RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2018

Subscribe now to see our 2018 outlook.

2017

Prior to being traded to the Cardinals in May, Martinez started the season with the Royals, where he'd been playing at Triple-A Omaha. Upon joining the Cardinals, he put up a modest .269/.326/.415 line over 87 games at Triple-A Memphis. Once September came around, he made his way up to the majors for the first time in his career. That cup of coffee offered nothing to suggest the need for him to see more playing time. On the other hand, Martinez is capable of performing at the Triple-A level, where he owns a .324/.392/.483 career line, even though his numbers dipped slightly with Memphis in 2016. Look for him to stick around as organizational depth, but it would be a surprise if the Cards are forced to use Martinez in a prominent role this season. If he does land a chance, though, there are tiny hints of potential help with home runs and stolen bases in deep leagues.
