The West Coast air has done wonders for J.D. Martinez.
Martinez has been thriving offensively throughout the Boston Red Sox’s road trip hitting an astonishing .429 over his last five games while clobbering four home runs and driving in 12 runs. After the strong start to the trip, the 32-year-old slugger currently sits fifth in the American League in batting average (.314) as the Sox begin a three-game set against the Los Angeles Angels on Friday night.
