Philadelphia Phillies: The 4 Least Likely Home Runs in Team History

He's gotten a lot of flack from Philadelphia fans throughout the season, but Michael Martinez is starting to pick up the slack.

Martinez is a utility player who can play a multitude of positions, and if he can keep his batting average up, at least he'll maintain a higher career average than Steve Jeltz (.210).

Speaking of Jeltz, he had just one home run in his first six seasons in Philadelphia. Then, in 1989, Jeltz had a power surge and hit FOUR!

Let's get back to Martinez.

He's having a nice July, hitting .276 (8-for-29). Nine of his 13 RBI have come this month.

He's even picked his average up above the "Mendoza line" to .215.
