Rangers demote SP Nick Martinez to Triple-A Round Rock
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(7/2/15) The Rangers optioned starting pitcher Nick Martinez to Triple-A Round Rock on Thursday to clear a roster spot for reliever Neftali Feliz, who was activated off the disabled list.
Martinez's demotion comes as a bit of a surprise since he is 5-5 with a 3.43 ERA through 16 starts. However, he has struggled as of late, going 0-3 with a 5.61 ERA in his last four starts.
His demotion clears the way for Texas to activate Matt Harrison from the disabled list and place him into the starting rotation next week.
“We’ve talked about a six-man option, but I don’t think a straight six-man rotation is something we can do with guys and their routines right now,” manager Jeff Banister said, per The Dallas Morning News. “Right now, it’s about getting Nick some extra rest and something of a break. But there are some options we have discussed.”

Tough third brings defeat to Rangers SP Nick Martinez
|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
|(6/20/15) Sometimes one lousy inning means defeat for a starting pitcher. Rangers right-hander Nick Martinez certainly learned that the hard way Saturday.
Martinez was rolling merrily along against the White Sox for two inning before surrendering three singles to start the third. A sacrifice fly and two hit batters resulted in three runs. He then hurled three more scoreless innings, escaping a bases-loaded jam in the fifth, but he wound up with a defeat.
He finished having allowed two earned runs on six hits with three walks and two strikeouts. Martinez has given up only five earned runs in his last 19 innings covering three starts as his ERA has shrunk to a fine 2.77.
Martinez will try to lower it further on the road in his next outing Friday, but that won't be easy against the hot-hitting Blue Jays.
Rangers calling up Anthony Ranaudo, pushing back rotation
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(6/17/15) The Rangers will recall Anthony Ranaudo to pitch Thursday against the Dodgers, the team announced Wednesday. Ranaudo is expected to return to Triple-A Round Rock after Thursday's start, per The Dallas Morning News.
Ranuado's promotion means the rest of the rotation is getting pushed back. Colby Lewis will now start Friday's series opener the White Sox and be followed by Nick Martinez and Yovani Gallardo in the three-game series.
Chi Chi Gonzalez, who was slated to start Sunday, will be pushed back to Tuesday against the Athletics.
