Player Outlook
Nick Martini came back to the States from Korea on a minor-league deal and spent most of the 2023 season at Triple-A Louisville, before the Reds selected his contract for the final two months to provide depth amid a rash of injuries. He provided a jolt for Cincinnati, going deep six times in 72 at-bats. He enters spring training in a competition for the final outfield spot along with Stuart Fairchild and Jose Barrero. Amazingly, the 33-year-old Martini still has a minor league option remaining, which could work against him, as both Fairchild and Barrero would need to clear waivers before a minor league assignment.

  • Reds' Nick Martini: Homers, collects three hits

    Martini went 3-for-5 with a two-run homer, three RBI and two runs scoring during Sunday's 11-4 win over the White Sox. Martini's two-run blast was his third of the season, while the three hits were a season high. Martini began the season with a bang, hammering two homers in the season opener, but had collected just four more hits prior to Sunday. His outburst raised his average 59 points from .231 to .290.

  • Reds' Nick Martini: Sits versus lefty

    Martini is not in the lineup for Monday's game versus Milwaukee. Martini will once again head to the bench as the Brewers send out Aaron Ashby to pitch Monday. Jonathan India will serve as the designated hitter while Santiago Espinal receives a start at second base.

  • Reds' Nick Martini: Sitting against southpaw

    Martini is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Mets. He'll bow out of the starting nine while the Mets bring left-hander Sean Manaea to the bump. With Martini getting the afternoon off, Jonathan India will get a day out of the field and serve as Cincinnati's designated hitter.

  • Reds' Nick Martini: Delivers run in win

    Martini started at designated hitter and went 1-for-4 with an RBI and a run scored in Wednesday's 4-1 win over the Phillies. The Reds have faced right-handed starters four times thus far and the lefty-batting Martini has served as the DH in all four. He leads the team with nine RBI and has thrived with runners on base. Martini is 0-for-5 with no runners on but 5-for-10 when bases are occupied.

  • Reds' Nick Martini: Sits versus lefty

    Martini is out of the lineup for Monday's game against the Phillies. With lefty Cristopher Sanchez on the bump for Philadelphia, the lefty-hitting Martini will take a seat for the second time in four games to begin the season. Martini has gone 4-for-8 with two home runs, one double, one walk, seven RBI and an additional run so far this season, so he should be locked into a regular role against right-handed pitching as the Reds' designated hitter while he's wielding a hot bat.

  • Reds' Nick Martini: Clobbers pair of homers

    Martini went 2-for-4 with a three-run home run and a two-run home run during Thursday's win over the Nationals. Martini filled the DH role against Josiah Gray and delivered home runs off the right-hander in back-to-back innings. He was responsible for driving in five of Cincinnati's eight runs on the day. It appears Martini will have the opportunity carve out a regular spot in the lineup during TJ Friedl's (wrist) and Matt McLain's (shoulder) IL stints.

  • Reds' Nick Martini: Starting in season opener

    Martini will serve as the Reds' designated hitter and No. 8 batter in Thursday's season opener versus the Nationals. At least against right-handed pitching, Martini looks like he'll get the first opportunity to fill the lineup spot that was opened up by TJ Friedl (wrist) and Matt McLain (shoulder) beginning the season the injured list and by Noelvi Martin serving an 80-game suspension to begin the season. Though the Reds' logjam in the infield and outfield is alleviated to some degree by those absent players, the lefty-hitting Martini will still likely need to find some early success against right-handed pitching to ensure he sticks in a strong-side platoon role. Over 361 career plate appearances versus righties, Martini has slashed .288/.380/.449 with eight home runs.

  • Reds' Nick Martini: Earns roster spot

    Martini was told he made Cincinnati's Opening Day roster, Mark Sheldon of MLB.com reports. The Reds made a few moves Friday, including reassigning Mike Ford to minor-league camp. Ford, who was later released by the organization, was limited defensively to first base, while Martini can play outfield and first base. That versatility will help manager David Bell navigate the opening month of the season when three projected regulars will be unavailable due to injury or suspension. Martini celebrated the news Friday by smashing his fourth spring home run. The 33-year-old, who launched six homers in 72 at-bats for the Reds in 2023, will also serve as the lefty power bat off the bench.

  • Reds' Nick Martini: Swats first spring homer

    Martini started at first base and went 1-for-3 with a two-run home run in Saturday's spring game against Arizona. Not only was Martini's home run his first of the spring, it was the first hit of any kind in 15 at-bats. The left-handed hitter is redundant in an outfield that skews lefty, and there doesn't appear to be room for him, especially since Spencer Steer is expected to see most of his time in the outfield.

  • Reds' Nick Martini: Smacks leadoff homer

    Martini went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Sunday's 4-3 loss to the Cardinals. Martini led off the game with a homer on Miles Mikolas' third pitch. Martini had a couple of bursts in 2023, including going 6-for-12 with two homers over his last four games of the season. The 33-year-old ends the campaign with a .264/.329/.583 slash line, six homers, 16 RBI, 10 runs scored, three doubles and a triple over 79 plate appearances in his first major-league action since 2021.

  • Reds' Nick Martini: Goes deep in win

    Martini went 2-for-5 with a double, a three-run home run and a second run scored in Friday's 19-2 win over St. Louis. Martini kicked off the Reds' 19-run outburst with a blast in the first inning. It was his fifth homer of the year and first since Sept. 5. Martini owns a .242/.315/.545 slash line with nine extra-base hits and 15 RBI through 27 games.

  • Reds' Nick Martini: On bench against lefty

    Martini is out of the lineup for Friday's game against the Mets. The lefty-hitting Martini will hit the bench for the fifth time in seven games, but all of his absences during that stretch have come against left-handed starting pitchers. He's started each of the Reds' last three matchups with right-handers and seems to have a loose hold on a strong-side platoon role for the time being. Since his call-up from Triple-A Louisville on Aug. 22, Martini has been productive at the plate with an .820 OPS over 61 plate appearances.

  • Reds' Nick Martini: Provides key hit

    Martini entered as a pinch hitter and hit a three-run home run in Tuesday's 7-6 win over the Mariners. Martini's three-run shot in the bottom of the eighth inning tied the game before Christian Encarnacion-Strand ended matters in the ninth. The home run was Martini's fourth in 46 plate appearances since the Reds added him to the roster in August. Prior to his stint with Cincinnati, the 33-year-old had just two homers in 333 PAs in the majors. Martini, who had an .874 OPS at Triple-A Louisville, was overlooked several times earlier this season as the club called up its younger prospects, but he may have had the biggest hit in the Reds' improbable season.

  • Reds' Nick Martini: Goes to bench Tuesday

    Martini is out of the lineup for Tuesday's game against the Mariners. Hunter Renfroe will enter the lineup in the corner outfield as a replacement for Martini, who had started in all but three of the Reds' past 14 games. All three of his absences had come when the Reds faced left-handed pitchers, but the lefty-hitting Martini will sit against right-hander Bryce Miller on Tuesday. Martini's move to the bench comes amid a 4-for-27 slide at the plate over his last nine games.

  • Reds' Nick Martini: Homers in nightcap

    Martini started in left field and went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in a 3-2 win over the Cubs in the second game of Friday's doubleheader. He went 0-for-1 as a pinch hitter in the matinee. Martini, who had an early impact after the Reds selected his contract in August, has slipped since, going 3-for-16 over the last six games. Jake Fraley's return from the injured list should limit Martini's plate appearances over the final month of the season.

  • Reds' Nick Martini: Stays hot Saturday

    Martini went 3-for-4 with a double, a walk and two RBI in Saturday's 8-7 win over Arizona. Martini has now posted a monstrous 1.423 OPS through five games with the Reds since being called up from Triple-A Louisville on Tuesday, and so long as he's wielding a hot bat, he'll likely continue to play on a near-everyday basis while Cincinnati is without the likes of Jonathan India (foot), Joey Votto (shoulder), Jake Fraley (toe) and Stuart Fairchild (concussion). Martini will serve as the Reds' designated hitter and No. 5 batter in Sunday's series finale.

  • Reds' Nick Martini: Breaks out with two homers

    Martini went 2-for-3 with a pair of home runs, four RBI, one walk and three total runs scored in Friday's 10-8 loss to the Diamondbacks. Martini had gone 0-for-6 with a walk over his first three games since he was selected to the Reds' roster Tuesday. He made a noticeable impact Friday with a solo shot in the second inning and a three-run blast in the sixth. The 33-year-old outfielder has found a path to playing time between right field and designated hitter with Jake Fraley (toe) and Stuart Fairchild (concussion) on the injured list. Martini slashed a strong .275/.393/.481 with 15 homers over 93 games with Triple-A Louisville prior to his call-up.

  • Reds' Nick Martini: Signs minor-league deal with Reds

    Martini signed a minor-league contract with the Reds on Friday. Martini has appeared in 112 big-league games, hitting .270/.369/.369. Over the last four seasons, however, he's hit just .238/.338/.315 in 57 MLB contests. He spent last season with the NC Dinos of the KBO, hitting .296/.365/.461 with 16 homers and 12 steals. If he wins a bench spot, he'll have a nice park to call home, but he doesn't look like a favorite to do so.

  • Nick Martini: Headed for KBO

    Martini agreed in principle Thursday to a contract with the NC Dinos of the Korea Baseball Organization, Jim Bulley of the Korea Joongang Daily reports. Given the uncertainty of the 2022 MLB season in addition to the fact that he would likely have to settle for a minor-league deal if he stayed stateside, the 31-year-old outfielder will instead opt for some greater financial security by heading overseas. Over parts of three seasons in the big leagues spent with the Athletics, Padres and Cubs, Martini owns a respectable .270/.369/.369 slash line across 333 plate appearances.

  • Cubs' Nick Martini: Removed from 40-man roster

    Martini was outrighted to Triple-A Iowa on Thursday, Jordan Bastian of MLB.com reports. Martini saw inconsistent playing time in the majors during the 2021 campaign and will now lose his spot on the 40-man roster. If he remains in the organization, he'll likely compete for a major-league roster spot during spring training in 2022.
