Notes 
 It's important not to overreact to the opening week of the MLB season, but sometimes you can just tell certain things. JD Martinez appears to be back. Not only are the counting stats there, but the under-the-radar numbers are returning too. Earlier this week JDM had multiple batted balls over 110 mph for the first time since April 2018.
