Diamondbacks GM Mike Hazen confirmed Tuesday that the club will attempt to re-sign J.D. Martinez.
Obviously. Martinez batted .302/.366/.741 with 29 home runs and 65 RBI in 62 regular-season games after the Diamondbacks acquired him from the Tigers on July 18 and he went 4-for-11 (.364) with a home run in the National League Division Series against the Dodgers. The 30-year-old slugger is going to be seeking big-time money on the open market. "We'll certainly stay engaged," said Hazen. "It is too early to set out what exactly our priorities will be."

J.D. Martinez went 3-for-4 and drilled a solo home run as his team fell to the Dodgers on Friday.

He went yard against Dodgers ace Clayton Kershaw in the sixth inning as the Diamondbacks tried to claw their way out of a big hole. Martinez added a pair of singles in the contest. He has been on an epic power surge ever since being traded from the Tigers at the deadline. He had 45 home runs in just 119 games this year.

J.D. Martinez slugged his 45th home run of the season Wednesday in the Diamondbacks' defeat of the Giants.

The solo shot off Giants closer Sam Dyson kicked off a three-run ninth-inning rally for the home team. Martinez now has 29 home runs and 65 RBI in 59 games since the Diamondbacks acquired him from the Tigers on July 18.
Sep 27 - 7:18 PM

J.D. Martinez went 3-for-4 with a grand slam, a double, and six RBI in Tuesday's 11-4 victory against the Giants.

Martinez is showing why he was one of the most coveted hitters at the non-waiver trade deadline. He has given the Diamondbacks loads of offense and then some, posting 12 doubles, 28 homers, and 64 RBI in 58 games since coming over from the Tigers.
Sep 27 - 2:43 AM

J.D. Martinez delivered a walk-off RBI single in the ninth inning on Sunday, leading the Diamondbacks to a 3-2 victory over the Marlins.

The Diamondbacks clinched a postseason berth earlier in the afternoon, then got to have some fun of their own on the field and in front of the home crowd. Martinez finished the day 2-for-5 and is now hitting .300/.376/.684 with 43 homers and 97 RBI in 114 games this season.
Sep 24 - 7:51 PM

J.D. Martinez went 3-for-4 with a homer and three runs scored Friday against the Marlins.

Martinez has 26 homers in 55 games for the Diamondbacks after hitting a paltry 16 in 57 games for the Tigers. It looks like he's going to be cutting it very close to whether he gets to qualify for the slugging and OPS crowns without a penalty; he's at 462 plate appearances with eight games to do. He'd need exactly 40 in the remaining eight games, so that'd go out the window if the Diamondbacks decided to rest him at all.

J.D. Martinez swatted his 40th home run of the season as the Diamondbacks fell to the Giants on Sunday afternoon.

J.D. Martinez (neck) is in the Diamondbacks' starting lineup Saturday against the Giants.

Sep 16 - 8:15 PM

J.D. Martinez was scratched from the Diamondbacks' starting lineup on Friday due to left neck stiffness.

Gregor Blanco has taken his place in the D'Backs lineup. The injury isn't believed to be major, so consider the hot-hitting outfielder day-to-day. Martinez is hitting .298/.376/.681 with 39 homers and 88 RBI in just 106 games between the Tigers and Diamondbacks this season.
Sep 15 - 9:50 PM

J.D. Martinez went 2-for-4 with a double and a solo home run in Tuesday's loss against the Diamondbacks.

Martinez certainly brought his hitting shoes to the yard, but none of his teammates followed suit. The outfielder has been on fire in the month of September, posting at least one RBI in each of his past five outings, and 18 steaks across 10 games since flipping the calendar from August.
Sep 13 - 1:31 AM

J.D. Martinez went 3-for-4 with a double and two runs scored Monday against the Rockies.

Not only does Martinez have eight homers this month, but he's 18-for-40, raising his overall average to .294. He has nine hits in his last three games.
Sep 12 - 1:43 AM

J.D. Martinez blasted another pair of home runs on Sunday, powering the Diamondbacks to a 3-2 victory over the Padres.

Martinez got the Snakes on the board with a towering blast to left-center field off of Luis Perdomo in the second inning. He then tagged Perdomo again in the sixth inning with a go-ahead solo shot that proved to be the difference in the contest. He has been crushing long balls at an epic pace since coming over in a deadline deal from the Tigers, hitting .269 (45-for-167) with 21 homers and 45 RBI in just 45 games.
Sep 10 - 9:28 PM

J.D. Martinez slugged four home runs in the Diamondbacks' rout of the Dodgers on Monday.

Martinez is just the 18th player in MLB history to produce a four-homer game. Amazingly enough, the power show didn't begin until the top of the fourth inning, when the 30-year-old slugger belted a two-run homer off Dodgers starter Rich Hill. He then went deep in the top of the seventh off Pedro Baez, in the top of the eighth off Josh Fields, and in the top of the ninth against Wilmer Font. Martinez finished 4-for-5 with six RBI in the 13-0 victory -- the 11th straight victory for Arizona. The mid-July trade acquisition has 18 homers and 40 RBI in 40 games with the Snakes.
Sep 4 - 11:50 PM

J.D. Martinez had a three-run homer and an RBI single Saturday as the Diamondbacks topped the Rockies 6-2.

The homer was Martinez's 14th in 39 games for Arizona and 30th in 96 games overall. His .616 slugging percentage ranks fourth in the majors among players with at least 300 at-bats (behind only that of Mike Trout, Giancarlo Stanton and Charlie Blackmon).
Sep 3 - 12:32 AM

J.D. Martinez went 2-for-4 with a pair of solo home runs, a walk and three runs scored in Sunday's win over the Giants.

Martinez added to what was a slim 1-0 lead with a solo home run off Chris Stratton in the sixth inning, then came back around for another solo shot as part of a nine-run eighth inning for Arizona. The slugger has maintained his power since coming over to the Diamondbacks in trade -- he has 13 homers and is slugging .603 in 121 at-bats with his new club -- but has yet to find a true groove in terms of average, as he is hitting just .231 in 34 games in a D-Backs uniform.
