J.D. MARTINEZ: DESIGNATED HITTER
Martinez was picked 611th due to his underperformance at the plate. So, he studied the best sluggers in the game and retooled his swing. He’s since won multiple awards with his bat and become the only player in history to win two batting titles in the same year—one as a designated hitter and one as a right fielder. He’s consistently among the leaders in home runs, RBIs, batting average and slugging percentage, and he’s only the 18th player ever to hit four home runs in a single game. He was also an award finalist for his glove in 2015 with a near-perfect .993 fielding percentage. When it comes to toughness, dedication and dynamic versatility, nobody does it better than the Boston dynamo in the number 28 shirt.
J.D. Martinez is one of the hardest working players in the league. He never quits, never takes a day off and never stops improving. A long-ball slugger with award-winning fielding skills, Martinez brings an endless supply of energy every time he puts on a jersey.
