Cardinals | Carlos Martinez promoted

The St. Louis Cardinals purchased the contract of SP Carlos Martinez from Double-A Springfield. RP Mitchell Boggs was optioned to Triple-A Memphis.

Fantasy Tip: Martinez was 1-0 with a 2.31 ERA in three short starts at Double-A. He totaled 11 2/3 innings in those three starts. The Cards have a tendency to call up their top arms to give them experience in the bullpen. This is likely the case with Martinez because the rotation has been stellar. He has a lot of long-term fantasy value, but probably none right now.
