Braves' Cody Martin allows tying home run Wednesday
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(4/23/15) Braves pitcher Cody Martin gave up a game-tying home run in the seventh inning his team's eventual 3-2 loss to the Mets Wednesday. It was the only hit he allowed in one inning of work while striking out one.
"I make one bad pitch tonight, and it really wasn’t that bad of a pitch," Martin said after the game, per the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. "I went and looked at the video, it was a slider away. It wasn’t like it was elevated too much. I think he was maybe looking slider and got the pitch he wanted, took a good swing. He kind of dove out there, hit it to left. At first I didn’t think it was going to carry, but it took off. It sucks. You don’t want to blow a close lead like that, especially after Stultsy pitched his butt off."
It was the second home run Martin has surrendered in his last four appearances. However, he has delivered a 1.80 ERA and 14:2 K:BB ratio in 10 innings.

Braves to use Cody Martin in more high-leverage situations
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(4/13/15) The Braves will use reliever Cody Martin in more high-leverage situations moving forward, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.
Martin has come into each of his three appearances no later than the seventh inning but has excelled while on the mound, giving up one hit in 3 1/3 scoreless innings while striking out seven and walking none. The Braves designated Juan Jaime for assignment Monday and added Sugar Ray Marimon, who will pitch in long relief, to the roster.
Braves' Martin has pitched his way into contention for roster spot
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(3/19/15) Braves pitcher Cody Martin picked up the relief win during Thursday's 6-3 victory against the Marlins. Martin (1-0) tossed three scoreless innings, allowing three hits and one walk, while striking out one.
Martin hasn't allowed a run in eight spring innings. He's given up just four hits and four walks, while striking out seven.
After Thursday's game, manager Fredi Gonzalez said Martin is "in the mix" for a spot on the roster -- whether it is in the rotation or bullpen, per the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.
"At this point, you get tired of watching guys throw it up to hit the bull. Throw the ball over the plate. He’s one of those guys who throws the ball over the plate and gets people out. He doesn’t throw 98 (mph), he throws 88, but he gets people out. And he mixes his pitches," Gonzalez said.
Martin, who was a seventh-round pick in 2011, is 26-22 with a 3.07 ERA in 100 career outings (67 starts) in four minor-league seasons.
Braves pitcher Cody Martin in contention for starting job
|by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com|
|(3/8/15) Braves pitcher Cody Martin was already being considered for one of the five spots in Atlanta's starting rotation. But with an injury to Mike Minor, two spots are now open and Martin is being looked at even closer, reports MLB.com.
"He's earned that opportunity and chance," Braves manager Fredi Gonzalez said."It's wide open. We went from having a fifth spot open to having two spots open. So why not put him in the mix there?"
Martin pitched in Minor's place Sunday, totaling three strikeouts over two scoreless innings.
"My big thing was just to throw strikes and try to get my fastball going," Martin said. "Last year, my command in camp was terrible. I was walking guys in the zone and I was getting hit around. I was like, 'What am I doing?' Looking back, I was just overthrowing. I was coming out of the 'pen thinking I'm going to throw 96 [mph]. Well, I don't throw 96. I'm not going to light up the radar gun, but I am going to hit my spots and throw four pitches for strikes. If you do that, good things can happen."
