Edgar Martinez, DH


Career: 1987-2004, Mariners
Fun fact: Only DH to have won a batting title, hitting .356 in 1995

There are only so many positions, so there are only so many opportunities for one player to define. With his, Martinez defined the designated hitter. Average, patience and power, Martinez had it all, but early-career injuries forced him off the field, making DH the spot for him.

Martinez won two batting titles and three OBP titles.

Previous rank: 122
