Analysis: The Cardinals' expected ace has posted a lousy 7.04 ERA in losing his last three starts and has issued 11 walks in 15 1/3 innings over that stretch. Martinez is still helping owners in the strikeout category, though. He's now racked up 31 in 22 2/3 innings after fanning seven on Thursday.

Analysis: He became the first Cardinals pitcher with eight walks and 11 Ks in a game since the aptly named Wild Bill Hallahan in 1930.

Analysis: Coming off a brilliant Opening Night turn in which he fanned 10 Chicago Cubs in 7 1/3 scoreless innings, Martinez didn't exhibit the same stuff or command in this one. He hit two batters, walked one and threw a wild pitch. He'll make his next start Saturday at Yankee Stadium, and was brilliant against the AL last year, going 1-0 with a 0.67 ERA and 0.93 WHIP.

The ace right-hander struck out 10 and walked none in 7 1/3 innings in his first start on opening day.
Analysis: Martinez could be big for fantasy owners this season after going 16-9 with a 3.04 ERA last season.

According to ESPN.com, the deal would be the longest ever given a player heading into his first year of arbitration eligibility.
Analysis: Per ESPN, the biggest deal for a pitcher entering his first chance at arbitration was Corey Kluber's five-year, $38.5 million contract with the Cleveland Indians in 2015. Martinez was an All-Star in 2015, when he finished 14-7 with a 3.01 ERA in 31 games (29 starts). Last year, he went 16-9 with a 3.04 ERA in 31 starts. He ranked in the league's top 10 in wins and ERA both years.
