Astros | J.D. Martinez anxious to swing bat

Houston Astros OF J.D. Martinez (hand) is four months removed from surgery on his hamate bone in his left hand. He is anxious to get to spring training to see how the hand responds while swinging a bat regularly. "I really haven't been able to swing that much yet, but I feel like it's right there and really close," Martinez said. "I'm trying to rest it as much as I can now because I know when spring training starts, it's going to be non-stop. I feel like I'll be ready and it will be strong enough for me to do what I have to do."
