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.
Martinez's RBI double came in the bottom of the 9th off Baltimore closer Zach Britton. After the double, Britton regained composure, struck out Bryan Holaday, intentionally walked Nick Castellanos, and induced a Hernan Perez game-ending double play. Martinez had a breakout season, which ended with him tallying five RBI's in three postseason games.Analyst: Colby Conway

Martinez started the season in Triple-A and blew up for Detroit this year, so at this point, his home run wasn't much of a surprise. Nevertheless, it is nice to see that Martinez's success in the regular season is continuing in the postseason.Analyst: David Kerr
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
