Martis Allows Only Two Runs in Seven, But No Decision

Shairon Martis allowed just two runs over seven innings, but was handed a no-decision in an eventual 4-2 extra-inning loss to the Reds on Wednesday night. Martis allowed just two hits — the only damage came on a Jay Bruce two-run homer in the second inning. He fanned one and walked two in the no-decision. He’s allowed just three runs over his last two starts. Martis is still 5-1, but hasn’t won since May 13. Like his fellow rotation-mate John Lannan, Martis can be effective when he pitches to contact and lets his defense do the work behind him. His 5.04 ERA is probably an accurate reflection of his abilities at the moment, though. (Rotoworld, Rotowire)

Martis Escapes with No-Decision After Giving Up 5 Earned

Shairon Martis gave up five runs over six innings in an eventual 8-5 extra-inning loss to the Pirates on Tuesday night. Martis escaped without a loss tonight, and he has the Pirates’ bullpen to thank for that. He gave up five hits, including a home run to Andy LaRoche, to go with a pair of walks and strikeouts. He now has a 4.53 ERA and 23/19 K/BB ratio in 47 2/3 innings this season. While five wins on the Nationals is quite an accomplishment, those numbers aren’t particularly impressive. (Rotoworld)

Martis Improves to 5-0; Nationals 11-21

Shairon Martis improved to 5-0 after limiting the Giants to one run and two hits over seven innings on Wednesday. It’s simply amazing that Martis has managed to go 5-0 while posting a 4.10 ERA for an 11-21 team. He’s the only starting pitcher that the Nationals’ bullpen seems to like. He left with a two-run lead today and watched it hold up, though only because the offense came up with two insurance runs in the top of the ninth. (Rotoworld)

Martis Wins Fourth Straight Outing

Shairon Martis improved to 4-0 on Friday night as he held the Diamondbacks to three runs over 5 1/3 innings. Martis wasn’t particularly strong, as he gave up a run in the first and had runners on base in every inning, yielding nine hits and walking two. Chalk it up to some combination of limiting the damage and the Diamondbacks’ continued inability to get a big hit. Martis struck out six in the win. The Nationals are now 8-8 over their last 16 games. Martis has a 4.67 ERA, but most of that damage came in one poor start at Philadelphia. The 22-year-old is looking like a capable major-league starting pitcher, but he can’t keep winning a this pace pitching for the Nationals. You’re better off leaving him for NL-only leagues. His next start is scheduled for Wednesday at San Francisco. (Rotoworld, CBS Sports)

Roster Moves – May 5th – Week 5

FAAB Acquisition:

  • RP Clay Condrey, Phillies ($0 bid, Add to Actives)

Up:

  • SP Shairon Martis
  • SP Chad Gaudin
  • CM Emilio Bonifacio
  • OF Austin Kearns (to DH)

Move:

  • 1B Conor Jackson (to OF)
  • CM Casey Kotchman (to 1B)

Down:

  • RP John Grabow
  • RP Kyle McClellan
  • RP Juan Gutierrez
  • 3B Brian Barden
  • OF Jody Gerut

Cut:

  • OF Jose Tabata (Minors)

Notes:

  • Tabata will miss the next six weeks with a hamstring strain, and he was only hitting .250 at AA Altoona, so at this point he’s not a strong protection for 2010.

Martis Goes The Distance Against Cardinals

Shairon Martis allowed just one run in a complete game 6-1 win over the Cardinals on Saturday afternoon. It certainly helped to have Albert Pujols out of the lineup, but Martis was efficient, allowing just five hits. The lone run scored on Colby Rasmus’ first career home run. Martis struck out six and didn’t walk a batter in the win. Martis improved to 3-0, and struck out six and did not walk a batter in the game. Martis (3-0) retired the first 14 hitters he faced before Yadier Molina grounded a single through the middle in the fifth. The right-hander, who had never gone more than 6 1/3 innings, struck out six and walked none in a 110-pitch, nine-inning effort. He had allowed seven runs in his previous outing in Philadelphia, going just five innings in that game. However, he has allowed three or fewer runs in four of his five starts. He’s an interesting sleeper option in NL-only play and possibly deeper mixed leagues, but remember that he isn’t likely to get much support while playing for the lowly Nationals. This was a good bounce back after taking a beating in his last outing. He’s struck out just 13 batters in 29.3 innings so he’s going to run into some difficult times if that doesn’t continue to improve. It was the first ever complete game win by a National at Nationals Park. (Rotoworld, Rotowire, CBS Sports)
