Not looking good.  Considering the likes of Brett Anderson as a replacement. Thinking reversion to the mean warrants holding on for a few good starts. Looking at 2020, however, makes me concerned that this might be his new normal.

Reports of his arrest this winter, Peter notes in the Rotoman Special, were somewhat exaggerated.

Carlos Martinez (P) STL - Feb. 18

https://www.rotowire.com/baseball/player.php?id=763129

Martinez, who enjoyed a successful run in winter ball in the Dominican Republic, enters spring training focused on regaining a spot in the starting rotation, Zachary Silver of MLB.com reports. "I feel great with all my pitches," said Martinez. "One hundred percent focused. On my mind, focused, on my workout, focused, on working hard. ... If I didn't play in the winter league, I wouldn't [be as prepared] right now."

ROTOWIRE RECOMMENDS: The veteran right-hander was felled by COVID-19 during the abbreviated 2020 campaign, and as an asthmatic, he was clearly suffering residual effects once he returned. Martinez generated an unsightly 9.90 ERA and 2.10 WHIP -- both career-worst figures -- across 20 innings over five starts before landing on the injured list with an oblique strain in the final week of the season. However, Martinez made up for some lost time this winter, opting to play in the Dominican Republic for the first time since the 2014-15 offseason and posting a 1-0 record and 1.84 ERA in three starts while working on refining his pitch combinations. Battery mate Yadier Molina went 0-for-3 against Martinez while facing him in the Caribbean Series and noted the pitcher looked stronger and more poised on the mound.

In fantasy metrics Carlos was as bad in a 60-game season as he was good the year before in a normal season.

He was bad every way you look at it, but in one particular metric he was the worst in baseball.
