David Martinez up, too!

In the wake of the Max Stassi promotion, we find that OKC pitcher David Martinez has been promoted after Wade LeBlanc got designated for assignment after his latest ineffective appearance last night.

Martinez, who just turned 26 a couple of weeks ago, has been in the organization since 2005, making him the longest tenured Astro (UPDATE: Brandon Barnes was drafted in 2005). He has made two starts for OKC, throwing 10IP, 9H/5ER, 9K:9BB (as many walks as he had in 76IP from June 2-August 6 at Corpus).
