Brett Martin
25-Year-Old PitcherRP
2020 Fantasy Outlook
A starter for the bulk of his minor-league career, Martin transitioned to the bullpen in 2019 and found his way to the majors for the first time. He pitched in 51 games in an up-and-down rookie campaign, finishing the season with a 4.76 ERA and 1.44 WHIP. Martin's 3.65 FIP suggests that he pitched better than his surface numbers indicate, and he was certainly stung by a .340 BABIP, though it's worth noting that high BABIPs have followed him throughout his professional career. However, the southpaw's solid command (6.4 BB%) and ability to induce ground balls (53.7 GB%) portend improved numbers going forward, especially if he is able to inch his 8.95 K/9 closer to the 9.92 K/9 mark he averaged over his last three minor-league campaigns. Texas has not closed the door on moving Martin back into the rotation, but his best chance at sustained success is likely in the middle-relief role he filled last season. Read Past Outlooks

Grabs extra-inning win
PTexas Rangers
September 25, 2020
Martin (1-1) allowed an unearned run on one hit in one inning and earned the extra-inning win Friday versus the Astros.
ANALYSIS
Martin allowed a sacrifice fly by Alex Bregman to knock in the initial runner Jose Altuve in the 10th inning. The Rangers bailed out Martin by scraping together a pair of runs in the bottom half of the frame. The 25-year-old southpaw has posted a 1.98 ERA, 1.24 WHIP and two holds in 13.2 innings across 14 appearances.
