as he's appeared in just 87 big-league games through his age-29 season.

November 20, 2019 08:48 PM
Padres' Nick Martini: Designated for assigment
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Martini was designated for assignment Wednesday.

This move allows the Padres to protect outfield prospect Jorge Ona from the Rule 5 draft. Martini had a .226 average and one home run in 93 at-bats last year.

Padres' Nick Martini: Sitting Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Martini is not in Sunday's lineup against the Diamondbacks.

Martini was swinging a hot bat earlier this month but is just 3-for-28 (.107) over his last 10 games. Wil Myers is starting in left field and hitting second.

Padres' Nick Martini: Sitting vs. lefty
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Martini is not starting Thursday against the Dodgers.

Martini will head to the bench for Thursday's series finale with lefty Clayton Kershaw toeing the rubber for the Dodgers. Josh Naylor is starting in left field and hitting second in his place.

Padres' Nick Martini: Retreats to bench
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire
