Athletics' Nick Martini: Thriving at Triple-A level
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Martini is slashing .344/.445/.476 with 13 doubles, four home runs, 33 RBI, 34 walks and 35 runs across 229 plate appearances with Triple-A Las Vegas this season.

Martini is taking full advantage of the hitter-friendly conditions in the Pacific Coast League, generating what qualify as career-best numbers when factoring out a couple of professional stops where he's logged under 100 plate appearances. The 29-year-old finally got a big-league shot last season and acquitted himself very well, slashing .296/.397/.414 across 179 plate appearances over 55 games. Martini has limited power, however, and he's now of advanced age as far as minor-league prospects are concerned. Tellingly, Martini has remained with the Aviators even with Stephen Piscotty (knee) on the injured list, and it remains to be seen if he'll be rewarded with a promotion at some point this season.

Athletics' Nick Martini: Activated, optioned to Las Vegas
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Athletics activated Martini (knee) off the injured list Tuesday and optioned him to Triple-A Las Vegas, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

Martini's extensive stay on the injured list, which dated back to March 19, stemmed from a Feb. 26 collision with an outfield wall back in spring camp. The 28-year-old hit an impressive .302 with 10 RBI over 12 minor-league rehab games and will now look to make his mark with the Aviators. Martini slashed a solid .296/.397/.414 across 179 plate appearances in 2018 with the Athletics, so a promotion at some point this season is certainly possible.

Athletics' Nick Martini: Still playing well in rehab
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Martini (knee) is 5-for-18 with five RBI, three walks and three runs over his last five games with Triple-A Las Vegas.

Martini has driven in a run in each of those contests and has hit .300 over 10 rehab games overall. The 28-year-old is likely physically ready for activation at this point, but it remains to be seen exactly when the Athletics will opt to pull the trigger on the move.

Athletics' Nick Martini: Playing in rehab games
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Martini (knee) has gone 4-for-12 with three walks, one strikeout and three RBI in four rehab games with Triple-A Las Vegas.

Martini started in left field and led off Monday against Tacoma. He singled in three trips before being removed prior to the start of the eighth inning. The A's will probably want to see him log several full games in the field before they consider reinstating Martini to the big-league roster.

Athletics' Nick Martini: Set to step up activity
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Martini (knee/back) is set to run the bases Tuesday, Jake Crouse of MLB.com reports.

It's been a long road back for Martini, who originally injured his knee back in late February. If all goes well with Tuesday's activity, Martini is expected to embark on a rehab assignment shortly thereafter.

Athletics' Nick Martini: Takes batting practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Martini (knee) took batting practice for the second straight day Tuesday, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

Martini is working his way back from a knee sprain he suffered when crashing into the outfield wall in late February. He's close to getting into game action but will need to complete more baserunning drills first.

Athletics' Nick Martini: Expected to face pitching soon
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Martini (knee) is expected to face live pitching within the next week or two, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

Martini resumed baseball activities about a week ago and has started a full run of progression, but he's apparently not going to be ready to resume playing in games until May. Because he was shut down for all of spring training due to the sprained right knee, Martini will require several rehab games before the Athletics activate him from the 10-day injured list. The 28-year-old isn't certain to have a spot on the active roster waiting for him once he's reinstated.

Athletics' Nick Martini: Performing all baseball activities
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Martini (knee) is performing all baseball activities according to manager Bob Melvin, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

Martini's regimen includes running the bases and hitting in the batting cage, implying that he could be nearing a rehab assignment. The 28-year-old originally suffered his knee sprain after colliding with the outfield wall in an early spring game against the Angels. He was placed on the injured list March 19, and the A's might not have a regular spot for him in their major-league outfield whenever he's ready for activation.

Athletics' Nick Martini: Lands on injured list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Martini (knee) was placed on the 10-day injured list Tuesday.

Martini's initial timeline put his return at the end of March, so it's no real surprise the Athletics moved him to the injured list ahead of the season-opening series against the Mariners in Japan. The 28-year-old is recovering from a right knee sprain sustained in late February and it remains unclear if he is still on track with the original recovery timeline.

Athletics' Nick Martini: Out until late March
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Martini (knee) will be sidelined for roughly a month from when the injury happened on Feb. 26, Julian McWilliams of The Athletic reports.

This timeline suggests Martini may be able to return in the final week of March, but even then, he won't have time to get ready for Opening Day. A host of players are competing for that open left field spot in the short term, but it will probably end up being a platoon of some sort until Martini is ready.

Athletics' Nick Martini: Working back from knee sprain
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Martini (knee) is resuming cardio work, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

Martini suffered a hyperextended back and a knee sprain after crashing into the wall in February. He has only two weeks to make it back for the Athletics' season opener against the Mariners in Japan on March 20.

February 28, 2019 11:48 AM
Athletics' Nick Martini: Shut down with knee sprain
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Martini has a right knee sprain and will be out for a couple of weeks, Julian McWilliams of The Athletic reports.

The Athletics have less than two weeks remaining for spring training games, as they travel to Japan to face the Mariners on March 20-21 for the regular-season opener. It's unlikely Martini will be up to speed for that series, though he could potentially be ready to go when the bulk of the regular season begins in late March. Martini was reportedly battling both back and knee issues after crashing into the outfield wall Tuesday, but the knee injury seems to be the more concerning one at the moment.

Athletics' Nick Martini: Undergoing MRI
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Martini has a stiff back and knee and will undergo an MRI on Wednesday, John Shea of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

Martini suffered the injuries after colliding with the wall in Tuesday's game against the Angels. He's expected to miss at least a few days, which could become a longer absence depending on the results of the MRI.

February 26, 2019 07:04 PM
Athletics' Nick Martini: Diagnosed with hyperextended back
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Martini was diagnosed with a hyperextended back Tuesday, John Shea of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

Martini suffered the injury after tripping over his shoe while trying to make a play down the left-field line during Tuesday's game against the Angels. He went for X-rays, though the results aren't yet known. Martini should be considered day-to-day for now; manager Bob Melvin thinks he's OK, but the A's will wait until his test results are known before moving forward with the outfielder.

Athletics' Nick Martini: Exits after colliding with wall
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Martini was removed from Tuesday's game against the Angels after crashing into the outfield wall during the sixth inning, Julian McWilliams of The Athletic reports.

Martini immediately went down and was tended to by trainers and manager Bob Melvin. He was ultimately able to walk off the field, giving way to Skye Bolt in left field. Martini should be considered day-to-day until he's further evaluated.

Athletics' Nick Martini: On bench Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Martini is not starting Saturday against the Angels, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

As he typically does against lefties, Martini will head to the bench against Tyler Skaggs. Mark Canha will start in left field in his absence.

September 26, 2018 01:24 PM
Athletics' Nick Martini: Smacks three hits, drives in two
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Martini went 3-for-6 with two RBI, two runs scored and three strikeouts in Tuesday's extra-innings loss to the Mariners.

Martini brought home a pair of runs with a triple in the second inning and came around to score later in the frame. The 28-year-old has been locked into a strong-side platoon role and is hitting a scorching .415/.500/.561 over 41 at-bats since returning to the big leagues Sept. 9.

September 24, 2018 06:37 PM
Athletics' Nick Martini: Sits against southpaw
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Martini is not in the lineup Monday against the Mariners, Greg Johns of MLB.com reports.

Martini will find his usual seat on the bench with a left-hander in James Paxton starting for the Mariners. Mark Canha gets the nod in left field Monday, hitting sixth.

Athletics' Nick Martini: First career homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Martini went 3-for-6 with a two-run home run and three runs scored Thursday against the Angels.

Martini took Francisco Arcia deep in the seventh inning to record his first career home run. At the time of his homer, the Athletics were up 18-2, explaining Martini's at-bat against the Angels' catcher. This offensive outburst aside, Martini has an impressive .391 on-base percentage across 129 at-bats, which has translated to 23 runs scored.

September 18, 2018 06:08 PM
Athletics' Nick Martini: Day off Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Martini is not in the lineup Tuesday against the Angels, Jane Lee of MLB.com reports.

Martini sits after starting five of the last seven games, hitting .467 with a 1.112 OPS over that stretch. Mark Canha will start in left field in his place.
