Martinez began the season in the A’s bullpen as a multi-inning relief option. He got off to a good enough start allowing four earned runs combined over his first four appearances (11 inning). However, he has struggled in his last two allowing nine earned runs in just 6 2/3 innings. His last appearance came Saturday where he allowed five runs, including a pair of homers, in 3 2/3 innings against the Rangers.
For the season, Martinez has appeared in six games and has a 6.75 ERA and a 5.00 FIP in 17 1/3 innings.
