Carlos Martinez is battling for Cardinals rotation? Who might he beat out?

The most interesting news out of the Cardinals Spring Training camp so far is that Carlos Martinez will be used as a starter.  It seemed almost a foregone conclusion that Martinez would be relegated to the pen.  The Cardinals return starters Adam Wainwright, Michael Wacha, Shelby Miller and Lance Lynn this year and Jaime Garcia appears to be fully recovered from 2013 shoulder surgery...

In fact, he will get the ball in the team’s Florida opener on Friday, February 28. (Full spring schedule is here.)

Are the Cardinals using Carlos Martinez as a trade chip?

A report from Mark Gonzalez of the Chicago Tribune indicates that the White Sox turned down a deal that involved Cardinals prospect Carlos Martinez and the White Sox's shortstop Alexei Ramirez.  However, that report was later contradicted by a tweet from Jon Heyman, who said the Sox did not turn down such an offer, but that he would not be surprised if the Cards were interested...

Don’t forget about Carlos Martinez

With Jake Westbrook formalizing a one-year contract extension with the St. Louis Cardinals on Tuesday, it brings the future of the rotation into focus. Next season, the major league club will have six experienced starters without Kyle Lohse, whose departure seems more likely given Westbrook’s new deal.
