Martinez to Tribe

Joe Martinez, the RHP obtained as part of the Javier Lopez deal last season, was traded to the Indians for future considerations, either cash or a PTBNL. Martinez, who was DFA'ed when Kevin Correia signed, still has two options remaining.

He is a fairly soft thrower, and didn't really fit into the Pirate bullpen's power pitching mold, which is why he got the ax instead of Chris Leroux. Between Pittsburgh and SF last year, JM was 0-1 with a 4.12 ERA, and his career line is 3-3 with a 6.16 ERA.
