Martin (elbow) underwent Tommy John surgery Wednesday, Chandler Rome of the Houston Chronicle reports.
Martin went for a second opinion on his injured right elbow this week but was unable to avoid the dreaded surgery. The 23-year-old will be out the remainder of this season and will likely miss the bulk of the 2020 season, as well. Martin received his first taste of the majors earlier this year and had a 5.59 ERA, 1.81 WHIP and 19:12 K:BB in five starts. Jul 05 1:24 pm (EST)
- General manager Jeff Luhnow said Sunday that Martin is slated to receive a second opinion on his injured right elbow later this week, Brian McTaggart of MLB.com reports. "I don't think he's going to be pitching any time soon," Luhnow said of Martin.
- Martin sustained a potentially serious elbow injury during Sunday's start for Triple-A Round Rock and was placed on the minor-league injured list, Brian McTaggart of MLB.com reports.
- Martin, who was optioned to Triple-A Round Rock on Tuesday, has a mechanical flaw in his delivery he'll address while in the minors, Chandler Rome of the Houston Chronicle reports. "It's frustrating," Martin said after a start Monday. "I know what I'm doing wrong and not fixing it right now. We'll get into it, and it'll come. I know that." All Corbin Martin (R) News
