The Guardians reinstated Martinez (hand) from the 60-day injured list and optioned him to Triple-A Columbus on Wednesday.
ANALYSIS
Martinez was protected from the Rule 5 Draft following the 2022 season and was added to the Guardians' 40-man roster, but he's still waiting to make his MLB debut. He wasn't a serious candidate to break camp with the big club, and any outside chance he might have had to crack the Opening Day roster came to an end when he suffered a right foot contusion late in spring training. Martinez then suffered a more significant injury when he began a rehab assignment in April, as he fractured the hamate bone in his left hand during his third game with Columbus. After being shut down for the ensuing six weeks, Martinez started up a new rehab assignment in the rookie-level Arizona Complex League last week and is now ready to report to Columbus, where he should play on an everyday basis.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2023
2021
Martinez does not hit the ball as hard as we would like, but he makes excellent swing decisions for a 20-year-old switch hitter with experience at Double-A. He slashed .278/.378/.471 with a 17.5 K%, 12.0 BB%, 13 home runs and 23 doubles in 101 games between High-A and Double-A. An above-average runner, Martinez went 12-for-19 on stolen-base attempts last season. He primarily played second base at Double-A and saw time at shortstop and third base in the Arizona Fall League. Martinez would benefit from a trade to an organization with less depth, as it is hard to envision him debuting as anything more than a utility infielder with Cleveland. He is already on the 40-man roster, but Martinez is entering his age-21 season, so there is time for him to build upon the .207 ISO he posted in a small sample at Double-A.
The top data point for Martinez is still the impressive 56-game run he had in the Dominican Summer League in 2019. However, reports from the fall instructional league were positive and it seems like this could be a prospect with few flaws. The switch-hitting shortstop walked as much as he struck out in the DSL, showing a strong hit tool and plus speed on the bases. He is well built and athletic, so he won't get the bat knocked out of his hands in the upper levels, yet his speed should age well. We have yet to see the 6-foot Martinez tap into notable over-the-fence power, but he could start showing double-digit homer pop by the time he gets to Double-A or Triple-A. If everything breaks right, Martinez could play every day up the middle while batting first or second in Cleveland's lineup. He is three-plus years away from the majors.
