Astros | Slumping J.D. Martinez might be out a few days

Houston Astros manager Bradley Mills kept the struggling OF J.D. Martinez out of the lineup Wednesday, May 9, and he said he might give Martinez a few more days off. The outfielder has just one hit over his past 30 at-bats. "It's not a punishment," Mills said. "I'm just going to give him a couple of days. This will get me a chance to get (OF Justin Maxwell) some at-bats, and (OF Travis Buck has) gotten a few at-bats."
