Cardinals | Carlos Martinez sent down

The St. Louis Cardinals optioned P Carlos Martinez to Triple-A Memphis, presumably to return to a starting role. RP Victor Marte was recalled from Memphis.

Fantasy Tip: There is still no announcement as to who will take Thursday's start. It's possible the team could use a spot starter or a bullpen start and not call up Michael Wacha at this time. The Super Two deadline is still a couple weeks away, and Wacha has only pitched professionally for one calendar year. Martinez would need 2-3 weeks to stretch out enough to come up and start. If that happens, he'd be a very intriguing option in all formats.
