Twins sent RHP Shairon Martis outright to Triple-A Rochester.

After a few years in the minors Martis resurfaced with the Twins this season, sporting a 5.59 ERA over 9 2/3 innings with the club. Still just 26, Martis will serve as organizational depth.

The 26-year-old hasn't appeared in the big leagues since he was a member of the Nationals during the 2009 season. Working out of the bullpen for Triple-A Rochester, Martis compiled a 4.26 ERA, 1.23 WHIP and 65/31 K/BB ratio in 80 1/3 innings. He'll be used in middle relief.

Twins re-signed RHP Shairon Martis.

He'll get a spring training invite. Martis was picked up by the Twins from the Pirates in June and is coming off a bad year that saw him put up a 5.17 ERA over 139 1/3 innings between Double- and Triple-A. He's merely organizational depth.

He will serve as organizational depth.

Pirates signed RHP Shairon Martis to a minor league contract.

Martis hasn't appeared on a major league mound since the 2009 season, when he posted a 5.25 ERA in 85 2/3 innings for the Nationals. The 24-year-old righty will have trouble breaking that streak with the Pirates.

Nationals sent RHP Shairon Martis outright to Triple-A Syracuse.

Martis was designated for assignment by the Nationals last week. He successfully cleared waivers and will be a non-roster invitee during spring training. The 23-year-old right-hander spent the entire 2010 season with Triple-A Syracuse, posting a 4.09 ERA over 27 starts.

Nationals designated RHP Shairon Martis for assignment.

Martis had a nice run in the Nats' rotation early in 2009, but he eventually fell apart and spent all of 2010 in the minor leagues. He's only 23 years old, so he should draw some interest on the waiver wire.

Nationals optioned RHP Shairon Martis to Triple-A Syracuse; reassigned Chris Duncan and Pete Orr to minor league camp.

Martis allowed eight runs in 5 1/3 innings this spring (13.50 ERA). He opened 2009 in the starting rotation, but will start this season at Triple-A.

Shairon Martis was lit up for six runs in 1 1/3 innings by the Astros on Thursday.

Martis opened last year as the Nationals' fourth starter and won his first five decisions. However, he did nothing over the final four months and he entered this spring as a long shot to claim a roster spot. The soon-to-be 23-year-old will probably be a part of the Triple-A rotation.

Shairon Martis will not be promoted from Triple-A Syracuse because he has reached his innings limit.

Martis hit 160 combined innings and was shut down. He was 5-3 with a 5.25 ERA for the Nationals earlier this season. General manager Mike Rizzo said Martis will get an opportunity to compete for a spot in the rotation next year.

Nationals optioned RHP Shairon Martis to Triple-A Syracuse.

Martis started the season incredibly strong and is actually leading all Nationals starters in wins, but the club needed room for Scott Olsen. Martis will leave behind a 5-3 record and a 5.25 ERA.
Mon, Jun 29, 2009 08:45:00 AM

The Nationals revealed after Sunday's game that they're demoting Shairon Martis to Triple-A.

They had previously announced that Craig Stammen would be bounced from the rotation to make room for the returning Scott Olsen, but now he'll avoid a trip to the pen and start Tuesday. Martis goes down despite being the Nationals' leading winner this season. He was 5-3 with a 5.25 ERA.
Sun, Jun 28, 2009 07:45:00 PM

Shairon Martis was hit hard for six runs in five innings of a loss to the Blue Jays on Sunday.

Martis walked two, hit a batter, and gave up eight hits, including a solo homer. The right-hander had given up a total of four earned runs between his last three starts. Martis does have talent and the potential to be a mid-rotation starter, but inconsistency figures to be part of the package right now. He's not recommended in Baltimore against the Orioles next time out.
