There was no outlook written for Nick Martini in 2022. Check out the latest news below for more on his current fantasy value.
$Signed a one-year contract with the Cubs in January of 2021.
Headed for KBO

December 16, 2021
Martini agreed in principle Thursday to a contract with the NC Dinos of the Korea Baseball Organization, Jim Bulley of the Korea Joongang Daily reports.
ANALYSIS
Given the uncertainty of the 2022 MLB season in addition to the fact that he would likely have to settle for a minor-league deal if he stayed stateside, the 31-year-old outfielder will instead opt for some greater financial security by heading overseas. Over parts of three seasons in the big leagues spent with the Athletics, Padres and Cubs, Martini owns a respectable .270/.369/.369 slash line across 333 plate appearances.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2020
2019
A knee injury sidelined Martini for the first two months of the season, preventing him from building on the small-sample promise he showed in his rookie campaign in 2018. He was sent to the minors once healthy and only appeared in six big-league games for the Athletics before being waived in late August. The Padres picked him up and gave him 96 plate appearances down the stretch, in which he hit a modest .244/.344/.317. He did manage a much better .328/.432/.482 line for Triple-A Las Vegas, though it's hard to get excited about a 29-year-old's work in the minors. He's at least hit righties well in his limited big-league action, posting a .297/.395/.420 line over 256 plate appearances. Martini was claimed off waivers twice this offseason; first by the Reds and then by the Phillies. It seems more likely than not that he gets optioned to Triple-A to wait as depth in case injuries strike the big-league roster.
Martini joined the Athletics as an unheralded 27-year-old on a minor-league contract last offseason. Following a hot start at Triple-A Nashville, the outfielder went on to win a role on the strong side of a platoon in the big leagues over the summer, hitting an impressive .296/.397/.414 in 179 plate appearances (only 11 of those were against southpaws). He may fill a similar role at the start of this season, though there are reasons to be skeptical of his ability to repeat his performance. His line was propped up by a .379 BABIP, and his expected batting average according to Statcast was a mediocre .260. His batting average will have to remain high for him to be a fantasy asset, as he doesn't do much else. He's never hit more than eight homers in a season throughout his professional career and has never stolen more than 11 bases.
