Cardinals send out Martinez to face Reds

CINCINNATI -- St. Louis Cardinals right-hander Carlos Martinez will celebrate his 26th birthday on Thursday.

Manager Mike Matheny believes there is still plenty of untapped potential in Martinez's arm. The key is consistency, something that has eluded Martinez at times during his four big league seasons.

Martinez will make his 31st start of the season Thursday night against the Cincinnati Reds at Great American Ball Park.
