Cardinals | Carlos Martinez optioned, Michael Blazek recalled

St. Louis Cardinals P Carlos Martinez has been optioned to Triple-A Memphis. The move clears a spot for RP Michael Blazek, who has been promoted from Memphis.

Fantasy Tip: Martinez has had mixed results in short major league stretches, and the Cards probably don't care to keep him around for too long if they're not going to use him as more than bullpen depth. He remains a good bet to have an impact in 2014, but St. Louis could once again use one of their prized pitchers in a relief role to indoctrinate him then. Still, Martinez is a superb talent and worth monitoring or stashing.
