Astros dump disappointing J.D. Martinez
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Outfielder J.D. Martinez, who has been a perennial disappointment since a promising start to his major league career with the Astros in 2011, has been waived by the team. The 26-year-old compounded his problems with a poor exhibition season.

Martinez still boasts too much potential to stay unemployed long. He is likely to be picked up by a team that needs young, talented outfielders and have the patience to groom him.

J.D. Martinez makes serious changes to offensive game
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Astros outfielder J.D. Martinez said he spent the offseason overhauling his offensive game, according to the Houston Chronicle.

"I changed everything. Everything," Martinez said. "From my hands to my feet my leg kick my stride my load -- just everything."

Martinez, who is trying to earn his way back onto the 40-man roster, said the overall goal was to keep his bat in the hitting zone longer. 

"I was looking at video and noticed it through watching Jason (Castro)," Martinez said. "Watching Castro and how he changed his hands from two years ago to last year, and the adjustment that he made. It was kind of the same time Ryan Braun got popped for PEDs, and the whole Ryan Braun scandal was going on and all his highlights were showing up on TV.

"And I saw him and I was like, ‘Woah, am I the only one who doesn’t know this type of deal?’ And I kept going on the Internet and looking, and looking and looking, and I would look at mine and I would see the difference. How long they were in the zone, and how long my bat was in the zone."

Brett Wallace, J.D. Martinez still in good standing with Astros
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Astros manager Bo Porter said Tuesday first baseman Brett Wallace and outfielder J.D. Martinez are not in any sort of last-leg situation with the team, according to the Houston Chronicle.

"I think you can look at Brett Wallace’s situation, J.D. Martinez’s situation and from a prospect standpoint, both of those guys have had success at the major-league level," Porter said. "But it just goes to show how quick things can turn at the major-league level. …. I believe both of those guys will have bounce-back years."
