Available for cheap because of playing-time concerns last year, Martinez immediately hit his way into a regular role. It took longer this year. Paul Goldschmidt has first base on lock, and the Cardinals didn't want to expose Martinez's limited defense in the outfield. Injuries to Harrison Bader and Tyler O'Neill gave him a chance, and he hit to well to take out of the lineup. The career .313/.375/.476 hitter is a tremendous source of batting average whenever given the chance, so ride his hot bat as long as St. Louis decides to do so.
