2018

2017

Martinez surprised many with a hot start to the 2015 season, although he fizzled out by the end of that campaign. Unfortunately for the 26-year-old and the Rangers alike, there was really no bright spot during his tenure in the big leagues in 2016. The right-hander began the season in the minor leagues, where he did find some success with his excellent control (1.55 BB/9), which helped him to a sound FIP (3.46). This performance afforded him some a few spot starts and some bullpen appearances with Texas throughout the season, but the results were not pretty: 5.59 ERA, 1.66 WHIP, 16:19 K:BB, and eight homers allowed in 38.2 innings. To make matters worse, these are the numbers he put up while allowing a below-average .285 BABIP. The Rangers' rotation is pretty thin behind Cole Hamels and Yu Darvish, but until Martinez can miss a few more bats and keep the ball in the park, he'll likely be relegated to a Quad-A swingman role with the ceiling of a long reliever.

2016

Martinez started the year on an improbable 4-0 start with a 1.96 ERA over his first 55 innings (nine starts) despite a poor 30:17 K:BB ratio, including seven quality starts. As one would expect, that type of season wasn't sustainable over the long-haul given his continued poor peripherals, and his struggles led to several trips back and forth to Triple-A Round Rock, with just seven wins in 21 starts to go along with a poor 77:46 K:BB rate in 115.0 innings. His major-league career now consists of 265.1 IP, 285 hits allowed, 101 walks and just 154 Ks. There's no room for him in a healthy Texas rotation, though he may start the year as a starter if Yu Darvish isn't able to answer the bell on Opening Day. You'll want no part of Martinez, however.

2015

Hey, a middling arm that the Rangers had to rely on much more than they couldíve possibly envisioned before 2014, thatís weirdÖ they only had 126 of those last year. Fifteen different pitchers made at least one start for the Rangers and Martinezís 24 were actually second-most. Now do you understand how the Rangers ended up with the worst record in the American League and third-worst overall? For his part, Martinez acquitted himself well enough with a 4.55 ERA, but there was nothing special about it. He didnít strike anyone out, he walked too many, and he was quite lucky to escape with that ERA. He was destroyed at home (5.24 ERA) thanks to some horrid supporting stats (12.5% strikeout rate, 1.4 K:BB ratio), while somehow escaping with a 4.09 ERA on the road despite almost identical strikeout and walk numbers (12.7%, 1.4). He is penciled in for a starting role again in 2015, but he neednít be considered for your team regardless of league format.
