Los Angeles Dodgers

In 1984, Martínez was signed as an amateur free agent by the Los Angeles Dodgers. He made his MLB debut in the summer of 1988 as the youngest player in the National League, at 20 years old. In Martínez's first game, the Dodgers defeated the San Francisco Giants in 11 innings. He pitched in a total of nine games that season as the Dodgers went on to win the 1988 World Series, giving Martínez his first and only World Series championship ring. The following season, he pitched 15 games as a starter, going 6-4 with a 3.19 ERA. Martínez had his breakout season in 1990, when he struck out 18 batters in a game on June 4 and led the majors with 12 complete games. He ended up winning 20 games and earning an All-Star selection. Martínez continued his success in 1991, winning 17 games and posting a 3.27 ERA. In the 1992 season, he went 8-11 with a 4.00 ERA, and in 1993 went 10-12 with a 3.44 ERA. During that time, Martínez's brother Pedro began his MLB career as a relief pitcher for the Dodgers.

In the strike-shortened 1994 season, Martínez went 12-7 with a 3.97 ERA. He went on to have one of his most memorable seasons in 1995, as he won 17 games and pitched a no-hitter against the Florida Marlins in July. The Dodgers won the National League Western Division title before falling to the Cincinnati Reds in the NLDS. In 1996, Martínez went 15-6 with a 3.42 ERA. The following season, he posted a 10-5 record with a 3.64 ERA. Martínez spent his final season with the Dodgers in 1998. However, early in the season, he suffered a torn rotator cuff and torn cartilage, which limited him to just 15 games. Martínez finished his 11-season Dodgers tenure with a 123-77 record, 3.45 ERA, and 1,314 strikeouts.
