  • Guardians' Angel Martinez: Begins rehab assignment

    Martinez (hand) went 0-for-3 with a strikeout Thursday in his first rehab game with the Arizona Complex League Guardians.

    Martinez began the season on the injured list with a right foot contusion but then suffered a fractured hamate bone six weeks ago while on a rehab assignment for the foot injury. The 22-year-old will eventually move up to a higher affiliate and is likely to be optioned to Triple-A Columbus once he's deemed ready rather than be added to the Guardians' roster.

  • Guardians' Angel Martinez: Shifts to 60-day IL

    The Guardians transferred Martinez (foot) from the 10-day injured list to the 60-day IL on Wednesday due to a fractured hamate bone in his left hand, Zack Meisel of The Athletic reports.

    Martinez opened the season on the IL with what the Guardians listed as a right foot contusion, but he appears to have been diagnosed with the broken hand upon being lifted early in his third rehab game with Triple-A Columbus this past Saturday. As a result of the move to the 60-day IL, Martinez won't be eligible for activation until late May. Martinez has two minor-league options remaining and is likely to be assigned to Columbus once he completes a rehab assignment and is ready for activation.

  • Guardians' Angel Martinez: Shelved with foot contusion

    The Guardians placed Martinez on the 10-day injured list Thursday with a right foot contusion.

    Martinez's last Cactus League appearance came March 14, so the infielder may have suffered the foot injury in the Guardians' game that day against the Rockies. Though he'll begin the season on Cleveland's injured list since he's a member of the 40-man roster, the infielder will be optioned to Triple-A Columbus once he's healthy.

  • Guardians' Angel Martinez: Promoted to Triple-A

    Martinez was promoted from Double-A Akron to Triple-A Columbus on Friday.

    There has been a middle infielder domino effect within Cleveland's organization -- after Amed Rosario got traded, Brayan Rocchio was promoted from Triple-A to the majors and Martinez got bumped from Double-A to Triple-A. Martinez has started 44 games at second base, 25 games at shortstop and 18 games at third base this season, and while he got off to a slow start, the 21-year-old slashed .308/.372/.483 with five home runs, two steals and a 13.7 percent strikeout rate over his final 139 plate appearances at Double-A.

  • Guardians' Angel Martinez: Optioned to Triple-A

    Martinez was optioned to Triple-A Columbus by the Guardians on Tuesday, Mandy Bell of MLB.com reports.

    Martinez just turned 21 in January, so he wasn't going to make the Opening Day roster. He's shown well in spring training, though, collecting an .825 OPS with one homer and one steal.

  • Guardians' Angel Martinez: Shielded from Rule 5 draft

    Martinez was added to Cleveland's 40-man roster Tuesday.

    The 20-year-old worked his way up to the Double-A level in 2022, so the Guardians opted to protect him from the Rule 5 draft. Martinez had an .849 OPS with 13 home runs and 12 stolen bases in 101 games between High-A and Double-A last season.

  • Guardians' Angel Martinez: Headed to Double-A as 20-year-old

    Martinez was promoted to Double-A Akron on Saturday, Guardians Baseball Insider reports.

    The Guardians' farm system is stacked, particularly with middle infielders, and Martinez is one of the standouts. He hit .288/.384/.477 with 10 home runs, 10 steals and a 58:40 K:BB in 77 games at High-A and doesn't turn 21 until January.

  • Guardians' Angel Martinez: Back from injury

    Martinez (shoulder) was activated from the 7-day injured list at High-A Lake County on Wednesday.

    Martinez missed about two weeks of action with a left shoulder strain. He was surging prior to the injury, slashing .348/.412/.652 in his last 11 games. Overall, he's maintained a strong .276/.393/.476 slash line with eight home runs, 22 RBI, 33 runs scored and eight stolen bases in 61 contests, so it's possible the infield prospect eventually gets a look at Double-A Akron before the end of the year.

  • Guardians' Angel Martinez: Out with shoulder strain

    Martinez was placed on the 7-day injured list at High-A Lake County on Friday with a strained left shoulder.

    Martinez has an .869 OPS in 61 games for Lake County this season but will now be unavailable due to the shoulder issue. The severity of the strain remains unclear, though the 20-year-old will be eligible to be reinstated from the IL next week.

  • Indians' Angel Martinez: Showing well stateside

    Martinez is hitting .261/.333/.420 with five homers, 10 steals and 28:57 BB:K across 68 games for Low-A Lynchburg.

    At just 19, Martinez is 2.4 years younger than the average player in the league, and he's more than holding his own against older competition. This is the Dominican infielder's first season stateside, and he's making a positive impression, racing up Cleveland's prospect ranks thanks to his well-rounded skill set. Of course, he's still several years from the majors, but managers in dynasty formats will want to file his name away.
