Cardinals | Carlos Martinez stepping up

Wed, 09 Jul 2014 08:59:28 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals SP Carlos Martinez recorded a season-high six innings Tuesday, July 8, and the Cards are 5-0 in his five starts this year. Manager Mike Matheny said Martinez's delivery was smooth and that the right-hander's sinker looked on point. He pointed out Martinez looked better because he wasn't trying to reach triple digits on his fastball.

Fantasy Tip: Martinez is finding his groove, but hopefully he'll keep his rotation spot after the trade deadline. Grab him wherever you can. Jake Peavy or whoever else St. Louis may acquire would bump Joe Kelly or Tyler Lyons. Shelby Miller may actually be at risk if they seek outside SP help.
