As sluggish as the first week of baseball has been for the Tigers since their return from the All-Star break. One player hasn’t let us forget why he’s an importance to the Club.
A tweet from the Tigers official Twitter confirmed J.D Martinez has been named A.L Player Of The Week with 2 home runs, 7 RBI’s, .455 BA and .500 OBP.
Congratulations to @JDMartinez14 on being named A.L. Player of the Week!

It’s easy to see why JD has such an impact on the Tigers this season. Hitting a .308 average this season, this 61 hit, 39 RBI machine is the exact tool the Tigers need moving forward.
