Is a Long Term deal in the future for Carlos?







With what I would thought would  be  a  strong possibility of Carlos Martinez getting an invite to the All Star Game There seems to be some talk of a long term deal. According to Jon Heyman….Cardinals are .a long-term deal for rising young right-hander Carlos Martinez,though there’s no indication of any serious talks between the two sides from his report. Martinez is a logical extension candidate as a 24-year-old former top prospect that has made good on that hype with a 2.97 ERA across his past 282 innings. However, he’s also on track to hit arbitration for the first time this offseason, which does eliminate some of the urgency to take a club-friendly deal from Martinez’s camp. That, of course, doesn’t mean that an agreement can’t be reached, but Martinez is already in line for a sizable payday this winter, and buying out free-agent seasons would be expensive considering the platform he’s in the midst of building.
