Latest Update Big day for VMart as Tigers win Mon Sep, 01, 09:46 PM
Boasts great run-producing ability, along with great plate discipline and power. He hits righties and lefties with equal proficiency. Can still catch on occasion, as well as play first base.
Flaws: : Injuries have forced him to DH mostly. His game-calling skills were never his strong suit. He also struggles to throw base-runners out with consistency while behind the plate.
Martinez continued his hot streak today with two more extra-base hits with one being a home run. Martinez is providing his fantasy owners with consistent offensive production and has the statistics of a top round pick. Martinez is hitting .329 on the year with 28 long balls to go with 90 RBIs. The Tigers will be hoping for more offensive performances like today's to make the playoffs.Analyst: Colby Conway
Martinez has been hitting the ball very well in the month of August, slashing .354/.448/.558 with six home runs and 29 RBI over his last 113 at-bats. He has already set a new career-high in home runs at the age of 35, with a chance of getting to that point in RBI production as well if he keeps up his current pace. Analyst: Matthew Beck
Martinez continues to be a force in the middle of the Tigers lineup, now slashing .327/.396/.555 with 26 home runs and 85 RBI through 452 at-bats in 2014. What is even more impressive is the fact that he has more walks (54) than strikeouts (38), which is something that is almost unheard of at this point in the season. Although his power stroke is down in the second half (only 5 HR over last 147 AB), he remains a great fantasy option down the stretch. Analyst: Matthew Beck
Martinez tied his career-high home run total Sunday, smashing his 25th dinger of the 2014 season. If he hits one more, he'll tie his combined home run total from 2011-2013, 26. There's a chance Martinez will be overdrafted in 2015 given the massive power output, but don't expect him to hit 20+ home runs again in his age-36 season. Analyst: Spencer Silva
