Watch: MLB Network Discusses D-backs Newest Acquisition, J.D. Martinez

There’s no question that the Diamondbacks made a big splash today when they acquired J.D. Martinez today from the Detroit Tigers. The D-backs sent prospects Dawel Lugo, Sergio Alcantara and Jose King to the Tigers in exchange for Martinez.

In Martinez, the Diamondbacks get a big right-handed bat in their lineup capable of destroying left-handed pitchers. For the season, Martinez is batting .474 and has hit 6 homers against lefties over an albeit light 38 at-bats.

I found a couple videos that I thought were worth sharing. Check them out.

First up, Al Leiter and Mark DeRosa look at the offensive weapon that is Martinez by breaking down a couple of his at-bats this season.

Next, Jon Morosi talks about the impact for the Diamondbacks on adding a bat like Martinez.
