J.D. Martinez hopes to follow up on big 2014 season

LAKELAND, Fla. (AP) The Detroit Tigers had mild expectations for J.D. Martinez when they called him up from the minors early last season.

"We knew he had power," manager Brad Ausmus said. "We were initially hoping he could just be a power threat off the bench."

Martinez quickly became a lot more. After being signed by Detroit to a minor league deal in March, he eventually earned a spot on the big league roster and hit .315 with 23 home runs and 76 RBIs. That production made all the difference in the world for the Tigers, who won the AL Central by one game, and now Martinez is penciled in as a key player in the middle of Detroit's lineup.
