|J.D. Martinez powers Tigers to win |

(8/14/14) Tigers outfielder J.D. Martinez did much of the heavy lifting Thursday, as he drove in the team's first two runs in a 5-2 win over the Pirates.
Martinez got the Tigers on the board with his solo shot in the fifth inning, and then added on RBI on a bases-loaded walk in the following frame. He went 2 for 4 with two RBI, one run scored and one walk in the win.
Martinez has been cold throughout August, but now has six RBI in 13 games. He is still hitting just .191 in the month, bringing his season line down to .303/.348/.566.
|J.D. Martinez picks up momentum with big game Thursday |
|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
(7/31/14) The slump experienced by Tigers surprising outfielder J.D. Martinez is apparently over. He homered, singled, walked and scored twice Thursday in a defeat to the White Sox.
Martinez has rebounded from a 4-for-30 slide to slam five hits and score four runs in the last three games. He still boasts an impressive .325/.363/.605 this season.
|Though a stat machine in the minors, J.D. Martinez may have run out of opportunities in the majors. The Astros are entering the next phase of their slow rebuild, bringing in established types like Dexter Fowler to complement up-and-comers like George Springer. Players like Martinez don't really have a place on that team. Of course, he's not entirely to blame for last year's struggles. A sprained knee forced him to the DL early on, and a back contusion and sprained wrist bothered him late. Still, it's not like he's made great strides in three years on the job. At age 26, he's beginning to look like a lost cause. Between Fowler, Springer, L.J. Hoes and Robbie Grossman, Martinez will have to compete just for a reserve spot. Unless he's the talk of Kissimmee, Fla., this spring, you can ignore him on Draft Day.
