Cardinals ready to give Martinez a shot as full-time starter

SAN DIEGO -- Speaking in absolutes during baseball's rumor season is not advisable. Things change, surprises happen and mystery teams emerge. But enough with a disclaimer. I'm ready to say this with as much certainty as anyone can who is not spending the Winter Meetings in the war room of the St. Louis Cardinals. Here it goes: Despite what you might have heard or read, the Cardinals...

St. Louis Cardinals should keep Carlos Martinez in bullpen to begin season

St. Louis Cardinals first called up righthanded pitcher Carlos Martinez from the minor leagues in May 2013, and the flamethrower established himself as the team’s eighth-inning pitcher by September and the playoffs.
