Joe Martinez To Be Called Up / Wellemeyer To DL

By Bryan Rose

Joe Martinez has been scratched from his scheduled start for the Grizzlies tonight, so, expect to see the Giants prospect with the big league club when they square off against the Athletics tomorrow evening. He will replace Todd Wellemeyer who is expected to be placed on the disabled list after injuring himself earlier today.

Martinez’s season was painfully interrupted early last year after he took a line-drive off of the lower skull, courtesy of outfielder and current Red Sox, Mike Cameron. He returned late in the year but routinely struggled to finish out the season.

The 27 year old is 5-2 with a 3.07 ERA in 11 starts this year for the Fresno Grizzlies.
