The Astros had another typical two win four loss week at home. Jordan Lyles picked up his first win and gets runner up this week. But it was another recent call-up that stood out.
J.D. Martinez burst onto the scene with a big week. The Astros new left-fielder went 6 for 27 with two homers and drove in seven runs. Martinez should continue to see regular playing time, hitting in the middle of the lineup. He has been a hitting machine in the minors and Astros fans have to be impressed with what J.D. has done so far in the big leagues.
Humberto Quintero gets honorable mention going 5 for 15 in four games played during the week. Quintero’s eighth inning homer on Wednesday proved to be the difference in Lyles’ aforementioned victory.
