Athletics’ Adrian Martinez to get initial assignment in Seattle

Athletics' Adrian Martinez To Get Initial Assignment In Seattle

Adrian Martinez, who bowled a scoreless in the sixth inning on his lone start in May and was promptly returned to the minors, will get another shot with the Athletics.

Martinez will replace left-hander Jared Koenig, who was selected for Triple-A Las Vegas after taking four turns in the rotation and going 1-2 with a 6.38 earned run average.

“Adrian Martinez will be back with the club tomorrow and starts in Seattle,” Athletics manager Mark Coates said on Wednesday ahead of the completion of the three-match road series against the New York Yankees.

Martinez will start Thursday night against the Mariners’ Logan Gilbert (8-3, 2.44). On May 10, Martinez was brought in from Las Vegas as the 27th roster spot, starting in the second game of a doubleheader against Detroit and, although he pitched well, returned to the Aviators immediately after the game. He played 5 1/3 innings in the 4–1 victory, giving away four hits and scoring no runs.

Received in a send-off trade to Shawn Manea at the San Diego Padres, Martinez is 4-3 at Las Vegas with a 5.63 earned run average. He has given 67 hits in 63 innings with 23 walks and 73 strikes.

“Vegas is a tough place to pitch in and if you look at the numbers it doesn’t tell the whole story,” Kotse said. “Given him the pitch in Detroit, he bowled the ball very well, bowled the strike, bowled the sinker, did the change-up and had a slider to go with it. To give us another chance at him, we’re about to hit it.” I feel good.”

Kotse went off to say that Martinez, 25, would get an extended look in the rotation.

“I think we’ll start it at once in terms of evaluation,” Kotse said. “I don’t want to get ahead of myself in commitments.”

Lullaby to IL?: DH/infielder Jade Lowry has been of use of late and has been caught in a 0-for-25 slump.

Lowry is attempting rehab for a shoulder injury and may still be headed for the injured list at some point.
