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 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.

Padres' Nick Martini: Designated for assigment
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Martini was designated for assignment Wednesday.

Padres' Nick Martini: Not in Wednesday's lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Martini is not in the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Brewers.

Martini was in line to get just his second day off of the month Tuesday before being added to the lineup in place of an injured Wil Myers. However, it turns out that absence will come Wednesday instead, as Myers is ready to rejoin the starting nine. Martini piled up 15 hits over his first 12 games of the month, but he seems due for a break after going 0-for-10 over the last three days.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Padres' Nick Martini: Extends hitting streak in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Martini went 3-for-5 with a run scored in Monday's loss to the Cubs.

Martini singled three times to extend his hitting streak to eight games. Over that span, he has batted .382 (13-for-34) while taking over as San Diego's primary left fielder. The 29-year-old has never hit for much power, but he did show an affinity for swinging the bat in the minors this season, posting a .328 average in 70 games with Triple-A Las Vegas.

Padres' Nick Martini: Serving as primary left fielder
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Martini will start in left field and bat second Sunday against the Rockies.

Martini has drawn seven of the Padres' last eight starts in left field and looks like he'll continue garnering regular playing time against right-handed pitching in September. He's gone 9-for-25 with two runs and an RBI since being scooped up off waivers from the Athletics.

Padres' Nick Martini: Collects two hits in first SD start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Martini went 2-for-4 with a pair of singles in a victory over the Giants on Saturday.

Martini started in left field and batted second in the order in his first start since being picked up off waivers by San Diego on Wednesday. The 26-year-old entered the game with only one hit in 12 at-bats in the majors this season, though he did slash .328/.432/.482 in 70 games at the Triple-A level. Martini figures to be in line for additional opportunities against right-handed pitchers in September as the Padres seek to evaluate their roster for next season.

Padres' Nick Martini: Scooped by Padres
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Martini was claimed off waivers by the Padres on Wednesday, Jon Heyman of MLB Network reports.

Martini spent most of the season with Triple-A Las Vegas, slashing .328/.432/.482 in 70 games, before being designated for assignment by Oakland. The 29-year-old owns a respectable .282/.385/.411 slash line across 192 major-league plate appearances (61 games), so he could see some opportunities for the Padres down the stretch. He's slated to join San Diego ahead of Thursday's series opener in San Francisco.

August 26, 2019 03:12 PM
Athletics' Nick Martini: Designated for assignment
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Martini was designated for assignment by the Athletics on Monday, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

Martini played an important role for the A's down the stretch last season, slashing .296/.397/.414 across 55 games (37 starts), though he's appeared in just six games for Oakland this season, going 1-for-11 with a home run and 2:5 BB:K. The 29-year-old owns a solid .328/.432/.482 slash line across 70 games with Triple-A Las Vegas and could draw some interest on waivers given his recent big-league success. Seth Brown had his contract selected from Triple-A in a corresponding move.

Athletics' Nick Martini: Optioned to minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Martini was optioned to Triple-A Las Vegas on Wednesday.

Martini's first major-league action of 2019 was highlighted by a pinch-hit home run against the Cubs, but he failed to produce much outside of that, going 1-for-11 with five strikeouts. The 29-year-old will return to the Triple-A level, where he carries an on-base percentage of .435 with 36 RBI this season. The Athletics selected the contract of Corban Joseph, while Beau Taylor was designated for assignment in corresponding moves.
