Athletics' Adrian Martinez: Impressive in long relief
Martinez didn't factor into the decision in the Athletics' loss to the Mariners on Monday, allowing an earned run on five hits and a walk over four innings. He also recorded a strikeout and uncorked two wild pitches.
Control issues aside, Martinez provided some valuable length for manager Mark Kotsay after starter Kyle Muller was chased following four innings. Martinez has allowed at least one earned run in each of the five appearances he's logged since being promoted from Triple-A Las Vegas on Aug. 8, but the combination of his versatility and the slew of pitching injuries the Athletics are still dealing with is likely to continue affording the right-hander consistent opportunities....

Athletics' Adrian Martinez: Takes second loss Wednesday
Martinez (0-2) took the loss against the Royals on Wednesday, allowing an earned run on three hits, a hit batsman and a walk over 2.1 innings. He struck out three.
Martinez's one big mistake was deposited by Dairon Blanco into the left-field seats in the third inning for the first run of the game. The right-hander has allowed at least one run in all four appearances he's logged since returning to the majors Aug. 8 while pitching to a 5.73 ERA, 1.55 WHIP, 4.1 BB/9 and 1.6 HR/9 across 11 innings. With both Luis Medina (finger) and Freddy Tarnok (calf) on the injured list for the time being, Martinez could be called on for another spot start early next week.... See More ... See Less
Athletics' Adrian Martinez: Gets starting nod Wednesday
Martinez is listed as the Athletics' starting pitcher for Wednesday's game against the Royals, Martin Gallegos of MLB.com reports.
Martinez has made 12 starts at Triple-A Las Vegas this season, but he's been working exclusively as a reliever across multiple stints with Oakland, compiling a 5.85 ERA and 1.42 WHIP in 32.1 innings over 14 appearances. Since he's reached four innings just once this season for the Athletics and will be pitching on three days' rest after making a one-inning appearance Saturday against the Orioles, Martinez is unlikely to reach the five innings he would need Wednesday to qualify for a win. Instead, look for the Athletics to treat Martinez as a multi-inning opener in front of Kyle Muller, who is available to pitch on four days' rest.... See More ... See Less
Athletics' Adrian Martinez: Long-relief assignment in return
Martinez, recalled from Triple-A Las Vegas earlier in the day, allowed two earned runs on four hits and three walks over 4.2 innings during a loss to the Rangers on Tuesday. He recorded five strikeouts and did not factor into the decision.
The young right-hander was afforded an 82-pitch assignment right out of the gate in his first taste of major-league action since May 26. Martinez ate up some valuable innings in the process, getting all but the last out of the night for the Athletics after starter JP Sears exited following four laborious frames. Martinez is slotting into a bullpen role for the time being, but as the length of Tuesday's appearance indicates, he's capable of serving in a bulk-relief capacity or even moving into the rotation if necessary....

Athletics' Adrian Martinez: Recalled from Triple-A
Oakland recalled Martinez from Triple-A Las Vegas on Tuesday.
Martinez has struggled to a 5.70 ERA across 23.2 innings this season at the major-league level, but the Athletics need fresh bullpen arms as they play out the string in 2023. Dany Jimenez was optioned out in a corresponding roster move.... See More ... See Less
Athletics' Adrian Martinez: Optioned to Triple-A
Martinez was optioned to Triple-A Las Vegas on Saturday, Matt Kawahara of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.
Martinez will head to Las Vegas after posting a 2.84 ERA and 1.42 WHIP with six strikeouts over 6.1 innings in five appearances during his second stint with Oakland this season. The 26-year-old will likely get another shot with the Athletics this summer, but for now, Hogan Harris was recalled from Triple-A and will serve as the bulk relief pitcher following opener Austin Pruitt versus the Astros on Saturday. Meanwhile, the team's official site reports Martinez will work as a starter -- his projected long-term role in the majors -- with the Aviators after primarily operating in multi-inning relief out of necessity during his just-concluded big-league stint....

Athletics' Adrian Martinez: Effective in IL return
Martinez, activated from the injured list earlier in the day, fired two scoreless innings in which he allowed a hit and recorded two strikeouts during a loss to the Diamondbacks on Monday.
The right-hander needed just 22 pitches to record his six outs, a highly efficient outing that stood in stark contrast to both his prior body of work at the big-league level this season and during his recent rehab assignment. Martinez had allowed nine earned runs over his last two appearances before going on the injured list with an elbow injury, and he'd subsequently given up four runs on seven hits over 2.1 innings in his pair of minor-league turns....

Athletics' Adrian Martinez: Comes off injured list Monday
The Athletics reinstated Martinez (elbow) off the 15-day injured list Monday.
Martinez ended up missing three weeks with a right elbow strain. The right-hander has struggled to a 6.75 ERA over 17.1 innings while working out of the bullpen, and he'll likely be a middle-innings option for Oakland while he's with the roster. Zach Neal was sent back to Triple-A in a corresponding transaction.... See More ... See Less
Athletics' Adrian Martinez: Hit hard in second rehab appearance
Martinez (elbow) was charged with the loss in Triple-A Las Vegas' defeat at the hands of Albuquerque on Friday, allowing three earned runs on four hits across 1.2 innings. He struck out two and hit a batter.
Martinez pitched to plenty of contact for the second time in as many rehab appearances, although Friday's performance was by far the poorer of the two. Given the right-hander's struggles thus far in the minors, it's possible he's afforded a few more rehab appearances to straighten matters out before activation is considered.... See More ... See Less
Athletics' Adrian Martinez: Makes first rehab appearance
Martinez (elbow) made a rehab appearance for Triple-A Las Vegas on Tuesday, covering 1.2 innings while allowing one earned run on three hits and two walks.
The Athletics are likely planning to have Martinez work as a multi-inning reliever upon his return from the 15-day injured list, and the fact that he built up to 37 pitches Tuesday could mean that he won't require any further rehab appearances prior to being activated. Before landing on the IL with a right elbow strain in late May, Martinez logged a 6.75 ERA and 1.38 WHIP in 17.1 innings out of the Oakland bullpen.... See More ... See Less
Athletics' Adrian Martinez: More rehab work Friday
Martinez (elbow) will throw an extended bullpen session Friday, the Associated Press reports.
The right-hander was knocked around for nine earned runs across 6.1 innings over his last two relief appearances before going on the injured list April 24 with right forearm inflammation and a strained right elbow. Martinez was able to throw a bullpen session Tuesday without any residual effects, setting up what is likely to be a longer session Friday. It's possible Martinez will embark on a rehab assignment sometime next week.... See More ... See Less
Athletics' Adrian Martinez: Completes side session
Martinez (elbow) threw a bullpen session Tuesday, Matt Kawahara of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.
Martinez has been on the injured list since April 24 with a right elbow strain. The right-hander may need a rehab assignment before returning to the Oakland bullpen, but he should be back with the Athletics in a mop-up role later this month if he endures no further setbacks in his recovery from the injury....

Athletics' Adrian Martinez: Avoids serious injury
Martinez's (elbow) MRI results revealed inflammation in his right forearm Wednesday but no structural damage, Martin Gallegos of MLB.com reports.
A's manager Mark Kotsay said Martinez will still be shut down from throwing for five days, but an extended stay on the injured list appears unlikely. The 25-year-old righty holds a 6.75 ERA and 1.38 WHIP over 17.1 frames across six appearances this season.... See More ... See Less
Athletics' Adrian Martinez: Heads to 15-day injured list
Oakland placed Martinez on the 15-day injured list Monday with a right elbow strain.
Martinez holds a 6.75 ERA and 14:5 K:BB over 17.1 innings this season while working exclusively out of the bullpen. It's not clear how long he might be sidelined.... See More ... See Less
Athletics' Adrian Martinez: Stellar in long relief
Martinez fired 3.2 scoreless relief innings in a loss to the Orioles on Thursday, allowing a walk and recording five strikeouts.
Starter Adam Oller was chased after allowing seven earned runs on eight hits over 2.1 innings, so Martinez spared his fellow bullpen mates some work with his effective pitching. It was an encouraging bounce-back effort from the 26-year-old, who'd fired three scoreless, one-hit frames against the Angels in his first appearance of the season April 2 but then had allowed two earned runs apiece in his next pair of outings....

Athletics' Adrian Martinez: Recalled from Triple-A

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....
