Cardinals | More on Carlos Martinez call-up

St. Louis Cardinals P Carlos Martinez was promoted from Triple-A Memphis on Thursday, July 11, and is available to pitch in relief immediately. RP Seth Maness threw 48 pitches on Wednesday, July 10, in the club's contest against the Chicago Cubs, and RP Edward Mujica has appeared in six straight contests.

Fantasy Tip: The Cards are still committed to Martinez as a starter, his role at Memphis, and he may be an option to them after the break, eventually, in that capacity. But the bullpen is heavily taxed, and Martinez probably made the most sense in the short term. Mujica would seem to be unavailable today, so perhaps Trevor Rosenthal would receive a save opportunity if it arises.
