’01 Spinners Catcher to Pitch in Futures Game
You may remember Edgar Martinez from his season as the Lowell Spinners catcher in 2001.
After a conversion to pitching, Martinez (2-3, 3.15 ERA) is lighting it up in Double-A Portland, earning him a spot on the All-Star Futures Game roster. With 39 strikeouts in 40.0 innings of work and eight saves, Martinez is one of Portland’s best players.
