The Tigers are on fire and a big part of that is Victor Martinez, who has done nothing but rake this year.
He hit another homer last night and his triple slash line now stands at .329/.379/.605 with 11 homers and 26 RBI; he leads the league in average, slugging and OPS.
But what may be the most remarkable stat to look at regarding Victor Martinez is that he has just 9 strikeouts to go along with those 11 home runs.
We shouldn’t expect Martinez to keep this up all year, but right now it’s pretty impressive.
