Description: Rangers pitcher Nick Martinez allowed two runs over five 2/3 innings in Sunday's loss to the Athletics.
Insight: Martinez tossed up four hits, did not walk a batter and struck out two. Unfortunately, Martinez ran into Sonny Gray, who pitched a complete-game shutout for the Athletics. Gray finishes the year 5-12 with 4.55 ERA in 140 1/3 innings this year.

Description: According to Evan Grant of the Dallas Morning News, Nick Martinez will start the Rangers' fifth game of the season on April 8.
Insight: The Rangers had to move everyone up a spot due to Yu Darvish's neck stiffness. Martinez has only thrown 32 innings above Single-A and none above Double-A. He has posted a 3.30 ERA and a 1.21 WHIP in 327 1/3 minor league innings. Darvish doesn't have structural damage in his neck so Texas may only need Martinez for one start.
