Cardinals SP Carlos Martinez struggles in no-decision on Thursday
|by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer|
|(7/30/15) Cardinals young starter Carlos Martinez endured a rough outing against the Rockies on Thursday. The right-hander allowed five runs on 10 hits over five innings. He struck out six and did not walk a batter. He was left with a no-decision, as the Cardinals won 9-8 in walk-off fashion.
Martinez had a 2-1 lead after the second inning. But in the fourth, he gave up three more runs, including a two-run home run by the opposing pitcher Chris Rusin. Martinez allowed another run to score in the fifth before his night was done. He threw 100 pitches (69 strikes) in his five innings of work.
This was Martinez's worst start in quite some time, as it was the first time he had allowed more than three runs since May 9. In five starts this month, Martinez went 2-1 with a 2.03 ERA.

|(7/25/15) Cardinals starter Carlos Martinez put together a dominant outing Saturday, going eight innings and scattering just six hits as St. Louis earned a 1-0 win over the Braves.
Martinez walked just one batter and struck out six to improve to 11-4 on the season, tied for second in the National League for most wins. After a four-inning outing in his last start, Martinez bounced back in a big way, crusing through Atlanta's lineup to lower his ERA to 2.34.
Martinez needed just 93 pitches during his eight innings, relying on 13 ground-ball outs.

Cardinals' Carlos Martinez is headed to first All-Star game
|by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer|
|(7/10/15) Cardinals starter Carlos Martinez has earned the final spot on the National League All-Star team, as he was the winner of the Final Vote.
Martinez ends the first half of the season with a 10-3 record and is seventh in the NL with a 2.52 ERA.
This is the first All-Star selection for the 23-year-old right-hander.
|2014 summary: After doing everything he could to secure a rotation spot in spring training, Carlos Martinez began 2014 in the bullpen and got into such bad habits there that by the time a rotation spot finally did open for him in mid-June, he didn't do enough to keep it, lasting only seven starts. But he ironed things out in the bullpen, compiling a 0.49 ERA, 0.98 WHIP and 8.3 strikeouts per nine innings in his final 17 appearances.|
Playing time status: The Cardinals saw enough progress from Martinez to go ahead and free up a rotation spot for him this offseason, trading Shelby Miller to the Braves. He was too high-caliber of a prospect for them not to force the issue eventually.
2015 outlook: Martinez could probably lose that spot with a dreadful spring, but assuming he holds up his end of the bargain, he'll be an obvious sleeper on Draft Day -- particularly in Head-to-Head points leagues, where his relief pitcher eligibility should make him a standout at that position. He could be a standout at starting pitcher as well, but even if he takes to the role right away, he'll probably face some innings limitations at some point.
