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.

The St. Louis Cardinals placed SP Jake Westbrook (back) on the 15-day disabled list with a lower back strain Friday, Aug. 23, and recalled SP Carlos Martinez from Triple-A Memphis in a corresponding move. Martinez will be used in relief and SP Tyler Lyons will move into Westbrook's rotation spot to start Monday, Aug. 26. The team doesn't think the injury will keep Westbrook out for the rest of the season. He had allowed 30 earned runs in 26 innings in his last five starts.
Fantasy Tip: Lyons will become an option for mixed leaguers looking for some pitching help.
