Should I Stash Orelvis Martinez In Redraft Leagues? Fantasy Baseball Prospect Outlook

Orelvis Martinez - Fantasy Baseball Prospects, Draft Sleepers, MLB Rookies

Whether it be Justin Turner scuffling at the plate or Isiah Kiner-Falefa not being a long-term solution, the Toronto Blue Jays have a problem at third base. That’s not to mention that their entire infield could be overhauled by the time the trade deadline comes and goes later this summer in July.

Rumors have suggested that franchise centerpieces Vladimir Guerrero Jr. and Bo Bichette could be on the move if the Jays don’t turn things around in the next month or so, but even if they stay put, the club's everyday options at the hot corner, as well as second base, are lacking, to say the least. Davis Schneider has certainly been a nice surprise, but Cavan Biggio has never quite been able to consistently put all his talent together.

Orelvis Martinez is Toronto’s No. 2 prospect for 2024, according to MLB Pipeline, and might be the answer to the team’s shortcomings in the middle infield. Let’s take a look at whether or not he’s worth stashing for fantasy managers in redraft leagues.

 

Orelvis Martinez Prospect Outlook

Martinez may be batting a mediocre .245 (47-for-192) through 51 games with Triple-A Buffalo, but he’s recorded 13 home runs, 10 doubles, 40 RBI, and 19 walks across 219 plate appearances. The 22-year-old right-handed slugger has spent his time defensively at either second or third base in 2024, but he’s actually a shortstop by trade with 194 appearances at that position.

Although the Jays sit within striking distance of an American League Wild Card spot at 28-30 as of June 3, they rank in the bottom 10 of most basic hitting and pitching categories. It’s likely only a matter of time before wholesale changes are made to their roster, and unless they go on a considerable hot streak in June and July, they’re more prone to being sellers than buyers at the deadline.

 

Is Orelvis Martinez Worth Stashing?

Martinez’s game is all about power. He profiles as a slugging infielder with a big arm that could offer Toronto’s listless offense some pop offensively and playmaking defensively.

If your fantasy team is hungry for power stats, such as homers and RBI, as well as plus position eligibility, Martinez is worth stashing in deeper leagues with a promotion to the major leagues likely arriving sometime in July.
