RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2016

Subscribe now to see our 2016 outlook.

2013

Martinez missed the first two months of last season after breaking his foot during spring training. He saw limited action with the Phillies last season and barely hit when he was in the lineup. Martinez was outrighted off the 40-man roster this past winter and looks like a long shot to see any time in the majors this year.

2012

Martinez really had no business being in the majors last year but the Phillies kept the Rule 5 pick on their roster all season. Martinez was able to accumulate a significant number of at-bats thanks to the various injuries suffered by the Phillies' aging infielders. Martinez offers little pop or speed but is a decent defender. He's a nice utility player but nothing more. He'll compete for a bench job this spring.

2011

Martinez, who was selected in the Rule 5 draft by the Phillies this winter, hit .272/.312/.408 in 133 games between Double-A and Triple-A last season. Martinez is expected to get a long look for a bench job this spring. He'll be competing with veterans Wilson Valdez and Pete Orr.
