Martinez had a disastrous 2020 season, during which he slashed just .213/.291/.389 and hit seven home runs. Martinez simply didn't hit the ball nearly as hard as he used to, and hit a ton of fly balls, the combination of which helped to drain his batting average significantly. There's a ton to dislike about last year, but given that Martinez has talked about how much he relies on watching video in-game, and his inability to do so last year because of COVID-19 protocols, it seems likely that you can write off last year to a slump that didn't have time to end. He'll be eligible at utility only, but there's a massive opportunity for profit if you are willing to largely look past 2020.

Fantasy Impact

In 2018 and 2019, J.D. Martinez mashed with power, counting stats, and a high batting average. Then in 2020, Martinez struggled with seven home runs, 22 runs 27 RBI, and one steal with a .213 batting average. We now have reasons explaining his struggles from Martinez. Expect a bounceback season in 2021.
