Jose Martinez crushes third homer Sunday

Jose Martinez went 3-for-5 with a two-run homer and two runs scored in the Cardinals' 10-6 loss to the Pirates on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact

Martinez now has a robust .339 AVG on the season, and raised his ISO to .139. More power should be coming, as Martinez has a .556 xSLG and is pulverizing the ball with a 90.5 MPH average exit velocity. With every day playing time, Martinez should be a valuable fantasy asset all season long.

Jose Martinez hits solo homer in loss Saturday

Jose Martinez went 2-for-5 with a solo home run and two runs scored in the Cardinals' 6-5 loss to the Cubs on Saturday.

Fantasy Impact

Martinez has been great source of batting average this season, but it was nice to see a little power from him. The home run was just his second on the year and he raised his ISO to .148. His 25% flyball rate will limit his power upside, but his 29.4% line drive will ensure that his batting average stays comfortably around .300. That's enough to make Martinez a valuable asset in fantasy, especially now that he's getting regular playing time.

Jose Martinez drives in two versus Washington

Jose Martinez went 2-for-3 with a double, a walk, two RBI, and a run scored as the Cardinals beat the Nationals on Wednesday.

Fantasy Impact

Martinez has been fantastic in limited playing time this season, batting .375 with one homer, 15 RBI, and a .895 OPS. He has more value in daily lineup leagues where fantasy owners can sub him and out depending on whether or not he is starting.

Jose Martinez drives in a run Sunday

Jose Martinez went 2-for-3 with a double, a single, and an RBI in the Cardinals' 5-2 win over the Reds on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact

Martinez has played the last two games despite the return of Harrison Bader, and hopefully his hot hitting secured regular playing time for Martinez. He now has a .343 AVG on the year, and with a 24% line drive rate and .326 xBA, Martinez looks like a true talent .300 hitter.

Jose Martinez hits first home run Friday

Jose Martinez went 3-for-5 with a solo home run in the Cardinals' 5-4 loss to the Mets on Friday.

Fantasy Impact

Martinez's home run may have come off Jason Vargas, but it still counts on the stat sheet. Martinez should be in line for more playing time due to injuries to Harrison Bader and Tyler O'Neill, and could be a decent source of batting average while playing every day. He's at least worth keeping an eye on during this opportunity.
