Report: Cardinals shut down Martinez for the year

SHARE Report: Cardinals shut down Martinez for the year

Despite a looming playoff run, the St. Louis Cardinals are shutting down pitcher Carlos Martinez for the year, according to ESPN.

Martinez suffered a shoulder strain a day after his latest start. The Cardinals say he won’t pitch again in 2015.

General manager John Mozeliak said if the injury occurred on Aug. 1, there’s a chance he would remain active, per ESPN.

He was removed just seven pitches into his start Friday after feeling right shoulder tightness against the Milwaukee Brewers.

For the season, Martinez is 14-7 with a 3.01 ERA this season.

Mozeliak said Tyler Lyons is likely to fill-in for Martinez in the Cardinals’ rotation.
