The LA Dodgers, who have been in a slump with 5 wins and 5 losses in the last 10 games, are coming back with their injury history. JD Martinez (36), who will protect the central batting lineup, is about to return.
MLB.com, the official Major League Baseball website, reported on the 8th that Martinez is scheduled to return from the injured list on the 9th (Korean time).바카라사이트
The LA Dodgers will play a three-game road game against the Washington Nationals from the 9th to the 11th. Martinez is expected to start in the first game against Washington.
Martinez previously suffered a groin muscle injury and left the team after the game against the Miami Marlins on the 20th of last month, and has already completed his minor league Triple A rehabilitation game.
Martinez’s return from injury is expected to be a great boost to the Los Angeles Dodgers. This is because he can show slugging ability in the central batting lineup.
The LA Dodgers failed to show the strength of their central batting lineup in the 4-game series preview of the National League Championship Series (NLCS) against the Atlanta Braves and fell behind with 1 win and 3 losses.
Before his injury, Martinez recorded a batting average of 0.256, 25 home runs, 78 RBIs, 49 runs, 90 hits, and an on-base percentage of 0.309 and an OPS of 0.856 in 92 games this season.
The accuracy of his striking has declined compared to his prime, but he still packs a punch. Martinez’s experience is expected to play a big role in the postseason.
