Houlton down, Martinez activated

A little bird just told me that Ramon Martinez is coming off the disabled list and will be in the lineup today (hey, anything to try to get this offense jumpstarted, huh?). To make room, the club is optioning D.J. Houlton back to Las Vegas, leaving them with an 11-man staff on the final day before the break. I wouldn’t be shocked, though, if they go back to 12 before long, because they begin the second half with games on 17 straight days. Houlton gave up a couple of bombs in his three appearances since coming up, but he is a much, much better pitcher than he was two years ago, when he was last up here.
