St Louis Cardinals pitcher, Carlos Martinez has been forced to remove a number of posts from his twitter wall after it was reported that they contained explicit material.

Deadspin.com yesterday reported that Martinez's twitter wall included a vast amount of pornographic images which the baseball star had retweeted.

The St Louis Post Dispatch today reported that Martinez's coach Mike Matheny spoke with the player yesterday and also addressed the team about their use of social media.

 The Post Dispatch reports: "The Cardinals and Matheny learned of the content of his "favorites" on Monday and attempted to contact him to remove them. Martinez had already left the ballpark by that time. They were unable to reach the pitcher until that evening, after Deadspin.com pushed Martinez's "favorites" page to a larger audience."

Matheny also said that the incident was 'a distraction' for the pitcher. Martinez appears to have now cleared up the wall which is now looking a bit more PG. However there does not appear to be any tweets after the 3rd of January which begs the question as to quite what the pitcher was doing between then and now.

Martinez has two wins and one loss after being called up to the Cardinals last season. He boasted an ERA of 5.08 through 21 games.
