Dodgers News: Outfielder Jason Martin Off to Red-Hot Start in OKC

Dodgers fans love to get excited about the guys in their system. And why not? Over the last decade or so, the team has brought up some pretty big names that made an immediate impact. The takeover by new ownership has drastically changed the way that they do things, and it’s changing the course of the franchise forever. 

One name to keep an eye on is Jason Martin. The 26-year-old outfielder has been all around the big leagues since being drafted by the Astros in the 8th round of the 2013 draft. He signed a minor-league deal with the Dodgers back in November of 2021, and he seems to be improving. 

This year, Martin is off to a red-hot start in triple-A. The outfielder has already crushed 15 homeruns from the left side of the plate, hitting .290 in the process. The power numbers are way up, and we have to think it has something to do with the coaching within the organization. 

Martin’s previous high for homeruns was 23 back in 2016, done in 110 games. He has already collected 15 in almost half the games played for the Oklahoma City Dodgers. So when could we see him up with the big league squad?

Well, what’s working against him is his roster position. Martin is not on the Dodgers’ 40-man roster right now. That could hurt his chances, but it could also put him in a positon where Los Angeles takes a short-term chance on him.
