|J.D. Martinez hits first homer since recall|
|by Jack Moore | CBSSports.com|
(5/15/13) Astros outfielder J.D. Martinez homered in the club's 7-5 victory Wednesday against Detroit.
It was Martinez's first home run since returning from the minor leagues May 7. Martinez is struggling with strikeouts -- he has eight in 24 at-bats since the return -- but the power has been there. He has four doubles to go with the home run.
Martinez is hitting .246/.274/.478 this season.
|Bo Porter names three everyday outfielders |
|by Adam Moore | CBSSports.com|
(5/13/13) Astros manager Bo Porter said J.D. Martinez, Robbie Grossman and Jimmy Paredes will be the team's regular three starters in the outfield, MLB.com reports. Porter had been rotating Trevor Crowe and Brandon Barnes in the outfield over the past few weeks.
"They're going to get the bulk of the playing time," Porter said, "so that I, as a manager, can make a definitive decision as a manager to answer the question: Can this guy or can that guy play every day at the Major League level?"
|J.D. Martinez worth a look in AL-only|
|by Nando Di Fino | Senior Fantasy Writer|
(5/6/13) J.D. Martinez is likely headed back to the Astros Monday, and even though he has a .244 average on the season, he could be a nice surprise going forward.
Martinez had two home runs and a steal in 32 at-bats this season, and most of his production came in the nine games before he went on the DL. Martinez has a stellar minor-league track record, with a .333 average and .928 OPS in 1,228 at-bats. In each of his three minor-league seasons before starting 2012 with the Astros, Martinez hit double-digits in home runs and averaged 30 doubles despite getting more than 350 at-bats just once.
While his major-league career so far has been somewhat nondescript, Martinez has the skill to make an impact in batting average, with a double-digit flirtation in home runs. Owned in 4 percent of leagues, he should at least be considered for a fourth or fifth outfield spot in AL-only format.
|J.D. Martinez coming back to Houston|
|by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com|
(5/6/13) Astros outfielder J.D. Martinez is headed back to Houston.
Martinez was slated to start Monday's Double-A game in Corpus Christi, but was scratched about 30 minutes prior to the game. In 45 at-bats this season, Martinez is hitting .244/.271/.444.
|Astros place J.D. Martinez on 15-day DL|
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
(4/20/13) The Astros announced Saturday that outfielder J.D. Martinez, who left Friday's game with a sprained right knee, has been placed on the 15-day disabled list.
Martinez homered Friday before being replaced, leaving him with a .244/.271/.444 line and two home runs in 48 plate appearances.
|J.D. Martinez opened some eyes in Fantasy during his callup in 2011 but was one of the bigger disappointments a season ago. He broke camp as the starting left fielder and batted .282 with a .449 slugging percentage over the first month of the season. But it all went downhill from there. He hit just .222 over the next 80 games and was optioned to the minors. Martinez was recalled after rosters expended and ended the season with 11 home runs, 55 RBI and a .241 average. The 25-year-old is no lock for a starting gig heading into 2013 and based on his numbers last season, has minimal Fantasy value at this point. Leave Martinez for AL-only formats on Draft Day.
