051909-171 shairon martis.JPGShairon Martis led off the 2009 season with an impressive 5-0 run over his first seven starts. This included a complete game win over St. Louis on May 2 where he struck out six, walked one and allowed five hits.

Martis has been a strong pitcher, even from a young age. As a member of the Netherlands 2006 World Baseball Classic team, Martis pitched the only no-hitter in WBC history against Panama. After originally being drafted by San Francisco, the Nationals acquired him in a trade for Mike Stanton in 2006. He made his Major League debut for the Nationals on September 4, 2008 at 21 years, five month and six days old.

While he finished the 2009 Major League season with a winning record, the record was more indicative of the production from the offense during the games he started (6.48 RSA in his first seven starts) than his ability to shutdown opposing lineups. Martis had some mechanical issues throughout the season that led to a Minor League demotion

Martis improved in the Minor Leagues, increasing his K/BB to 2.22 and lowering his ERA to 4.96. At 22, he is still one of the youngest pitchers with Major League experience and has a bright future.
