Colorado Rockies interested in trading for J.D. Martinez, report says

(WXYZ) - With just over two weeks until the MLB trade deadline, another Detroit Tigers player is reportedly on the minds of some teams.

According to MLB Network's Jon Morosi, the Colorado Rockies are interested in trading for outfielder J.D. Martinez.

Martinez, 29, is on the last year of his contract and will become an unrestricted free agent following the 2017 season.

Morosi reports that Martinez would be very valuable in the National League West because of the high amount of left-handed starting pitchers in the division.

This season, Martinez is batting .306 with 15 home runs and 37 RBIs in 55 games.
