Martinez was recalled from Triple-A Memphis on Sunday.
Martinez won't be awarded a spot in the starting rotation like he had during his previous stint with the team, but the Cardinals can certainly use his services as a hard-throwing righty out of the bullpen. The 22-year-old owns a shaky 4.74 ERA over 68.1 major league innings this season, but does sport a respectable 8.43 K/9 rate. Kevin Siegrist was optioned to Memphis to clear a roster spot.
