Rangers recall Nick Martinez on Monday; option Anthony Ranaudo


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(7/20/2015) The Rangers recalled pitcher Nick Martinez on Monday, the team announced. Martinez will start Monday's game at Colorado. He is 1-4 with a 5.91 ERA in his last six MLB starts.

To make room for Martinez, the team optioned pitcher Anthony Ranaudo to Triple-A. Ranaudo had a 7.63 ERA in 15 1/3 innings this season.


Rangers to recall Nick Martinez to start Monday at Colorado


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(7/19/2015) Rangers starting pitcher Nick Martinez will be recalled to start Monday's game at Colorado. The right-hander is 1-4 with a 5.91 ERA in his last six MLB starts.

Rangers could send Derek Holland and Nick Martinez to bullpen


by Ruben Palacios | Staff Writer
(7/17/2015) The Rangers are in need of bullpen help and they could find that help from within. It's a possibility that pitchers Derek Holland and Nick Martinez could help Texas reinforce its bullpen, per MLB.com.

Martinez (5-5) was optioned to Triple-A Round Rock on July 2, and Holland is working his way back from the disabled list. Holland said he felt good after a bullpen session on Friday.

"I'm probably exaggerating, but it felt like a rocket shooting out of my arm," Holland said.

Holland's return from the disabled list could be expedited if he chooses to join the bullpen instead of a return to the rotation, which would demand a number of rehab starts in the minors. 

"You discuss all options," manager Jeff Banister said. "You don't leave any option off the table. But in the same vein, this guy has been a starter and been a dynamic starter. We'd like to get him back in the rotation."

Holland said he would embrace whatever role awaits him.

"I just want to play," Holland said. "I'm trying everything I can. I want to be a part of this team."


Rangers demote SP Nick Martinez to Triple-A Round Rock


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(7/2/2015) 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.”

Martinez gave up nine hits, including two home runs, and walked four. 


Tough third brings defeat to Rangers SP Nick Martinez


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(6/20/2015) 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
(6/17/2015) 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.

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

The starter has yet to give up more than three earned runs in an outing after winning a rotation spot in the spring.

Martinez owns a 2.03 ERA and 35:19 K:BB ratio in 62 innings. He's slated to face the White Sox at home on Wednesday.


Rangers SP Nick Martinez climbs to 4-0 with easy victory


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(5/23/2015) Surprising Rangers right-hander Nick Martinez remained on a roll Saturday. It's easy to get a win when your team scores 15 runs, but he continued to mow down the host Yankees.

Martinez pitched shutout ball until Carlos Beltran homered in the sixth. He allowed another solo blast to Didi Gregorius in the seventh, but he finished having yielded two runs on five hits in seven innings with two walks and five strikeouts. He raised his record to 4-0 with the effort, but his ERA actually slid up a bit to 1.96.

He did overcome two walks in the first inning before settling down.

"The first inning, I don't know how to explain it," he told MLB.com. "I just didn't have it. But after that, I locked in and went on the attack."

The performance marked the first time since his second start that he pitched through the seventh inning.

He will try to stay hot when he pitches against Boston next Thursday.
