Now, that J.D. Martinez has been named the Astros' minor league player of the year, let's take a look at what Farmstros readers had to say about him throughout the year. Martinez was selected by readers of this blog as the organizational player of the month twice, in May when he was in Lexington and again for his performance in AA Corpus Christi in August/September. Further, Martinez was picked as the Farmstros Player of the Year by a landslide vote. He was third in the pre-season player of the year voting behind Jio Mier and Jason Castro.
