Cardinals' Carlos Martinez to pitch on Thursday

by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(3/2/15) Cardinals pitcher Carlos Martinez will get the start on Thursday against the Marlins, according to MLB.com.

Martinez is expected to throw around 40 pitches during the start. The club is hoping Martinez goes two innings. Martinez prepared for the start by throwing two simulated innings against the Cardinals on Monday. Martinez, who is competing for the fifth spot in the rotation, said he just needs to go out and perform. 

"I need to go out and perform," he said. "I'm going to keep focused and have the same mentality to do my best even though it's the first [start]. Every time I take the mound, I'm going to feel like it's the last one."

Martinez, 23, posted a 4.03 ERA over 89 1/3 innings last year. 

Cardinals' Martinez hoping maturity helps him earn a spot

by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(2/23/15) Cardinals pitcher Carlos Martinez is hoping his maturity will help him win a spot in the team's rotation, according to the Associated Press.

The 23-year-old Martinez has already been the talk of camp, and it has nothing to do with his pitching. "A year ago you'd just see a kid bounding around here. It's amazing the transformation," manager Mike Matheny said. "In general there's a whole different demeanor to him."

Martinez believes there's a reason for that. After getting some time in the rotation last year, Martinez pitched well in winter ball during the offseason. He believes that experience will help him this season. "What I want to let everyone know is that I do have a little more experience, and with experience comes a little maturity," he said. "I hope to build off of that."

Martinez seems to be the favorite for the team's fifth starter job, but he'll have to perform in order to win that role. "He's going to be given a lot of opportunities to win that spot, but he has to earn it," general manager John Mozeliak said.

Martinez posted a 4.03 ERA over 89 1/3 innings last year. 

Cardinals to discuss innings workload for Carlos Martinez

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(2/17/15) Cardinals pitcher Carlos Martinez, who is set to compete for a spot in the rotation this spring, showed up to the team's spring-training complex Monday morning to find his locker moved next to veteran catcher Yadier Molina.

The move was made at the suggestion of Molina, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.

"I thought it was a great idea," Cardinals manager Mike Matheny said. "Yadi is excited to have Carlos near him. Carlos is going to be the recipient of baseball talk."

While players aren't required to report to camp until later this week, Martinez is one of more than 20 Cardinals to report early, and most are participating in voluntary workouts. He finds himself battling for a rotation spot after spending much of his time with the major-league club in the bullpen, and Molina is primed to help him reach his goal.

"I’m going to have help from him, and it’s important I feel more comfortable around him now," Martinez said through a team official who assisted as translator. "It’s huge. I know I’m going to get a lot of advice."

Matheny said the team will meet later this week to discuss Martinez's workload in 2015. He threw 99 2/3 innings in 2014, with 50 of his 59 appearances coming in relief.

"We’re toying with the expected workload," Matheny said. "But first things first. He’s got to come in and win a job. He won’t have anything given to him."

In his most recent stint exclusively as a starter, Martinez went 5-3 with a 2.51 ERA and 63:27 K:BB ratio in 68 innings over 13 Triple-A starts in 2013. His competition this spring should include Marco Gonzales and Jaime Garcia.

Cardinals' Martinez will 'be ready' to compete for spot in rotation

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(1/19/15) Cardinals pitcher Carlos Martinez performed well in the Dominican winter league this offseason. The right-hander, who will compete for a spot in the Cardinals' rotation this spring, posted a 2.25 ERA with 26 strikeouts and just two talks in 24 innings (five starts). He even won three times, per MLB.com.

"I feel mentally, emotionally really good that I've had that chance to work real hard there and bring that to spring training," Martinez said. "I feel like, yes, this is my spot. I feel like I'm the pitcher I'm meant to be, and I have experience now. I'll be ready."

Martinez added he will dedicate "this year and every year" to fallen teammate and friend Oscar Taveras, who was killed in a car accident in October. Martinez will wear Taveras' No. 18.

"I spoke to [general manager] John Mozeliak, and I'm thankful they've given me the opportunity to wear it," Martinez said. "[Taveras] was a friend, a brother, and it's an honor for me to be able to wear it. I'll wear it for the rest of my career."

Mozeliak: Carlos Martinez will 'be given clean path' to rotation spot

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(11/18/14) Carlos Martinez appears to be a favorite for the final spot in the rotation following the trade of Shelby Miller, Cardinals general manager John Mozeliak indicated during an interview with MLB Network Radio on Tuesday.

"He'll be given a clean path to fifth spot, if he comes to spring training prepared," Mozeliak said.

Martinez spent most of the 2014 season in the Cardinals' bullpen, but he did make seven starts, going 2-1 with a 4.45 ERA. Overall, he was 2-4 with a 4.03 ERA in 57 appearances.
