Diamondbacks Bring In Power In JD Martinez

Detroit Tigers slugger J.D Martinez was traded to the Arizona Diamondbacks on Tuesday hours before the Royals hosted the Tigers.

The Tigers will acquire infield prospects Dawel Lugo, Sergio Alcantara, and Jose King. Lugo is regarded as the Diamondbacks' No. 2 overall prospect.

As for the Tigers, as I mentioned, the return is a very weak return considered by scouts.

Martinez is hitting.305 with 16 home runs and 39 RBI in 57 games played for Detroit this season.

Rumors will continue to increase leading up the July 31 as teams will be desperate to find the player or players they feel are necessary to help them win the 2017 World Series.

"It's an ongoing process", Avila said.

The Tigers probably aren't losing a lot of sleep over that possibility, simply because they hope and expect that Norris will spend the entire 2018 season in the big leagues. "The options are somewhat limited and you have to go with the teams that really want the guy or put forth the effort".

According to oddsmakers at BetDSI, the Tigers are favored on the road, as they are getting odds of -110 to win.

It was the seventh loss in eight games for the Royals, going back to a three-game skid entering the All-Star break, and a particularly disheartening one given their three-run first inning.

"I've played against this division so much that you really can't bank on a certain team and how you do well against them", Duffy said.

Although he was limited to just 120 games previous year, he had a.307 batting average to go with 22 home runs. Duffy has held left-handed hitters to a.188 batting average this season.

After defeating the Cincinnati Reds 11-2 on Tuesday night, Ray's victory snapped a five-game losing streak. He hit 17 home runs at two different levels in 2016, but has regressed back to seven so far this season.

Outfielder Rey Fuentes was placed on the 10-day disabled list with a left thumb contusion on Wednesday, opening a roster spot for Martinez. In 17 starts, the right-hander is 5-9 with a 5.20 ERA and 24 homers allowed, most in the NL.
