Monday, June 18th, 2012
So far in his young career, Jose Martinez has kept a low profile, but after his performance at the plate last week, he attracted the notice of the rest of the Southern League in a big way as he was named the Player of the Week today for his efforts.
The 23-year-old Birmingham Barons right fielder hit at a torrid .393 clip as he collected 11 hits in 28 at-bats, 3 home runs, 8 RBIs and 8 runs scored.
Martinez is hitting .286 this year with 8 home runs and 37 RBIs. He also has an OBP of .353, 23 walks and scored 34 times.
