Hot6/25/2014 9:27:00 AM
Description: Tigers outfielder J.D. Martinez' outstanding month continued Tuesday at Texas. He went 2-for-5 with a double, a homer and two RBI.
Insight: Martinez has hit .438 with four doubles, five home runs and 13 RBI in his last eight games. He's been starting due to Torii Hunter's hamstring injury but could replace Rajai Davis as the team's starting left fielder against right-handers when Hunter returns. Martinez has been especially potent against right-handers, hitting .395 with six homers against them compared to 3-for-32 (.094) against southpaws, while Davis is better against lefties.

Insight: Martinez has gone 17-for-34 (.500) with nine extra-base hits and 11 RBI during a 10-game hitting streak. He is likely to take over the starting left field job from Rajai Davis when Torii Hunter returns.
 
Hot6/18/2014 6:05:00 PM
Description: Tigers outfielder J.D. Martinez has gone 13-for-31 (.419) with four doubles, two homers and seven RBI in his last eight games.
Insight: When Torii Hunter returns, we may see Martinez become Detroit's starting left fielder against right-handers over Rajai Davis, who hits better against southpaws. Martinez is 27-for-68 (.397) with nine doubles, four homers and 17 RBI against righties this season.
 
Hot6/18/2014 9:14:00 AM
Description: Tigers outfielder J.D. Martinez went 3-for-4 Tuesday in a loss to Kansas City.
Insight: The loss dropped Detroit out of first place. Martinez, who is filling in at right field for the injured Torii Hunter (hamstring cramps), is currently on a seven-game hitting streak. If you're looking for help in the outfield this week (Hunter is hoping to return this weekend), Martinez (.290, 4 HR, 20 RBI) could be a decent option.
