Martinez is slashing .333/.379/.579 with five homers, 19 RBI, eight walks, and 31 strikeouts this season. Perhaps one of the most feared hitters in baseball, the 34-year-old has gone 12-for-24 with two homers over his last six games alone.
Red Sox designated hitter J.D. Martine went 2-for-3 with a single, solo homer, strikeout, and two walks against the Rangers on Saturday evening. Boston ultimately defeated Texas by an astounding score of 11-3.
Martinez is one of the most dominant hitters in MLB. He currently owns a 15-game hitting streak and has reached base safely in all 26 contests this season. In total, he is slashing .317/.369/.545 with four homers, 16 RBI, eight walks, and 29 strikeouts. He should be rostered in 100 percent of fantasy baseball leagues.
Red Sox designated hitter J.D. Martinez finished 2-for-4 with two singles, two strikeouts, and an RBI against the Braves on Wednesday evening. Boston ultimately fell to Atlanta by a score of 5-3.
Martinez is slashing .298/.337/.500 with three homers, 15 RBI, five walks, and 27 strikeouts this season. Despite his knack for going down on strikes, he has shown an ability to also put the ball in play at a high level. The veteran slugger should be rostered in all fantasy baseball leagues.
Boston Red Sox DH J.D. Martinez went 1-for-5 with three strikeouts during a loss to the Angels on Wednesday.
Martinez was a near non-factor in the lineup on Wednesday. The star hitter struck out three times but did manage to get one hit to extend his hitting streak to seven consecutive games. He and his .309 batting average will look to get revenge during a day game versus Ohtani and the Angels on Thursday.
J.D. Martinez is back in the lineup for the Red Sox' game against the Orioles on Sunday. He is batting fourth and starting at DH.
Martinez was in Saturday's lineup before being scratched, and he has missed several games with an adductor strain. The concern is that Martinez may be pushing himself a bit because of the Red Sox' struggles on offense, so fantasy managers will need to monitor his health and performance Sunday and going forward before they can have confidence that he's fully healthy.
