Martinez struck out seven, ending the game with a 5.26 ERA and 1.33 WHIP on the season.
Analysis: Martinez was called up from Triple-A Round Rock on Friday and made his 14th start of the season for Texas. He replaced Tyson Ross in the rotation. Ross moved to the bullpen, and A.J. Griffin had his scheduled start pushed back two days to Sunday.
Aug. 9 8:21 AM PT9:21 AM MT10:21 AM CT11:21 AM ET11:21 ET15:21 GMT23:21 8:21 AM MST10:21 AM EST10:51 AM VEN19:21 UAE10:21 AM CT-The Rangers have sent Martinez to Triple-A Round Rock.
Analysis: Martinez has struggled in both starts since spending nearly two months on the disabled list. He was tagged for five runs in four innings at Minnesota on Sunday. The 27-year-old Martinez is 3-4 with a 5.38 ERA in three stints with Texas this season, appearing in 16 games and starting 13.
Aug. 6 7:54 PM PT8:54 PM MT9:54 PM CT10:54 PM ET22:54 ET2:54 GMT10:54 7:54 PM MST9:54 PM EST10:24 PM VEN6:54 UAE (+1)9:54 PM CT-Nick Martinez allowed five runs on five hits and two walks in 4.0 innings as the Texas Rangers lost to the Minnesota Twins 6-5 on Sunday. Martinez struck out five, ending the game with a 5.38 ERA and 1.37 WHIP on the season.
Analysis: Recalled from Triple-A to take Yu Darvish's spot in the rotation, Martinez hasn't pitched anything like his former teammate in his two starts following the promotion. He was rocked for seven runs in 5 1/3 innings in a loss to Seattle on Tuesday. There should be far better fantasy choices available on the waiver wire for those in need of starting pitching.
Aug. 2 8:59 AM PT9:59 AM MT10:59 AM CT11:59 AM ET11:59 ET15:59 GMT23:59 8:59 AM MST10:59 AM EST11:29 AM VEN19:59 UAE10:59 AM CT-Nick Martinez fell to 3-4, allowing seven runs on eight hits and two walks in 5.1 innings, as the Texas Rangers lost to the Seattle Mariners 8-7 on Tuesday.

June 26 9:14 AM PT10:14 AM MT11:14 AM CT12:14 PM ET12:14 ET16:14 GMT0:14 9:14 AM MST11:14 AM EST11:44 AM VEN20:14 UAE11:14 AM CT-Nick Martinez improved to 3-3, allowing four runs on six hits and one walk in 5.0 innings, as the Texas Rangers defeated the New York Yankees 7-6 on Sunday. Martinez struck out three, ending the game with a 4.55 ERA and 1.21 WHIP on the season.
Analysis: Martinez shut the Yankees out through the first four innings as Texas jumped out to a 7-0 lead, then called it a day after being reached for four runs in the fifth. The right-hander has been decent since rejoining the rotation earlier this month, posting a 2-0 record and a 3.63 ERA in three starts.
June 21 8:08 AM PT9:08 AM MT10:08 AM CT11:08 AM ET11:08 ET15:08 GMT23:08 8:08 AM MST10:08 AM EST10:38 AM VEN19:08 UAE10:08 AM CT-Nick Martinez improved to 2-3, allowing one run on two hits and three walks in 6.1 innings, as the Texas Rangers defeated the Toronto Blue Jays 6-1 on Tuesday. Martinez struck out two, ending the game with a 4.33 ERA and 1.19 WHIP on the season.
Analysis: Martinez had just one quality start from the beginning of May until June 13, but he's done that his last two times out.
June 14 8:49 AM PT9:49 AM MT10:49 AM CT11:49 AM ET11:49 ET15:49 GMT23:49 8:49 AM MST10:49 AM EST11:19 AM VEN19:49 UAE10:49 AM CT-Nick Martinez allowed two runs on five hits in 6.0 innings as the Texas Rangers defeated the Houston Astros 4-2 on Tuesday. Martinez struck out one, ending the game with a 4.67 ERA and 1.24 WHIP on the season.
Analysis: It was the first time in his last four starts that he's lasted past the fifth inning, and he's not a big strikeout pitcher, so Martinez remains a poor fantasy option.

May 25 8:34 PM PT9:34 PM MT10:34 PM CT11:34 PM ET23:34 ET3:34 GMT11:34 8:34 PM MST10:34 PM EST11:04 PM VEN7:34 UAE (+1)10:34 PM CT-Nick Martinez fell to 1-3, allowing four runs on seven hits and two walks in 5.0 innings, as the Texas Rangers lost to the Boston Red Sox 6-2 on Thursday. Martinez struck out four, ending the game with a 4.69 ERA and 1.31 WHIP on the season.
Analysis: Martinez had pitched well in each of his last two outings and wasn't all that bad in this one, as he was hurt mostly by giving up a two-run homer to Xander Bogaerts. Still, he's recorded only one win over his last 13 starts dating back to August 2015 and remains a low-end option for fantasy purposes.

Apr. 29 12:18 PM PT1:18 PM MT2:18 PM CT3:18 PM ET15:18 ET19:18 GMT3:18 12:18 PM MST2:18 PM EST2:48 PM VEN23:18 UAE2:18 PM CT-Nick Martinez allowed three runs on five hits in 6.0 innings as the Texas Rangers lost to the Los Angeles Angels 6-3 on Friday. Martinez struck out seven, ending the game with a 2.77 ERA and 0.77 WHIP on the season.
Analysis: Martinez started again in place of A.J. Griffin, who is recovering from inflammation in his left ankle. Martinez has pitched very well in both starts since joining the rotation and could prove worthy of a regular spot with another good one.
Apr. 23 11:57 PM PT12:57 AM MT1:57 AM CT2:57 AM ET2:57 ET6:57 GMT14:57 11:57 PM MST1:57 AM EST2:27 AM VEN10:57 UAE1:57 AM CT-Martinez took a no-hitter into the sixth inning of a spot start Saturday and allowed one run on four hits over seven as the Rangers posted a walk-off 2-1 win over the Royals.
