News: Martinez was outrighted off the 40-man roster and will become a free agent after declining his minor league assignment, Jordan Bastian of MLB.com reports.
Impact: Martinez appeared in 16 games with the Indians near the end of the season, recording a .267/.290/.333 slash line to go along with two extra-base hits in 32 at-bats with Cleveland. He could receive a spring training invite from another team during the offseason, but he's unlikely to provide much fantasy production in 2016.

News: Martinez's contract was purchased from Triple-A Columbus on Thursday.
Impact: The 32-year-old journeyman has five home runs and 11 steals with a .289 batting average in 102 games at Triple-A, but it will be difficult for him to see regular at-bats for the Indians down the stretch. Look for him serve as a depth option at second base, center field, shortstop and third base.
