I understand about Wacha. He needs to get that curve ball up to the major league level and work on location.
Martinez's upside demands he be given a shot to succeed at the ML level. Now, not later.
Martinez' breaking pitches are lethal, but he doesn't spot them with precision yet. Bringing him up while having him do that is a risky proposition.
