Carlos Martínez is a very good pitcher. It is part of the reason we here at Viva El Birdos adore him so much. It is not the only reason, mind you, but a reason. Carlos seems to improve his craft ever year and this season he has blown past his prior season high in strikeouts of 184, set in 2015. It seems likely he will continue to add to this year’s total of 200 on Friday. Adding about ten or twenty more on Friday would be very nice indeed.
