    • Martinez has struggled in July, hitting just .156 (10-for-64) with a slash line of .156/.236/.313 heading into Saturday's game. VMart has three home runs this month, but two were hit on July 1. In fact, that day was his most recent multi-hit game. Martinez is in the line-up to hit and only hit, but this slump has made him a liability in the clean-up role. Slumps can be expected, but he's well past 30 with a history of serious injuries. There's still gas in the proverbial tank, but right now, you should let him pick up a few splinters on your bench while you wait this out.

    • Martinez went 1-for-3 with a solo homer and a walk Saturday at the Blue Jays. Martinez's 17th blast of the year broke a 2-2 tie in the eighth inning, and ended up being the winning run for the Tigers. He's only collected seven hits in 34 at-bats this month, and he's now slashing .309/.357/.521 on the season.

    • Martinez went 2-for-5 with a pair of three-run homers Friday at the Rays. Martinez's fifteenth blast of the year extended the Tigers' lead to seven runs in the seventh inning, and his second bomb of the night put some extra icing on the cake in a blowout win. He's now hit safely in each of his last five games, and he's slashing .324/.369/.543 on the season.

    • Martinez went 2-for-4 with two solo home runs in Sunday's loss to the Indians. It was the first time he'd gone yard since his three-homer game on June 16, and Martinez now has 14 homers on the season. More distressingly, he didn't have a single RBI in the nine games between power outbursts. With J.D. Martinez (elbow) potentially out until August, the Tigers will need more consistent production from their DH.
