  • Red Sox's J.D. Martinez: Scratched with back spasms

    Martinez was scratched from the lineup for Sunday's game against the Mariners due to back spasms, Chad Jennings of The Athletic reports.

    Martinez was slated to start Sunday before being scratched a few minutes before first pitch. The severity of the injury is unclear, but he'll have Monday's scheduled off day to be evaluated before potentially missing additional time. Christian Arroyo will serve as Boston's designated hitter in his place.

  • Red Sox's J.D. Martinez: Tallies four hits, three runs

    Martinez went 4-for-5 with a double and three runs scored Thursday against the Mariners.

    Martinez benefitted from a big offensive performance by the Red Sox -- and Trevor Story in particular -- to score multiple runs for the third time this season. It also marked his third multi-hit effort in his last four starts, during which he's hit one home run while driving in four and scoring five runs. Overall, Martinez has a .344/.383/.582 line across 133 plate appearances on the campaign.

    Martinez launched his fifth home run of the season in the fifth inning, but by that time, the Red Sox were down by 10 runs. The DH extended his batting streak to 19 games, during which Martinez has gone 29-for-75 (.387) with four home runs, nine doubles, 13 RBI and nine runs scored.

  • Red Sox's J.D. Martinez: Keeps streaks alive

    Martinez went 2-for-4 with a walk, a double and two runs scored in Friday's 7-1 win over the Rangers.

    Martinez's sixth-inning single extended a hitting streak to 15 consecutive games and a season-long on-base streak to 25. He's shown no sign of slowing down at age 34, posting a slash of .306/.349/.510 with 14 extra-base hits, 15 RBI and 12 runs scored over 106 plate appearances.

  • Red Sox's J.D. Martinez: Goes yard again

    Martinez went 2-for-4 with a solo home run in Tuesday's 4-0 win over the Angels.

    Martinez launched an eighth-inning bomb over the wall in left for his third homer and second in as many games. He's dealt with a nagging groin injury, which no longer appears to be bothersome. Boston's designated hitter is 5-for-9 with five RBI over the last two games.

  • Red Sox's J.D. Martinez: Clubs late grand slam

    Martinez went 3-for-5 with a grand slam during Sunday's 9-5 loss to the Orioles.

    Martinez missed the past three games with adductor discomfort, but he returned to the lineup with a bang Sunday. The veteran slugger was already 2-for-4 on the day with the Red Sox trailing by eight runs in the ninth inning, and he came through with a 364-foot homer to right with the bases juiced to make the final score more respectable. The fact Martinez wasn't subbed out in the midst of a blowout is an encouraging sign for the injury, so he should be back in the lineup Tuesday following Boston's scheduled day off Monday.

  • Red Sox's J.D. Martinez: Returns from three-game absence

    Martinez (groin) will serve as the Red Sox's designated hitter and cleanup batter in Sunday's game against the Orioles, Chris Cotillo of The Springfield Republican reports.

    Adductor discomfort has relegated Martinez to the bench for each of Boston's last three games, but he'll make his way back into the starting nine for the series finale in Baltimore after showing improvement while he was idle. Christian Arroyo -- who had served as Boston's DH for both of the previous two contests -- will head back to the bench to make room in the lineup for Martinez.

    Manager Alex Cora expects Martinez (groin) to start Sunday, Chris Cotillo of The Springfield Republican reports.

    Martinez was scratched from the lineup for Saturday's game, but Cora's comments -- and the fact Martinez will be available to pinch hit Saturday -- suggest that was only a precautionary measure.

  • Red Sox's J.D. Martinez: Remains on bench Friday

    Martinez (groin) is not in the lineup for Friday's game against the Orioles, Chris Cotillo of The Springfield Republican reports.

    The veteran slugger aggravated an adductor injury Wednesday and will sit out for the second straight game Friday, though he's expected to be back in the lineup for Saturday's contest. Martinez has a modest four-game hit streak during which he's gone 6-for-15 with four doubles, two RBI and a run scored, but he'll need to wait at least another day before attempting to extend it.

  • Red Sox's J.D. Martinez: Aggravates adductor injury

    Manager Alex Cora said Martinez was excluded from the lineup for Thursday's game against the Blue Jays after he aggravated an adductor injury in Wednesday's 7-1 win, Ian Browne of MLB.com reports.

    Martinez, who missed four straight games last week with the core-muscle injury, experienced renewed adductor discomfort while pulling into second base on a double during his 2-for-4 performance Wednesday. Though Cora noted that the Red Sox will act conservatively with Martinez while he manages the injury, the 34-year-old is expected to be back in the lineup at some point during the team's weekend series in Baltimore.

  • Red Sox's J.D. Martinez: Remains idle Sunday

    Martinez (groin) is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Rays.

    A sore left adductor will keep Martinez on the bench for the fourth game in a row, though the Red Sox haven't yet indicated that the issue is something that will result in him moving to the 10-day injured list. Ideally, fantasy managers will get more clarity on Martinez's situation before the Red Sox begin a seven-game week Monday in Toronto.
