Description: The Astros have optioned outfielder J.D. Martinez to Triple-A Oklahoma City.
Insight: Martinez had 395 at-bats for the Astros last season and hit .241 with a .685 OPS. It looks like Houston will go with Chris Carter (16 HRs in 2012) in left field, Justin Maxwell in center and Fernando Martinez in right.

Description: Astros outfielder J.D. Martinez is dealing with a sore shoulder and will be out of the lineup for the third straight game Tuesday against the Reds.
Insight: Martinez has 50 RBIs but his .241 average and .705 OPS make him a marginal fantasy fill-in at best.
 
7/23/2012 7:05:00 PM
Description: The Astros are playing on Monday night but left fielder J.D. Martinez won't be. It's just a regular day of rest for the 24-year-old.

Insight: Martinez (.230, 9 HR, 41 RBIs) has homered in two straight games and four times in June. However, he doesn't offer much upside unless you're desperate for RBI production.

Cold5/14/2012 4:30:00 PM

Insight: Martinez hit .282 in April with three homers and 19 RBI, but since the calendar turned to May he's batting just .038 with a .146 OPS. He certainly should not be in any fantasy lineups at this point.

Description: Miami native J.D. Martinez hit his third homer of the season on Friday, the first home run at Marlins Park.
