The veteran lives on’ JD Martinez, ‘NL Player of the Week’

JD Martinez (36, LA Dodgers), who returned from injury, became the hottest player in the National League, clearly showing that the veteran is still alive.

The Major League Secretariat announced on the 26th (Korean time) that Martinez was selected as the National League Player of the Week. This is his 11th selection in his career.

In addition, this is the first National League Player of the Week award since September 2017 and the third time in total. The rest are all American League Player of the Week awards.

Martinez recorded a batting average of 0.458, 5 home runs, 12 RBI, 6 runs, 11 hits, an on-base percentage of 0.500, and an OPS of 1.708 in 7 games over the past week.

He recorded multiple hits in all 5 games in which he hit, and especially against the Detroit Tigers on the 19th, he hit 2 home runs and 5 RBIs.토토사이트

As a result, grades also improved. Martinez recorded a batting average of 0.273, 31 home runs, 98 RBIs, 59 runs, 111 hits, and an on-base percentage of 0.325 and an OPS of 0.903 in 107 games of the season until the 25th.

It appears that it will be difficult to achieve the required number of at-bats due to injuries, etc., but there is a high possibility that the OPS will exceed 0.900 for the first time in four years since 2019.

This means that he was revived in his age 36 season. In particular, Martinez’s slugging power is a great help to the LA Dodgers’ main batting lineup, where the main hitters are placed in the first and second positions.

Martinez currently has 997 RBIs in his career. Since the LA Dodgers still have 7 games left, the possibility of reaching 1,000 RBIs this season is open.
