Player Notes
Nick Martinez struggled in Sunday's loss to the Angels, yielding four runs on six hits over five-plus innings.

Advice: Two of the six hits Martinez allowed left the ballpark, as Mike Trout launched a solo shot off the pitcher in the first inning and C.J. Cron touched him up for another solo homer in the fourth. He was pulled after walking Conner Gillaspie to open the sixth inning. The walk was one of three he issued on the day, to go against five strikeouts. The 24-year-old right-hander's made two starts since being recalled from Triple-A on July 20 and has allowed 11 runs in nine innings during this second crack at the rotation. That his ERA still sits at 3.99 is a testament to how well he was pitching when the team first called him up. At 47-50, the Rangers should be motivated to find another starter at the trade deadline unless they've completely given up on the season.

Nick Martinez surrendered seven runs in four innings but lucked into a no-decision as the Rangers came back and ultimately lost in walk-off fashion to the Rockies on Monday.

Advice: The Rockies plated three runs in the first inning and four in the second, capped off by a two-run Troy Tulowitzki home run. Martinez gave up seven hits and walked two while striking out two in the outing. The young right-hander has been demolished in three of his last seven starts, sending his ERA up to 3.92 with a 1.41 WHIP and a 59/36 K/BB ratio over 101 innings. Martinez has a date in Los Angeles with the Angels next.

Mon, Jul 20 Rotoworld
Rangers recalled RHP Nick Martinez from Triple-A Round Rock.

Advice: Martinez will start on Monday against the Rockies. The righty was sent down earlier this month after seeing his ERA balloon from 2.76 to 3.43. He should remain in the rotation for a while if he performs, but we're not terribly optimistic.

Mon, Jul 20 Rotoworld
Nick Martinez will be recalled to start on Monday against the Rockies.

Advice: It's unclear what the plan is for Wandy Rodriguez, who had been slated to take the ball Monday. Martinez got off to a great start this season but then hit a wall and was sent down earlier this month. He'll get another shot after allowing three runs over six innings in two starts with Triple-A Round Rock.
