The National League Central may very well be the most competitive division in all of baseball this season. With the exception of Pittsburgh, any team in that division has an opportunity to walk away winning it (sorry Pirates fans). St. Louis Cardinals pitcher Carlos Martinez has shown impressive movement this spring and the rest of the NL Central should be alarmed.
As displayed in the video, Martinez's curveball seems as if it is in midseason form, dropping all the way to Andrew Stevenson's ankles. His slider also looks scary as well as he has it bending into the zone after the pitch seemed to be heading towards the inside part of the plate.
If Martinez can maintain good command of these pitches in the regular season, he will become a problem not only for the NL Central but the MLB as a whole.
