RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2017

Subscribe now to see our 2017 outlook.

2016

Martinez got a cup of coffee with the Indians at the end of the 2015 season but spent most of his season at Triple-A Columbus, hitting .289/.344/.424 with 24 doubles and five homers in 102 games. The 32-year old journeyman can handle the outfield as well as second and third base defensively, utility which has earned him some short looks in parts of five years at the big league level with the Phillies, Pirates and Indians. He's a career .187/.235/.256 hitter in the big leagues and may have a hard time finding a gig now that he's arbitration eligible. He didn't have much of a future in the Cleveland organization and the team predictably outrighted him off the 40-man roster. He rejected a subsequent minor league assignment and opted for free agency, where he'll presumably look for a situation with a better chance of cracking someone's bench in a reserve role.

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.
