Red Sox outfielder/designated hitter J.D. Martinez is out of the lineup for the fourth straight day Thursday due to back and illness issues.

Fantasy Impact:

Martinez was initially out due to an illness, but it was reported yesterday that he was also dealing with a sore back and would likely miss Thursday's afternoon game. Look for an update on his status on Friday as it sounds like he could be returning to the lineup for the weekend series against the Astros.
