J.D. Martinez has replaced Gold Glove Yadier Molina in Headliners packs today. Headliners Set 37 J.D. Martinez is a 96 overall.
The perk with this Silver Slugger J.D. Martinez card is obviously the nutty hitting stats. He especially flourishes against right-handed pitching with 116 contact and 113 power. He has 119 contact vs. left-handed pitching to go with 97 power. With 125 clutch on top of that, his hitting is certifiable.
Of course, Martinez is a disaster in the corner outfield spots so you have to take the good and the bad with all J.D. cards. I imagine he ends up as a bench bat for these reasons, but no one can deny the appeal of his swing.

The odds on the Headliners packs remain the same as always, so good luck if you try getting him in packs as you’ll have a 1:10 chance at a diamond, albeit that diamond might not be Headliners Set 37 J.D. Martinez.
