J.D. Martinez Out Of Saturday's Lineup, May Have Been Injured In OF

This is why J.D. Martinez should never play the outfield. Sure, he made a "nice" catch yesterday to help preserve the team's 1-0 victory—but if he injured himself on the play and he's out for 10 days, was it worth it? We say a resounding NO! Despite yesterday's catch—we all know that Martinez is a marginal defender at best—maybe even borderline lousy. Why risk bad defense and injury when he can be safely ensconced in the cocoon of the DH? Dumb, Dumb, Dumb.
