Diamondbacks' Corbin Martin: Shifts to 45-day IL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Martin (elbow) was transferred to the 45-day injured list Friday.

The 24-year-old is working his way back from Tommy John surgery in July 2019, and an oblique strain in August also impacted his progress. Martin will continue his rehab work in hopes of being ready to go for spring training in 2021.

Diamondbacks' Corbin Martin: Not likely this season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Diamondbacks general manager Mike Hazen said Martin (elbow) isn't expected to join the team in 2020, Nick Piecoro of the Arizona Republic reports.

Martin, who is working his way back from last July's Tommy John surgery, suffered an oblique strain earlier this month. The GM said the time needed for Martin and fellow injured pitcher Jon Duplantier (elbow) to ramp up for an appearance make pitching in 2020 unlikely.

Diamondbacks' Corbin Martin: Suffers oblique strain
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Martin (elbow) will be shut down for a couple weeks after suffering an oblique strain, Steve Gilbert of reports.

The 24-year-old is working his way back from Tommy John surgery last July, but his buildup will be interrupted due to the oblique strain. Martin figured to be a candidate to see the big leagues sometime in September, but that now appears unlikely since he won't be reevaluated for a few weeks.

Diamondbacks' Corbin Martin: Throws three innings
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Martin (elbow) threw three innings and about 50 pitches in an outing at Arizona's alternate camp, Nick Piecoro of the Arizona Republic reports.

Martin's fastball velocity reportedly lived in the 92-95 MPH range. The right-hander, one of the players acquired from Houston in the Zack Greinke trade, underwent Tommy John surgery last July.

Diamondbacks' Corbin Martin: Heads to IL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Diamondbacks placed Martin (elbow) on the 10-day injured list Wednesday.

The Diamondbacks likely aren't counting on Martin being a major contributor in 2020 after he underwent Tommy John surgery last July, but the fact that he was included in the 60-man player pool at least implies that his rehab is going according to plan. He'll likely be a top candidate to shift to the 45-day IL at some point later this season in the event the Diamondbacks need to open up a spot on the 40-man roster.

Diamondbacks' Corbin Martin: Part of 60-man roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Martin (elbow) will be a part of the Diamondbacks' 60-man summer camp.

Martin is less than a year removed from Tommy John surgery, so his invite to camp will likely just allow him to work on his throwing program in the short term. Should all go well for the right-hander, Martin could factor in the mix down the road in August or September.

Diamondbacks' Corbin Martin: Traded to Arizona
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Martin (elbow) was traded from the Astros to the Diamondbacks along with J.B. Bukauskas and two other prospects in exchange for Zack Greinke, Jon Heyman of MLB Network reports.

Corbin underwent Tommy John surgery in early July and could miss the entire 2020 season, but he gives the Diamondbacks a potential mid-rotation starter a couple years down the road. The 23-year-old righty logged a 5.59 ERA in five MLB starts, but had a 3.13 ERA, 1.37 WHIP and 45 strikeouts in 37.1 innings at Triple-A.

Astros' Corbin Martin: Out after Tommy John surgery
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Martin (elbow) underwent Tommy John surgery Wednesday, Chandler Rome of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Martin went for a second opinion on his injured right elbow this week but was unable to avoid the dreaded surgery. The 23-year-old will be out the remainder of this season and will likely miss the bulk of the 2020 season, as well. Martin received his first taste of the majors earlier this year and had a 5.59 ERA, 1.81 WHIP and 19:12 K:BB in five starts.

Astros' Corbin Martin: Second opinion on tap
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

General manager Jeff Luhnow said Sunday that Martin is slated to receive a second opinion on his injured right elbow later this week, Brian McTaggart of reports. "I don't think he's going to be pitching any time soon," Luhnow said of Martin.

The Astros will wait until the results of the second opinion are available before deciding on Martin's next step, but the 23-year-old's absence seems likely to extend through the end of July. After an underwhelming stint in Houston earlier this season, Martin gave up nine runs on 19 hits and six walks in 12 innings with Triple-A Round Rock before being shut down and placed on the 7-day injured list.

Astros' Corbin Martin: Out with elbow injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Martin sustained a potentially serious elbow injury during Sunday's start for Triple-A Round Rock and was placed on the minor-league injured list, Brian McTaggart of reports.

Martin allowed three runs over four innings during the start and exited after throwing 78 pitches. The specifics of the issue are currently unclear but more information should be available after the 23-year-old is evaluated in Houston.

Astros' Corbin Martin: Needs to fix flaw
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Martin, who was optioned to Triple-A Round Rock on Tuesday, has a mechanical flaw in his delivery he'll address while in the minors, Chandler Rome of the Houston Chronicle reports. "It's frustrating," Martin said after a start Monday. "I know what I'm doing wrong and not fixing it right now. We'll get into it, and it'll come. I know that."

Martin is flying open on his delivery, leaving his right arm behind the lower half of his body and thereby allowing the fastball to leak to his arm side. This has resulted in Martin consistently falling behind batters and digging himself a hole, a disturbing trend most recently illustrated when he threw just 42 of 76 pitches for strikes in each of his last two starts. Those struggles have led to Martin's removal from the big-league rotation for the time being and Framber Valdez being tabbed as his replacement beginning with a start this coming Saturday against the Orioles. "Not even really approach as much as execution," manager AJ Hinch said. "You have to throw the ball in the vicinity where you want and attack the strike zone. He's a strike thrower and always has been in his pro career. It's important for him to do that."

Astros' Corbin Martin: Sent to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Martin was optioned to Triple-A Round Rock on Tuesday, Chandler Rome of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Martin didn't fare well in Monday's start against the Mariners, as he surrendered two runs on four hits and three walks while fanning three over three innings of work. As a result, he's been banished to the minor leagues, opening up a spot on the 25-man roster for Reymin Guduan.

Astros' Corbin Martin: Shaky again in no-decision
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Martin gave up two earned runs on four hits over three innings in a no-decision in the Astros' 4-2 win over the Mariners on Monday. He struck out three and walked three.

Martin struggled with his efficiency in this start, issuing three free passes, giving up two solo homers and throwing 76 pitches before getting chased from the contest after just three innings. That's been a recurring theme for the 23-year-old, as he hasn't made it to the five-inning threshold since his first start of the season on May 12. Martin is now sporting a 5.59 ERA, a 1.81 WHIP and a 19:12 K:BB through 19.1 innings. He's been shaky but there aren't any obvious options at the Astros' disposal to take his rotation spot at the moment, so he should keep a hold on it for the time being.

Astros' Corbin Martin: Hit hard in no-decision
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Martin didn't factor into the decision in Tuesday's 9-6 win over the Cubs, giving up three solo home runs among five hits over 3.2 innings. He struck out four and walked three.

The rookie was shaky once again, failing to get past the fourth inning for the third straight start and doubling the number of long balls he's served up in the majors. Martin now carries a 5.51 ERA and 16:9 K:BB through his first 16.1 innings with the Astros, but with fellow top prospects Forrest Whitley and J.B. Bukauskas also struggling in the minors, the club may have to consider looking outside the organization if they want to replace Martin in the rotation.

Astros' Corbin Martin: Charged with loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Martin (1-1) took the loss against the White Sox on Thursday, throwing just 3.1 innings while surrendering four runs (three earned) on six hits and a walk with three strikeouts.

It was Martin's third and shortest major-league start. The right-hander looked strong through the first two frames but soon fell apart in the third, falling victim to a trio of hits, including two doubles and a walk. He then committed a costly throwing error to hand the White Sox a 3-0 lead. Martin was finally pulled in the fourth with one out after allowing a solo home run to Eloy Jimenez and a single to Yolmer Sanchez, but ultimately the Astros could not recover as they fell victim to Lucas Giolito's complete-game shutout. The 23-year-old now holds a 4.97 ERA and 1.58 WHIP as he gears up to face the Cubs at Minute Maid Park on Tuesday.

Astros' Corbin Martin: Can't find plate against BoSox
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Martin didn't factor into the decision in Saturday's 7-3 win over the Red Sox, giving up three runs (two earned) on five hits and four walks over four-plus innings. He failed to strike out a batter.

The rookie's second big-league start did not go as smoothly as his first, as he threw only 38 of 74 pitches for strikes and gave up hits to the first two batters he faced in the fifth inning before being bailed out by Josh James. Martin will next take the mound Thursday, at home against the White Sox, but if he continues to struggle with his control the Astros have plenty of other rotation options they could use to replace the 23-year-old.

Astros' Corbin Martin: Gets win in debut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Martin (1-0) gave up two runs on three hits and one walk while striking out nine through 5.1 innings Sunday, earning the win over the Rangers.

Martin only allowed a solo home run before walking Shin-Soo Choo to start the sixth inning and being pulled after 80 pitches. Collin McHugh allowed the runner to score, but the Astros provided 15 runs of support to ensure the first win of Martin's career. Martin will make his next start Saturday at the Red Sox.

Astros' Corbin Martin: Called up ahead of MLB debut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Astros officially selected Martin's contract from Triple-A Round Rock ahead of his scheduled start Sunday against the Rangers, Chandler Rome of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Jose Altuve (hamstring) was moved to the 10-day injured list to open up a spot on the active roster for Martin, who will assume the struggling Collin McHugh's rotation spot. Martin's stay with Houston will likely be dictated by how well he performs in his first taste of the big leagues, but expectations are fairly high for the 23-year-old right-hander. Regarded as one of Houston's top pitching prospects heading into the season, Martin validated that status by compiling a 1.48 ERA and 28 strikeouts over 24.1 innings with Round Rock.

Astros' Corbin Martin: Major-league debut on tap
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Martin is expected to have his contract purchased from Triple-A Round Rock and make his big-league debut Sunday against the Rangers, Jake Kaplan of The Athletic reports.

Martin will start in place of the struggling Collin McHugh and could have the chance to stick around should he impress in his first start. The 26-year-old has a 2.31 ERA in 179 career minor-league innings, striking out 27.5 percent of opposing batters while walking 7.9 percent. He projects as a future mid-rotation starter with average command, an above-average changeup and a plus slider.

Astros' Corbin Martin: Another strong outing
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Martin threw 4.1 scoreless innings in relief Thursday against the Dodgers' Triple-A affiliate Oklahoma City. He struck out six while allowing a hit and two walks.

Most of Martin's appearances have come as a starter, but this was a planned relief appearance. Through 20.1 innings so far with Triple-A Round Rock he has a 1.33 ERA and 1.00 WHIP, with a 25:10 K:BB.
