Red Sox's J.D. Martinez: Goes yard Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Martinez went 1-for-3 with a two-run home run and two walks in Wednesday's 6-5 loss to the Tigers.

The Red Sox didn't do much against Casey Mize over six innings, but they were able to get to the bullpen in the seventh, when Martinez delivered a game-tying blast. It was his league-high-tying 10th homer of the season, and his 29 RBI lead the majors. Martinez has hit safely in four of the last five contests, going 8-for-19 with three homers, eight RBI and six runs scored.

Red Sox's J.D. Martinez: Launches two homers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Martinez went 3-for-4 with two homers and four RBI in Friday's 6-1 win over Texas.

Martinez entered Friday in a mini 0-for-9 slump over his last three games but quickly put that behind him with a three-run blast in the first inning. He then cranked his second homer in the third, giving him nine long balls and 25 RBI through just 94 at-bats. The 33-year-old had seven home runs and 27 RBI in 211 at-bats during the 2020 season.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Martinez (illness) is batting third as the designated hitter Friday against the Rangers, Ian Browne of MLB.com reports.

The veteran slugger was expected to be out of Friday's starting nine after exiting Thursday's contest with migraine-related symptoms, but he won't end up being sidelined. Martinez is 0-for-9 with two walks and four strikeouts over the past three games.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Martinez (illness) will be sidelined Friday against the Rangers, Christopher Smith of The Springfield Republican reports.

Martinez was removed from Thursday's game with "migraine-related symptoms." Manager Alex Cora did not offer further details on Martinez's condition, but he did already rule the star slugger out of Friday's lineup.

Red Sox's J.D. Martinez: Removed with migraine symptoms
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Martinez was removed from Thursday's game against the Rangers with migraine-related symptoms, Pete Abraham of The Boston Globe reports.

Martinez went 0-for-1 with two walks prior to exiting the game. It's unclear whether his absence could linger further into the team's weekend series against the Rangers. Christian Arroyo entered the game in Martinez's absence.

Red Sox's J.D. Martinez: Mashes seventh homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Martinez went 2-for-4 with a solo home run in Friday's 6-5 win over the Mariners.

The veteran slugger launched his seventh homer of the year off Yusei Kikuchi in the third inning, extending his hitting streak to eight games in the process. Martinez has already matched in home run total from 2020 in 35 fewer games, and his 1.179 OPS is almost 500 points higher than last year's performance.

Red Sox's J.D. Martinez: Belts sixth homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Martinez went 3-for-5 with a solo home run, two RBI and two runs scored Monday against the White Sox.

Martinez clubbed a solo homer over the fence in left field during the second inning, increasing Boston's lead to six. He would later tack on an insurance run in the bottom of the seventh with an RBI single. The 33-year-old has pieced together a modest four-game hitting streak and is slashing .383/.439/.800 with six home runs and 20 RBI in 15 contests this season.

Red Sox's J.D. Martinez: Resting Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Martinez isn't starting Thursday's game against the Twins, Ian Browne of MLB.com reports.

Martinez had a hot start to the season but has gone just 1-for-9 with three walks and three strikeouts in the last three contests. He'll get what appears to be a routine day off Thursday while Franchy Cordero serves as the designated hitter, batting eighth.

Red Sox's J.D. Martinez: Smacks three homers in return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Martinez went 4-for-6 with three home runs, four RBI, four runs and two strikeouts in Sunday's 14-9 win over the Orioles.

Martinez missed Saturday's game against Baltimore due to cold symptoms, but he was reinstated from the COVID-19 injured list for Sunday's series finale. He stayed hot at the plate in the win and recorded his third career three-homer game. The 33-year-old has tied a franchise record by recording eight consecutive games with extra-base hits to begin the season. Martinez now leads the majors with five home runs, seven doubles and 16 RBI this year.

Red Sox's J.D. Martinez: Back from COVID-19 IL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Red Sox reinstated Martinez (illness) from the COVID-19 injured list ahead of Sunday's series finale in Baltimore.

Martinez was placed on the COVID-19 IL in accordance with health and safety protocols after he exhibited some symptoms of a cold following Thursday's win over the Orioles. He remained away from the team for Saturday's game as a result, but after he subsequently tested negative for the virus in all of his rapid tests, Martinez will be allowed to rejoin the Red Sox. He'll serve as Boston's designated hitter and bat third in the order Sunday as the Red Sox conclude the divisional series.

Red Sox's J.D. Martinez: Shifts to COVID IL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Martinez (cold symptoms) was placed on the COVID-19 injured list Saturday.

The 33-year-old was withheld from Saturday's lineup due to cold symptoms, and he'll now be unavailable while on the COVID-IL. The specialized injured list doesn't have a minimum stay, so Martinez could make a quick return to the roster if he continues to test negative for the virus. Michael Chavis was recalled from the alternate training site in a corresponding move.

Red Sox's J.D. Martinez: Not in lineup Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Martinez isn't starting Saturday's game against the Orioles due to cold symptoms, Ian Browne of MLB.com reports.

Martinez started each of the first seven games of the year and went 13-for-30 with nine extra-base hits and 12 RBI while recording hits in every contest. However, he's feeling under the weather Saturday and is in the COVID protocols as a precautionary measure, Christopher Smith of The Springfield Republican reports. Christian Vazquez will serve as the designated hitter and bat fourth Saturday.

Red Sox's J.D. Martinez: Plates two runs Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Martinez went 1-for-4 with a double and two RBI in Wednesday's win over the Rays.

Martinez reached base just once in four at-bats but made the most of his only knock, as he plated two of the team's nine runs with a double off Ryan Yarbrough. The veteran slugger has hit safely in all of his six games to date and has already recorded four multi-hit efforts while also tallying two or more RBI in four games in a row. The 33-year-old designated hitter has wielded one of the hottest bats in the American League during the first week of the season.

Red Sox's J.D. Martinez: Tallies three RBI
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Martinez went 2-for-6 with two doubles and three RBI on Tuesday against the Rays.

Martinez played hero Tuesday night, driving in two runs in the bottom of the 12th inning to give the Red Sox a walkoff win. The performance continued what has been a very hot start to the season for Martinez, as he has at least one extra-base hit in every contest while racking up nine RBI and four runs scored across five games. Martinez appears to have put his forgettable 2020 campaign behind him, as he is hitting the ball with authority and has struck out only three times in 23 plate appearances.

Red Sox's J.D. Martinez: Clubs second homer Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Martinez went 2-for-3 with two walks, a three-run home run and a second run scored in Monday's 11-2 win over the Rays.

His eighth-inning blast off 2020 teammate Chris Mazza came when the game was well in hand. Martinez has an extra-base in all four games to begin the season and has already racked up two homers and six RBI after managing a disappointing seven home runs and 27 RBI in 54 games last year.

Red Sox's J.D. Martinez: Blasts homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Martinez went 2-for-4 with a solo homer and two RBI in Sunday's loss to the Orioles.

Martinez has been the lone bright spot in Boston's lineup to start the year, looking like the 2019 rather than 2020 version of himself. The right-handed hitter was the only Red Sox batter to give Orioles starter Bruce Zimmermann trouble all day, smacking a solo shot off him in the fourth and hitting an RBI double in the sixth. The 33-year-old has a career .290/.354/.530 slash line, and the Red Sox will benefit greatly if he can approach those numbers this season.

Red Sox's J.D. Martinez: Hits second double
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Martinez went 3-for-4 with a double, an RBI and a run scored in Saturday's 4-2 loss to the Orioles.

Martinez is off to a quick start following a disappointing 2020. He's hit safely in two games thus far, going 4-for-8 with two doubles. The Red Sox's bats have been kept quiet by Oriole pitching, which has limited Boston to two runs and nine hits over 18 innings.

Red Sox's J.D. Martinez: Back in action Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Martinez (illness) is starting in right field and batting third in Friday's spring game against the Rays, Christopher Smith of The Springfield Republican reports.

The veteran slugger was sidelined the past couple days due to food poisoning, but he's back in the lineup Friday. Martinez should take up his usual post at designated hitter for the Red Sox come Opening Day.

Red Sox's J.D. Martinez: Out with food poisoning
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Martinez will sit for the second straight game Thursday against the Twins due to food poisoning, Bill Koch of The Providence Journal reports.

Per manager Alex Cora, Martinez has been sidelined after eating some bad sushi earlier in the week. His absence shouldn't last much longer, however, as he'll be able to hit on a back field Thursday.
