Get to Know Him - J.D. Martinez

Prospect of the Day - J.D. Martinez

As terrible as the Houston Astros have been this season, a couple of prospects have made great strides in proving themselves to be Big Leaguers.  Unfortunately for them it was not Brett Wallace and Chris Johnson but that is not what we are talking about.  J.D. Martinez has done nothing but hit down in the minors.  A career .342 hitter, Martinez hit 40 doubles last season over A and AA ball, along with 18 HRs and 89 RBI. 

Since his call up at the end of July, after Hunter Pence was traded to the Phillies, Martinez has hit 3 HRs and has 11 RBI in just 32 AB!  5 of his 9 hits have gone for XBH and he has also scored 6 times in 9 games.  If you need a little boost of offense, Martinez is absolutely worth a shot!
