Cardinals | Carlos Martinez in limbo

St. Louis Cardinals P Carlos Martinez will remain in the team's bullpen for the next seven to 10 days, according to general manager John Mozeliak. The GM said that the organization has to get him into a rotation by then if they want to keep him stretched out to start. The Cardinals don't need a fifth starter until July 27, so if they don't use him then, he'll likely be sent down.

Fantasy Tip: It sounds like Martinez is in consideration for that start. Fantasy owners should monitor him and consider picking him up in deep leagues if that's the case. Michael Wacha, whom Langosch reports was named Pacific Coast League Top Star in the Triple-A All-Star Game, has to be a candidate as well, though.
