Latest Update V-Mart seeking 4-yr contract in free agency Fri Oct, 24, 04:53 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, 35, certainly has earned a big contract, after a brilliant season with the Tigers. If he's playing DH, he stands a better chance stay healthy, and could provide four solid years for a club, though teams will certainly think twice before signing a veteran through his age-39 season.

Martinez is batting .375 over the first two games of the ALDS against the Orioles with a home run and three RBI after having a career year in 2014.Analyst: Jonathan Impemba
What else did you expect from VMart? This guy had a career year at age 35 and continued his torrid hitting in the Tigers' first playoff game. He's as sure of a bet to stay hot as anyone in baseball.Analyst: David Kerr
Here is all you need to know about VMart: At age 35, he has a career high 35 home runs, he has walked 69 times and struck out just 42 times. These are absolutely remarkable numbers and just prove how gifted of a hitter that Martinez actually is. Like a fine wine, he just gets better with age.Analyst: David Kerr
