Pointed out by Amazin Avenue's daily minor league recap: RF Fernando Martinez: 3-5, 2 HR(9), 2 RBI, 3 R, K (.266/.327/.473) Hopefully the start of a big second half
That is now a line of .324/.419/.757 for an OPS of 1.175. He's taking walks finally - five in his last ten games - and hitting with his customary power. He also never strikes out - five in his last 37 at-bats.
Kid is a stud. I can't wait. He could be our fifth outfielder in September.

In his last ten games, hitting a robust .278/.333/.583 for a .917 OPS. Includes 10 strikeouts in only 36 at-bats but he's coming back strong after his latest injury.
He's awesome. He's still 21, and won't be 22 until October.
Keep hitting, Fernando. Don't pay any attention to the haters. Hit and hit and hit (and please take a walk once in a while) and soon you'll be back.
