Player Notes
Nick Martinez has won the fifth spot in the Rangers' rotation.

Advice: The news was expected and was officially announced by manager Jeff Banister on Sunday. Martinez posted an ordinary 4.55 ERA with just 77 strikeouts over 140 1/3 innings last season but boasts a 0.84 ERA this spring. He's not recommended for fantasy purposes.

Nick Martinez recorded four strikeouts while spinning six scoreless frames Thursday against the Rockies.

Advice: He yielded five hits (four of them were singles) while walking one. It's a performance that just might be enough to wrap up the fifth spot in the rotation for Martinez, who now boasts a microscopic 0.84 ERA this spring. He's competing primarily with Nick Tepesch for the job.

Evan Grant of the Dallas Morning News believes that Nick Martinez leads the competition for the Rangers' No. 5 starter job.

Advice: He cautions that "nothing is decided" but thinks that Martinez is the "front runner." Martinez's main competitors for the gig are Nick Tepesch, Anthony Ranaudo and Lisalverto Bonilla. The 24-year-old made 24 starts for Texas last season, posting a 4.55 ERA with just 77 strikeouts over 140 1/3 innings overall.
