Just like Ellsbury, Martinez hasn’t been healthy, so it is hard to blame him for his lack of production.
Nevertheless, Martinez had a 59.0 ADP in drafts according to Fantasy Pros, so owners who took him late in the sixth round in 10-team leagues have to be disappointed.
Martinez had a career-year last season, slashing .335/.409/.565 with 32 home runs and 103 RBI. He led the league in on-base percentage and OPS (.974).
This year has been a different story. In 130 at-bats, Martinez is hitting .216/.308/.270 with just one homer. Hopefully, he can return healthy and turn his season around.
