Martinez is having yet another elite fantasy season, and there are fewer hitters in the game more capable of producing big-time batting average, power, and run production numbers.

Following back-to-back seasons hitting over .300 with more than 40 home runs, Martinez's season has felt pedestrian. Despite batting .308/.384/.557 with 28 home runs through 117 games, he has actually underperformed elite Statcast numbers (.312 xBA,.410 xwOBA). Having predictably heating up with a 152 wRC+ after the All-Star break, he's still a stud, just maybe top 15 instead of top five.

If you are hoping to make some noise in the trade market, you may want to put in a feeler for J.D. who has been among the most unlucky hitters in terms of batted balls this season. While his production looks down, he is actually hitting the ball just as well as he has the past few seasons.
