Latest Update J.D. Martinez went 3-for-4 with a double and a run scored in the Tigers win against the White Sox on Wednesday. Wed Sep, 24, 09:00 PM
Is a talented batter who can hit for both average and power, especially at lower levels. Can also be a solid defensive outfielder. Produces runs when he's right.
Flaws: : Needs to prove he can hit for a consistent batting average at the highest level. Isn't much of a base-stealer. Can be injury-prone. Isn't great against right-handed pitching.
His breakout season continues. The Detroit outfielder is having himself a career year, as his three-hit performance today raised his average to .320 on the year. He's also swatted 23 home runs to go with 76 RBIs and six stolen bases. The Tigers will need him to hit in the playoffs if they want to go deep into October.Analyst: Colby Conway
Martinez has been a pleasant surprise for the Tigers this season, though his .388 BABIP is at least partially responsible.Analyst: Steve Pimental
Martinez has been a beacon of light in the heart of the Tigers' lineup this year. After Tuesday night's performance, he is batting .313 with 23 home runs and 75 RBIs. It is safe to say that he will have a job next season.Analyst: David Kerr
Martinez continues his hot hitting, raising his season line to a robust .310/.355/.562 with 22 home runs. Not bad for a guy who was cast off this spring by one of the league's worst teams, the Astros. Analyst: Spencer Silva
