J.D. Martinez (back) returns to lineup on Monday

J.D. Martinez (back) has returned to Boston’s lineup for Monday’s game versus the Rangers.

Fantasy Impact

Martinez missed the entire weekend series versus the Rays after leaving Thursday’s game with back spasms. Martinez dealt with a similar issue last season so Boston was understandably being careful with their top slugger. Martinez is the team’s DH and batting third versus Mike Minor on Monday.

J.D. Martinez (back) hopes to avoid injured list

Red Sox manager Alex Cora says the team is hopeful J.D. Martinez doesn't need to end on the IL with back spasms.

Fantasy Impact

Martinez exited Thursday's game with the issue and hasn't played since. He also dealt with back spasms last year, though this current issue has yet to be considered overly serious. It'll be telling to see whether or not he's in the lineup on Monday versus the Rangers.
