Martinez was drafted by the Oakland Athletics in the 17th round in 2016 from Arizona State University.

During his time with Stockton, Martinez complied a 3-3 record with a 3.35 ERA in 26 games while starting 16 of them in 43 innings pitched.

The former Sun Devil was one of two players selected by the Houston Astros in the Rule 5 Draft in December of 2020.

In his debut against the Los Angeles Angels last Monday night, the righty flashed a one-two-three inning in the 9th to end the game.
