Martinez began this season with the Detroit Tigers. Then, around the trade deadline, he was dealt to the Arizona Diamondbacks.

With both teams, he had a .303 batting average with a 1.066 on-base percentage in 119 games. He had 45 home runs and 104 RBI’s between the Tigers and the Diamondbacks.

He’s one of several of Boras clients, who are expected to cash in this winter. The other includes first baseman Eric Hosmer, pitcher Jake Arrieta, and third baseman Mike Moustakas.
