Athletics' Adrian Martinez: Optioned to Triple-A
Martinez was optioned Friday to Triple-A Las Vegas by the Athletics.
Martinez was competing for a spot in the Oakland starting rotation, but the right-hander will instead open the season with the Aviators in the Pacific Coast League. In 2022, the right-hander struggled to a 6.24 ERA and 1.53 WHIP over 57.2 innings pitched. He'll likely be an up-and-down option for the A's again in 2023.... See More ... See Less
Athletics' Adrian Martinez: Revamps delivery
Martinez revamped his delivery in the offseason, Matt Kawahara of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.
The Athletics and Martinez are hoping that the cleaner delivery will lead to better results at the highest level. It's hard to imagine it making things worse, as the right-hander was lit up to the tune of a 6.24 ERA and 1.53 WHIP in 57.2 innings with Oakland in his rookie year. Martinez also registered a 5.72 ERA in his 18 starts in Triple-A, and fantasy managers will need to see some form of success on a consistent basis before giving him any kind of roster consideration....

Athletics' Adrian Martinez: Rough end to season
Martinez allowed four runs on seven hits and two walks over 4.1 innings against the Angels Tuesday. He fanned five and did not factor into the decision.
Marinez's season came to a close with a rocky start Monday, as he surrendered four runs for the fourth time in his final five starts. A silver lining is that none of the runs Monday came via the home run after he allowed seven over his previous four starts. The rookie finishes the season 4-6 with a 6.24 ERA over 57.2 innings....

Athletics' Adrian Martinez: Takes third loss in last four
Martinez (4-6) took the loss Wednesday, allowing three runs on five hits over 4.2 innings against the Angels. He struck out four.
Martinez retired nine of the first 10 batters he faced before surrendering a solo home run to Mike Trout in the fourth inning to make it a 1-1 game. The Angels then tacked on two more runs in the frame. Martinez has now allowed three or more runs in four consecutive starts, going 0-3 over that stretch with a 9.33 ERA and 1.91 WHIP....

Athletics' Adrian Martinez: Hit hard in no-decision
Martinez allowed five runs on six hits and two walks while striking out seven across five innings during a 9-5 loss Thursday against Seattle. He did not factor into the decision.
Six of the first seven batters Martinez faced Thursday reached safely, leading to three runs. He then retired 13 of the next 14 batters with the lone hit being a solo homer by Jarred Kelenic in the fourth. The 25-year-old righty has been shelled in each of his last three starts, allowing 16 runs and six homers over 13.2 innings and watching his season ERA rise from 4.37 to 6.10.... See More ...

Athletics' Adrian Martinez: Gives up four homers
Martinez (4-5) gave up four earned runs on four hits and three walks while striking out six over five innings to take the loss in a 5-0 defeat against the Astros on Friday.
Martinez was crushed by four solo home runs on 97 pitches to take his fifth loss in nine starts this season. Three of the homers came off the bat of Yordan Alvarez, who perfectly read the ball coming out of Martinez's hand in each of his three times through the order. Martinez's ERA rises to a bloated 5.77 with the performance and he now has a -0.4 WAR on the season according to Baseball-Reference. The rookie right-hander is tentatively expected to make his next start against the Mariners.... See More ... See Less
Athletics' Adrian Martinez: Knocked around by White Sox
Martinez (4-4) took the loss against the White Sox on Saturday, allowing seven runs on 14 hits, a walk and a wild pitch over 3.2 innings while recording two strikeouts.
Martinez hung in for 93 pitches, but it was an arduous journey that saw the rookie endure arguably his worst major-league outing yet. The right-hander's troubles began in the second inning when he allowed an RBI single to Yasmani Grandal and a three-run home run to Elvis Andrus, and he also subsequently conceded an Eloy Jimenez sacrifice fly and Andrew Vaughn two-run double in the fourth before exiting. Heading into Saturday's turn, Martinez was coming off a brilliant three-start stretch during which he'd pitched to a 1.72 ERA and 0.96 WHIP, so he'll be aiming for a major course correction in his next projected start, which is likely to come against the Astros on the road Thursday....

Athletics' Adrian Martinez: Tosses six scoreless frames
Martinez (4-3) allowed three hits and two walks while striking out four in six scoreless innings to earn the win over the Orioles on Sunday.
Martinez's spot in the rotation was in question after Ken Waldichuk was called up recently, but the Athletics chose to expand to a six-man rotation for this past week. Martinez responded with his longest start of the season to earn his second consecutive win while posting his first career quality start. He's been somewhat inconsistent over his first seven major-league starts but has settled down recently, posting a 1.72 ERA in 15.2 innings over his last three appearances. With James Kaprielian moving to the bullpen, Martinez projects to make his next start next weekend against the White Sox.... See More ... See Less
Athletics' Adrian Martinez: Keeps rotation spot
Martinez is scheduled to start Sunday's game in Baltimore.
Martinez looked as though he might have been at risk of moving to the bullpen after the Athletics summoned Ken Waldichuk from Triple-A Las Vegas to start Thursday, but at least for this week, Oakland will expand their rotation to six men to open up spots for both rookies. Though Martinez owns an unremarkable 5.28 ERA and 1.34 WHIP over six outings with Oakland this season, he turned in the best start of his young career his last time out Aug. 28, when he limited the Yankees to one run while allowing five baserunners and striking out career-high six batters over 5.1 innings....

Athletics' Adrian Martinez: Sharp in return to majors
Martinez (3-3) allowed a run on three hits and two walks while striking out six over 5.1 innings to earn the win over the Yankees on Sunday.
Martinez spent three weeks at Triple-A Las Vegas, but he was brought up Sunday to replace Zach Logue in Oakland's rotation. Against a tough opponent. Martinez turned in an impressive start and picked up his first win since July 5. The right-hander has logged a 5.28 ERA, 1.34 WHIP and 25:9 K:BB through 29 innings across six starts this year. The 25-year-old likely earned himself another start with this outing, which is tentatively expected to be a road matchup in Baltimore.... See More ... See Less
Athletics' Adrian Martinez: Promoted to start Sunday
Martinez was called up from Triple-A Las Vegas and will start Sunday against the Yankees.
The 25-year-old was demoted to Las Vegas after giving up two runs over 4.1 innings against the Giants on Aug. 7, and he'll rejoin the A's to start in the series finale versus the Yankees. Martinez has a 6.08 ERA in the majors this year and surrendered eight runs across his two minor-league starts since facing San Francisco.... See More ... See Less
Athletics' Adrian Martinez: Respectable showing in loss
Martinez (2-3) took the loss Sunday against San Francisco, allowing two runs on four hits and a walk while striking out five in 4.1 innings.
Martinez was called up before the game to fill the spot in the rotation left vacant when Frankie Montas was traded. The first run against Martinez came on a solo homer by Mike Yastrzemski in the third, and the second came in the fifth inning after he was removed with two on and one out. It was his fifth start of the season for Oakland and first since July 11. For the season he has a 6.08 ERA and 1.44 WHIP with six homers allowed in 23.2 innings. Should he stay with the big-league club, his next start will likely be next weekend in Houston.... See More ... See Less
Athletics' Adrian Martinez: Sent down by Oakland
Martinez was optioned to Triple-A Las Vegas on Monday.
Martinez started Sunday against the Giants and gave up two runs on four hits and a walk while striking out five in 4.1 innings to take the loss. While the Athletics haven't yet indicated who will take his place in the rotation, Domingo Tapia was called up Monday.... See More ... See Less
Athletics' Adrian Martinez: Called up ahead of start
The Athletics recalled Martinez from Triple-A Las Vegas in advance of his scheduled start Sunday against the Giants in Oakland.
Oakland sent first baseman/designated hitter Dermis Garcia to Triple-A to clear a spot on the active roster for Martinez, who will temporarily settle in as the Athletics' No. 5 starter in the wake of Frankie Montas being dealt to the Yankees ahead of the trade deadline. Considering Martinez turned in a 6.52 ERA and 1.50 WHIP over four starts with the Athletics earlier this season and because his numbers at Triple-A over a larger sample aren't much better (5.54 ERA, 1.45 WHIP in 16 starts), he'll likely need a respectable showing against San Francisco to ensure he sticks in the big-league rotation beyond Sunday. The Athletics have three other starting pitchers (Zach Logue, Jared Koenig and JP Sears) on the 40-man roster waiting in the wings at Triple-A to replace Martinez if he can't get the job done....

Athletics' Adrian Martinez: Set to start Sunday
Martinez will be called up from Triple-A Las Vegas to start Sunday's game against the Giants, Martin Gallegos of MLB.com reports.
Martinez had mixed results over four starts with the big club earlier in the season, and he will get another chance to show what he can do in the final game of the Bay Bridge Series. He threw at least 91 pitches in his last three starts with Triple-A, so don't expect him to be on a pitch count.... See More ... See Less
Athletics' Adrian Martinez: Sent to minors
The Athletics optioned Martinez to Triple-A Las Vegas on Tuesday.
A four-run, 4.1-inning start Monday raised Martinez's ERA to an unimpressive 6.52 mark. It remains to be seen whether the righty gets more big-league opportunities this season.... See More ... See Less
Athletics' Adrian Martinez: Struggles in Texas
Martinez (2-2) allowed six runs (four earned) on four hits and four walks with three strikeouts in 4.1 innings, taking the loss Monday versus the Rangers.
Since rejoining the Athletics in late June, Martinez has two bad starts and one good one. Monday was a struggle, as he had two wild pitches and a balk lead to two runs in the second inning. The Rangers' got to him for three more runs in the fourth and another in the fifth before he exited the contest. With only a tenuous grasp on a rotation spot, Martinez can't afford much inconsistency. He's posted a 6.52 ERA, 1.50 WHIP and 14:6 K:BB across 19.1 innings this year. If Frankie Montas (shoulder) returns during the upcoming three-game series versus the Astros, it's unclear if Martinez will make another start before the All-Star break. His turn would come up Sunday if he stays in the rotation.... See More ... See Less
Athletics' Adrian Martinez: Picks up second win
Martinez (2-1) earned the win Tuesday over the Blue Jays. He allowed three runs on eight hits and no walks while striking out five in five innings.
Martinez allowed all three runs on home runs -- former Athletics slugger Matt Chapman took him deep for a two-run blast in the second inning and Teoscar Hernandez added a solo shot in the fourth. While it wasn't a convincing start, Martinez got enough run support and four scoreless innings from the Oakland bullpen to come away with his second win in three starts. The right-hander has a 6.00 ERA, 1.40 WHIP and 11:2 K:BB through 15 innings so far. Martinez likely did enough to earn himself another start, which is projected for next week in Texas....
