Who Was Last Red Sox Player With At Least 10 Homers, 50 Hits Through 40 Games?

The Boston Red Sox shelled out $110 million this offseason to sign J.D. Martinez. So far, he’s been worth every penny.

The Red Sox outfielder/designated hitter is off to a scorching start in Boston, boasting a .346 batting average that ranks third in the American League to go along with 11 home runs, 34 RBIs and a 1.037 OPS.

In fact, Martinez’s 10 homers and 51 hits through the club’s first 40 games of the 2018 season entering Monday put him in elite company: Only six other players in franchise history have tallied at least 10 homers and 50 hits in that span, three of whom are Hall of Famers.
