Richie Martin went 3-for-5 with two triples, one single, two RBIs, and three runs scored in Sunday's 10-7 win over the Royals.
Martin became the first Oriole to hit two triples in one game since Mullins ll in 2020. In only two games played this season, the righty hitter is slashing .444/.444/.889. We will need a larger sample size before determining his value.
Richie Martin went 1-for-4 with a solo home run as the Orioles fell to the Red Sox 8-to-1 on Friday.
Martin is hitting .217 with a .688 OPS in 24 at-bats this season. The speedy infielder can be left on the Waiver Wire in standard redraft leagues.
Richie Martin will have wrist surgery on Wednesday and will be out for the year, per manager Brandon Hyde.
Martin is a top-20 prospect in the Orioles' system, but his development will be significantly delayed after this extended layoff and subsequent surgery. Andrew Velazquez will likely back up Jose Iglesias at shortstop.
Richie Martin was diagnosed with a broken wrist over the weekend, per manager Brandon Hyde. He will begin the season on the injured list.
Martin does not have a timetable for his return. At best, he was slated to be the backup to Jose Iglesias at shortstop. A top-20 prospect in the Orioles' system, Martin posted a paltry 50 wRC+ in the majors in just over 300 plate appearances.
Richie Martin started at shortstop in Sunday's 3-2 victory over the Phillies, but struck out in both of his at-bats.
Martin is competing with Andrew Velasquez to be Jose Iglesias's backup, but he likely won't see meaningful big-league at-bats this year. He could be a source of plug-and-play steals if he were to get time, however.
