In the summer of 2008, Martínez joined Portugal's Rio Ave, although he spent the season with its junior side. Then he left for Peñarol, hoping to gain more first-team experience, but returned home after a few weeks, joining Real España. On August 2012, he signed for Motagua.[1]

Martinez made his senior debut for Honduras in a September 2010 friendly match against El Salvador and has, as of January 2013, earned a total of 2 caps, scoring no goals.
