Cardinals | Carlos Martinez shuts down Pirates

Thu, 09 Jul 2015 20:43:20 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals SP Carlos Martinez allowed four hits and struck out eight over 7 1/3 scoreless innings in a win over the Pittsburgh Pirates Thursday, July 9.

Fantasy Tip: Martinez ($7,700, 15.4% of cap) is now 7-1 with a 1.20 ERA in his last 10 starts, and after being a high-risk, high-reward option at FantasyScore early in the season, he is now worth a look whenever he takes the mound.

Cardinals | Carlos Martinez is QS machine

Wed, 08 Jul 2015 18:08:23 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals SP Carlos Martinez is scheduled to start Thursday, July 9, against the Pittsburgh Pirates. He enters the contest with nine consecutive quality starts dating back to May 15. However, the last time he faced the Bucs on the road, back on May 9, he was lit up for a season-high seven runs, seven hits and four walks over 5 1/3 innings.

Fantasy Tip: Martinez ($7,700; or 15.4% of cap) has been a consistent contributor for FantasyScore players all season, but that woeful outing last time out in Pittsburgh means you should start him at your own risk.

Cardinals | Michael Wacha, Carlos Martinez make history

Mon, 29 Jun 2015 00:21:46 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals SP Michael Wacha and SP Carlos Martinez each have at least nine wins through the first 75 games of the season. Martinez (9-3) and Wacha (10-3) are the first duo aged 23 or younger with nine or more wins at this point since Dwight Gooden and Sid Fernandez for the 1986 New York Mets.

Fantasy Tip: The Cardinals were supposed to fold without Adam Wainwright, but Wacha ($8,400, 16.8% of cap) and Martinez ($7,200, 14.4% of cap) are part of the reason this team has a 51-24 record. These two are must-plays in FantasyScore and pretty much every other fantasy format.

Cardinals | Carlos Martinez feeling fine

Wed, 24 Jun 2015 22:09:43 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals SP Carlos Martinez (shoulder) felt good Wednesday, June 24, just one day after being hit on the pitching shoulder with a fastball while batting Tuesday, June 23. "It looked bad at the time," manager Mike Matheny said.

Fantasy Tip: Martinez ($7,200; or 14.4% of cap) should be fine for his next scheduled start, so FantasyScore owners will want to use him. He is 5-1 with a 1.33 ERA over his past seven starts.

Cardinals | Carlos Martinez continues strong run

Tue, 23 Jun 2015 19:06:11 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals SP Carlos Martinez struck out nine batters through seven innings while allowing three earned runs over eight hits and a walk during the Cardinals' 4-3 win over the Miami Marlins Tuesday, June 23.

Fantasy Tip: Martinez ($7,200, 14.4% of cap) has allowed three earned runs or fewer in seven consecutive starts and gone 5-2 over the run. He currently sports a 2.89 ERA and 1.26 WHIP with 94 strikeouts over 87 1/3 innings for the season. The 23-year-old righty has emerged as a reliable arm in all fantasy formats, and he is pushing towards consideration as a fringe No. 1 fake starter, too.

Cardinals | Carlos Martinez has been dominant

Tue, 23 Jun 2015 10:21:59 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals SP Carlos Martinez has a 0.89 ERA with 42 strikeouts in 40 1/3 innings in his last six starts, and he's given up two runs or fewer in each of those outings. Right-handed hitters are batting merely .186 against him and making hard contact just 6% of the time. Only two right-handed hitters have homered off Martinez in 2015. Most of his success this year has been attributed to his willingness and effectiveness in busting hitters inside. However, Martinez also throws his slider to the outside edge less often than most pitchers in baseball.

Fantasy Tip: Martinez ($7,200, 14.4% of cap) is pretty much a lock as one of your starting pitchers on FantasyScore this evening. Not only will he be tossing in the pitching-friendly confines in Miami, but the Fish rank 26th in OPS against right-handers this year (.664).

Fantasy Tip: Martinez ($7,200; or 14.4% of cap) has been electric for FantasyScore owners, and he has four victories over his past five starts. Keep rolling with him until he starts to cool off significantly.
