SP,RP - STL - IL60
Carlos Martinez is unlikely to return for the Cardinals this season according to manager Mike Shildt.
Martinez was having quite the disappointing season prior to getting injured. He compiled just four wins and nine losses to go with a 6.23 earned run average and just 57 strikeouts in 82.1 innings pitched this season. Your best bet would have been to go with a more reliable option even if he was healthy.
St. Louis Cardinals pitcher Carlos Martinez (thumb) underwent surgery for a torn ligament on his right thumb recently and is out for the season.
According to St. Louis Cardinals manager Mike Shildt, Martinez underwent surgery the other day on his thumb to repair a torn ligament. He will miss the rest of the season. Martinez finishes 2021 with a (4-9) record and a 6.23 ERA, 1.37 WHIP, and a 57:36 K: BB across 82 1/3 innings in 2021. The 29-year-old is in the final year of his five-year-$51 million contract. He has spent his entire career in St. Louis but has a team buyout of $500K in 2022, which could result at the end of his Cardinals playing days.
The St. Louis Cardinals placed pitcher Carlos Martinez (thumb) on the 10-day injured list Wednesday.
Martinez will be sidelined indefinitely with a torn ligament in his right thumb. He was placed on the 10-day injured list and currently has no timetable for a return. Fantasy managers should continue to monitor the situation but can move on from Martinez in all league formats. Lars Nootbaar was recalled from Triple-A Memphis on Wednesday.
Carlos Martinez appears to have escaped a serious injury after leaving Sunday's start early against Colorado.
Martinez suffered the injury during his at-bat against German Marquez where he appeared to jam his right thumb. He should be considered as day-to-day right now, but it appears he will be ready for his next start.
Carlos Martinez was removed in the fourth inning of his start against the Rockies on Sunday with an apparent injury. He had allowed only a hit, an earned run, and a walk with two strikeouts in 3 1/3 innings prior to departing.
The veteran right-hander allowed a solo home run to Trevor Story in the first inning but otherwise was solid. He had an absolutely awful month of June (10.87 ERA) and simply has been too inconsistent this season to trust heading into a matchup next weekend against the Cubs (if healthy enough to make that start).
