(7/24/14) Tigers outfielder J.D. Martinez returned to the starting lineup Thursday night against the Angels in Anaheim. Martinez missed Wednesday's game due to a quad injury. He is hitting .327 with 13 homers and 44 RBI in 208 at-bats.
|Quad ailment has J.D. Martinez sidelined Wednesday |
|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
(7/23/14) Upper quad discomfort prevented Tigers outfielder J.D. Martinez from making his appointed rounds Wednesday in Arizona.
Martinez felt a twinge after singling in the eighth inning of the Tuesday loss to the Diamondbacks. He should be considered day-to-day at this point. His torrid stretch has been interrupted by a 3-for-20 slide. Martinez has scored just one run in the last seven games and driven in none in the last four.
|No slowing J.D. Martinez down in July |
|by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com|
(7/11/14) Tigers outfielder J.D. Martinez has continued his hot-hitting ways in the month of July, as he put together another multi-hit effort in a 16-4 win over the Royals.
Four days after slugging his career-high 12th home run of the season, Martinez was held in the yard Thursday. He still managed to make his impact felt, reaching base three times and driving in three runs, while going 2 for 3 with a walk. He added a pair of runs scored in the win.
Martinez is hitting .429/.462/.829 with three home runs and nine RBI in nine July games.
|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.
