With 23 homers, the 35-year-old veteran is still well on his way to passing his career-high mark of 25 bombs, but his pace has dropped with just two dingers in his past 100 plate appearances. Despite the power outage, Martinez has slashed .330/.400/.832 during that stretch and remains a valuable fantasy asset.(RotoWire, )
