2016

Martin was traded to the Yankees toward the end of the offseason last year, but struggled to make much of an impact in the majors, as he pitched to a 5.66 ERA in 20.2 innings. He was released by New York at the beginning of the 2015 offseason with the intention of signing with the Nippon-Ham Fighters of Japan, so he'll likely be off the fantasy radar entirely for at least the 2016 season, if not beyond.

2015

Martin made his debut with the Rockies as a 27-year-old last April, completing an improbable journey to the majors for the reliever, who had been a full-time warehouse worker just four years earlier. Unfortunately for Martin, the feel-good story didnít continue during his 16 appearances with the Rockies (6.89 ERA, 1.66 WHIP), and his surface numbers werenít overwhelmingly better over his 26.2 innings at Triple-A, either. There were some positive things to take away from his time with the Rockies, however. On the strength of a mid-90s fastball he was often able to keep low in the zone, Martin generated a 60.8% groundball rate. Moreover, the right-handerís .408 BABIP and 3.77 FIP indicate that he could become a passable MLB reliever with a little better luck. Heíll get another look in the Colorado bullpen this season, though itís unlikely heíll rank high on the totem pole for saves.
