St. Louis Cardinals pitcher Carlos Martinez is the subject of a $1.5 million lawsuit filed by an ex-girlfriend who allegedly tested positive for an infection days after they broke off a relationship. The 24-year-old starter from the Dominican Republic met the woman in 2012 and had an on-and-off relationship (literally) for the next two years. They reportedly had sex again on December 16, 2015. Two days later the woman, who has not been identified, fell ill and tested positive for a STD. While a very good pitcher, Martinez is a career .169 hitter who appears to make it past Third base regularly off the field.
