JD Martinez: New Swing or Something Else?

JD Martinez has changed his swing and appears to have become a whole new hitter. The new JD Martinez has been a huge part of Tigers offense; he ranks first on the team in ISO and second in wOBA. In the month of June, Martinez was third in the Majors in wOBA behind only Mike Trout and Andrew McCutchen. Rewind three months to late March, and JD Martinez was being cut by the Astros...

Detroit Tigers: Introducing J.D. Martinez

Tigers call up slugger J.D. Martinez from Toledo

J.D. Martinez wasn't in the Tigers' plans at the beginning of the regular season. He has forced them to change their mind. The 26-year-old slugger, who wasn't even on Detroit's 40-man roster, was hitting .308 with 10 homers and 22 RBIs in 17 games for Toledo until the Tigers purchased his contract Monday morning. To make room for him on the 40-man roster, the Tigers moved Andy Dirks...

Rule 5 Dark Horse: J.D. Martinez

The winter meetings kick off next week in Orlando, and with it comes the tons-of-fun Rule 5 Draft.  Though the increase in its popularity has been coupled with the steady decrease of useful picks, many teams use it to take chances on bounce-back players to fill out a big league bench or bullpen.  There have not been any true impact position players taken for at least 7 years, especially...
