Cardinals' GM John Mozeliak said the fifth starter spot will be Carlos Martinez's to lose.
Martinez, a hard throwing right-hander, will be given the first chance to be the fifth starter for the Cardinals. While he has only started eight games over the past two season, the Cardinals see enough potential in him to let attempt to run away with the job. Martinez was a starter in the minors and he posted over a strikeout an inning. He will be a sleeper to target moving into 2015.
