Arizona Dbacks Acquire JD Martinez

Jon Morosi of FOX Sports and MLB Network was first to report the trade on Twitter. On initial inspection, the return for Martinez looks disappointingly light, and some experts around baseball agree.

Since that time, his.551 slugging percentage is third in the American League behind Mike Trout (.581) and David Ortiz (.564), his.300 average is sixth and his 99 home runs 13. The 29-year-old former All-Star is hitting.305 with 16 homers and 39 RBIs, making him one of the premier right-handed bats on the market.

The defending World Series Champions are second in the NL Central, 3.5 games behind the Milwaukee Brewers and have a record barely over.500. I know it's hard, but I get it, I understand the situation you're in.

Despite the emotion, Martinez said he understands the business side of things.

And then boom. The Tigers traded JD Martinez to the Arizona Diamondbacks for SS/3B Dawel Lugo, SS Sergio Alcantara, and SS Jose King.

"It's definitely tough", Martinez said.

Vogt caught the throw home and tried to make a sweeping tag when Kuhl inadvertently bowled him over.

Martinez, who was traded from the Tigers to the Diamondbacks on Tuesday, was struck on the hand while swinging at a Tim Adleman pitch at the top of the fourth inning.

Potentially adding to this complicated decision facing the club in the coming days, the Royals removed closer Kelvin Herrera from Wednesday night's game with a team trainer.

After defeating the Cincinnati Reds 11-2 on Tuesday night, Ray's victory snapped a five-game losing streak.

But time will tell on this trade, though I believe the Tigers could have gotten far more from another team besides Arizona.

The Tigers are getting three prospects in the deal, and the team's Twitter feed named them as a confirmation of the deal. The general feeling around Detroit is that GM Al Avila could have done better, but Martinez is still only a rental about to hit 30, and the going rate for those types isn't lucrative. Like completely, I'm not mad about it.
