Brett Martin Makes Major League Debut with Rangers

April 20, 2019 - Texas League (TL) - Frisco RoughRiders News Release

FRISCO, Texas - Left-handed pitcher Brett Martin made his Major League debut with the Texas Rangers Friday, becoming the 152nd former RoughRiders player to reach the big leagues.

In his debut Friday at Globe Life Park, Martin worked a perfect ninth inning, inducing a trio of groundouts to tame Astros hitters Michael Brantley, Carlos Correa and Yuli Gurriel.

Martin pitched with the RoughRiders in 2018, opening the season as a starter before converting to a relief role. The native of Morristown, Tennessee began this season with Triple-A Nashville, where he allowed one run in eight innings of work for the Sounds.

The RoughRiders round out a weekend series at Dr Pepper Ballpark tonight at 7:05 with Multicultural Festival, "The Easiest Easter Egg Hunt Ever," and Sky-Lit Saturday, presented by Lexus. Single-game tickets, season ticket memberships and group hospitality packages are all on-sale for all remaining games at Dr Pepper Ballpark this season, which runs through August 25.
