Martinez was placed on the injured list with a strained elbow on April 24. He recently completed a rehab assignment with Las Vegas where he allowed seven hits and four runs in 3 1/3 innings, but reported no further issues with the elbow.
Martinez began the season in Oakland’s bullpen as a multi-inning relief option. He’s appeared in six games and has a 6.75 ERA and a 4.97 FIP in 17 1/3 innings this season.
Neal was added to the active roster last Thursday. He appeared in two games and allowed four hits and three runs in 3 1/3 innings.
