2012 When you start moving down levels after several cracks at Triple-A and a couple of trips to the big club, as Shairon Martis did last year, you're eventually going to wind up pitching for Morris Buttermaker's Bearsóbad news for you.
2011 For all of the Nats' problems in the rotation, the one thing they refused to revisit was the Shairon Martis experience. Leaving the former WBC ace of Holland in upstate New York wasn't some legally required leftover of patroonship, but a choice to see if he'd turn any particular corner. Unfortunately, Martis was much as he's always been, giving up tons of fly balls without especially sharp control or any one dominant offering. He's durable, knows what he's doing, and holds runners well, but absent a difference-making offering, he's a 24-year-old already smushed up against his ceiling and a tough sell for the 40-man roster.
2010 Martis got off to a misleading start, putting together a 5-0 record and 4.10 ERA in his first seven games, becoming a veritable fantasy baseball darling in the process. Due diligence would have have prevented the horde of fant-league waiver activity, as his ugly strikeout and unintentional walk rates portended a decline in the near future. Sure enough, in his next eight starts Martis posted a 6.34 ERA, with 2.7 K/9 and 4.1 UBB/9, earning a trip back to the glorious upstate New York in time for July. While it would be easy to write him off as having little upside beyond that of a fifth starter, it should be noted that his problems at the major-league level were with his control, and he's had great command in the minors. He won't be an ace, but if he can regain his control, most teams could do worse than to employ Martis as a back-end rotation starter. The Nats' problem is that they have more candidates for the fifth slot than the third or fourth.
2009 This Curacao native provided the top highlight of the original World Baseball Classic by throwing a no-hitter against Panama, and he will settle in as the Dutch ace once again this spring. A change in his delivery, designed to slow him down and get more leg into it, added five mph to his fastball and helped him approach a league-average strikeout rate for the first time. Martis is not afraid to challenge hitters, which can get him into trouble. He impressed Manny Acta during a September call-up; while he could use a little more time in Triple-A, he should be up to stay very soon.
2008 The hero of Holland's World Baseball Classic appearance after no-hitting Panama, this flying Dutchman (Cura?aoan, in point of fact) might share Bert Blyleven's fly-ball tendencies, but the comparison ends there. He's had persistent location problems and becomes overreliant on his low-90s fastball. Improving command of his off-speed stuff would make a big difference as far as his surviving the jump to Double-A, but his durability and velocity give him some upside.
2007 `Dutch ace` sounds like a cheap brand of rotgut or a particularly nasty cigarette, but Martis put himself on prospect radars with a fine performance in the World Baseball Classic, shutting out Panama over seven innings. He`s a stringbean with reliable low-90s heat and a hard curve. Once he masters a changeup, he might start fooling more people, but he needs to learn to work lower in the zone. Thrown to the Nats in exchange for Mike Stanton at the deadline, the native of the Dutch Antilles immediately became one of the best prospects in the organization. He won`t be pitching in Double-A by his 20th birthday, but he joins Balester to give the organization a pair of young, hard-throwing tyros.

2010-01-28 14:00:00 (link to chat)Hi CK - Love it! Any prospects that you have unexplained affinities for?
(iorg34 from Minny)
Todd Frazier, because the bat will play. I find myself hoping Zack Cozart gets taken seriously, given that Paul Janish isn't really a solution, and I'm interested in how Tommy Manzella pans out. It's hard not to like Scott Sizemore and Alex Avila for the Tigers. I'm interested in seeing how Jose Ceda's comeback goes. I think this is the year for Brandon Wood, or at least I hope so. I root for Hank Conger. I'm more fond of Ian Desmond and Shairon Martis than probably makes sense. (Christina Kahrl)
2009-06-08 14:00:00 (link to chat)Through 55 games: 2009 Nats: 15-40, 1962 Mets: 16-39. Do you think that the Nationals will finish worse than the 62 Mets?
(James from Washington)
No. That 15-40 mark overstates how bad they are due to the early-season bullpen meltdowns. With a strong offense, some turnover in the rotation (I like Shairon Martis a lot) and regression by the pen, they'll be close to a .400 team the rest of the way. (Joe Sheehan)
