Martinez is entering her third season with GSW. Martinez wrapped up her collegiate playing career in 2009 with the University of Arizona where she went 11-4 with a 2.90 ERA her senior season. She made 38 appearances and tossed five complete games her final year, splitting time as a starter and a reliever for UA. Martinez struck out 100 batters in 103 2/3 innings of work while posting team lows in walks (27) and opponents' batting average (.258).
The La Habra, Calif. native picked up wins against a trio of top 15 teams in 2009, including Arizona State (No. 5), California (No. 14) and Stanford (No. 8). The victory over Stanford came in a must-win Game 2 of the Super Regional en route to the Wildcats' appearance in the NCAA Women's College World Series. UA finished the season with a 46-17 record.
In March of 2010 Martinez began a six-month stint overseas playing professionally for Unione Fermana of the Italian Softball League.
