  • Reds' Nick Martinez: In line for start Wednesday

    Martinez is listed as the Reds' probable starter for Wednesday's game against the Padres in Cincinnati.

    After Nick Lodolo (groin) went on the injured list, Martinez stepped into the vacant rotation spot last week in Los Angeles. He was deployed in bulk relief behind opener Brent Suter in last Thursday's 7-2 win, tossing five shutout innings while allowing one hit and no walks. Barring a late change of plans from manager David Bell, Martinez looks poised to operate as a traditional starter Wednesday, and he should have a higher innings ceiling as a result.

  • Reds' Nick Martinez: Picks up first win

    Martinez (1-2) earned the win over the Dodgers on Thursday, pitching five shutout innings in relief while allowing one hit and striking out four.

    Martinez relieved Justin Wilson to open the bottom of the third and proceeded to retire 15 of the 16 batters he faced while generating 12 swings and misses. Martinez has been outstanding in a relief role and carries a 0.87 ERA to go along with a 9:2 K:BB through 10.1 innings in May over four appearances.

  • Reds' Nick Martinez: Set for bulk-relief role

    Martinez is expected to operate as a bulk reliever behind opener Brent Suter in Thursday's game against the Dodgers in Los Angeles, Gordon Wittenmyer of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

    Martinez has made four starts this season, but because he'll be available on only three days' rest after recorded four outs of the bullpen in Sunday's 6-5 loss to the Giants, the Reds will deploy him in bulk relief Thursday in what would have been Nick Lodolo's (groin) turn in the rotation. With Lodolo on 15-day injured list and set to miss at least two weeks, Martinez could move into a more traditional starting role when that spot in the rotation comes up again next week.

  • Reds' Nick Martinez: Option to start Thursday

    Martinez is a candidate to start or work in bulk relief in Thursday's game against the Dodgers, Charlie Goldsmith of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

    Nick Lodolo (groin) was placed on the 15-day injured list Wednesday, leaving an opening in the rotation for Thursday. Unless the Reds choose to bring aboard a starter from the minors, Martinez would be the likely to choice to cover the bulk of the innings Thursday. He would be available on three days' rest after he had a 1.1-inning relief appearance Sunday. He remains relatively stretched out, having made four starts for the Reds this season, with the last one coming April 30.

  • Reds' Nick Martinez: Returns to relief role

    Martinez made his most recent appearance as a reliever in Saturday's 2-1 loss to the Orioles, striking out two and allowing no hits and one walk over two scoreless innings.

    Martinez's prior two appearances came as a starter, but he moved back to the bullpen over the weekend in anticipation of Frankie Montas' (forearm) return to the rotation. With the Reds officially activating Montas from the 15-day injured list to start Tuesday's game against the Diamondbacks, Martinez should stick in the bullpen moving forward until one of Cincinnati's five starters succumbs to another injury.

  • Reds' Nick Martinez: Mediocre results versus former team

    Martinez (0-2) took the loss Tuesday against the Padres, allowing five runs (three earned) on six hits and a walk while striking out three over five innings.

    The Padres first got to Martinez in the third with a run and then would plate four more in the fifth with a bases loaded double by Manny Machado being the big hit in the inning. It hasn't been smooth sailing for Martinez to begin his tenure with the Reds, as he's given up at least three runs and six hits in all four of his starts thus far while managing to get to six innings once. The 33-year-old owns a 5.46 ERA, 1.39 WHIP and 20:3 K:BB in 28 innings. If Frankie Montas (forearm) is able to return when first eligible next week then it's likely Martinez returns to a long relief role in the bullpen for the foreseeable future.

  • Reds' Nick Martinez: Remains in rotation this week

    Martinez is slated to start Tuesday's game against the Padres at Petco Park.

    He'll make a second straight turn through the rotation as a replacement for Frankie Montas (forearm), who was forced to the injured list April 22. In his return to a starting role last Thursday following a brief stint in the bullpen, Martinez was roughed up by the Phillies for five earned runs on 11 hits over six innings. Martinez should fare better Tuesday at Petco Park, where he turned in a 2.60 ERA over 62.1 innings in 2023 as a member of the Padres.

  • Reds' Nick Martinez: Gives up five in loss

    Martinez (0-1) took the loss against the Phillies on Thursday, allowing five runs on 11 hits over six innings. He struck out three.

    Four of the runs against Martinez came in the third inning, including two on a Bryce Harper home run. After starting the season in the Reds' rotation, Martinez found more success when shifted back to the bullpen, allowing one run on five hits over seven innings in a pair of long-relief appearances. Still, he'll likely make one more start, currently scheduled for Tuesday in San Diego against his former team, with Frankie Montas (forearm) on the IL. The 33-year-old Martinez now sports a 5.48 ERA with a 1.39 WHIP and 17:2 K:BB across 23 innings this year.

  • Reds' Nick Martinez: Re-entering rotation Thursday

    Reds manager David Bell said Martinez will start Thursday's game against the Phillies in Cincinnati, Charlie Goldsmith of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

    After making four- and three-inning appearances out of the bullpen last week, Martinez will rejoin the rotation during the upcoming week, replacing the injured Frankie Montas (forearm). Bell noted that he's hopeful Montas is able to return from the 15-day injured list around when he's first eligible May 7, so Martinez is likely looking at a two-start run before he presumably heads back to the bullpen.

  • Reds' Nick Martinez: Throws multiple relief innings

    Martinez allowed two hits and struck out two over three scoreless innings, picking up his first hold in Saturday's 7-5 win over the Angels.

    Martinez made his second relief appearance since being removed from the starting rotation. He's thrown multiple innings in each outing, allowing one run on five hits while striking out five over seven innings. That multi-inning relief role is one in which Martinez thrived as a member of the Padres in 2023.

  • Reds' Nick Martinez: Looks set to remain in bullpen

    Martinez isn't listed among the Reds' three probable pitchers for the team's series in Seattle that begins Monday, Charlie Goldsmith of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

    While manager David Bell hasn't officially said that Martinez has been removed from the Cincinnati rotation, the right-hander's continued absence from the Reds' pitching schedule to begin the week suggests that he's been moved to the bullpen. With Nick Lodolo (calf) returning from the 15-day injured list Saturday with a 10-strikeout gem, Goldsmith relays that the Reds are expected to have Lodolo make his next turn in the team's series opener with the Angels on Friday. Rather than expanding the rotation to six men to keep Martinez on hand as a starter, the Reds seem inclined to let him operate as a multi-inning reliever, a role in which he thrived with the Padres for much of the past season. Martinez had been erratic in his first two starts of the season with Cincinnati, giving up eight earned runs on 14 hits and two walks while striking out nine over 10 innings.
