. Martinez stood behind a 2013 Instagram post that attributed a fake quote to Adolf Hitler.The post included a picture of Hitler that read: "To conquer a nation http://www.yankeesfanproshop.com/authentic-giancarlo-stanton-jersey , First disarm it's citizens."TheNew York Daily News' Kate Feldman provided a screenshot of the post:Kate Feldman kateefeldmanI just...what... Jf1gxgzOpq"I posted it," Martinez said Tuesday of the story, per USA Today's Scott Boeck. "I love my country. I love this country. I stand by the Constitution and I stand by the Second Amendment and it's something that I take pride in. It's something that I'll back up.At the time I posted that, the Second Amendment at the time was definitely a hot topic.The point of it wasn't to offend anybody."Chad Amaral of Boston 25 News shared Martinez's full comments from Tuesday:Chad Amaral Chad_AmaralJD Martinez on controversial Instagram post quot;Im here to play baseball guys, Im not a politician.... Im here to help us win...It was something that happened 6 years ago....thats why I dont talk about politics I dont want this distraction.quot; OmkfDElaNrChad Amaral Chad_AmaralJD Martinez addresses controversial Instagram post quot;The point of it wasnt to offend anyone, as most of you guys know Im Cuban American and most of my family was run out of Cuba by a brutal dictator.quot; BfgpbLESPYThe post predates Martinez's tenure with the Red Sox, which started this offseason when he signed afive-year, $110 millioncontract. Still, Red Sox team president Sam Kennedy told theBoston Herald'sSteve Buckleythe team had addressed the situation with Martinez.Kennedy said the Red Sox "work with our players regularly to reinforce that their social media interactions can be interpreted in ways that are unintended."Controversy about his past social media habits aside, Martinez is having an incredibly successful debut season in Boston.He's batting.338 with 38 home runs, 110 RBI and a .656 slugging percentage, and his 5.4 WAR is tied for seventh-best among MLB position players http://www.yankeesfanproshop.com/authentic-giancarlo-stanton-jersey , perFanGraphs.The Red Sox need that production to continue as they look to remain on top in the American League East and avoid the wild-card game in the postseason. KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — Jason Kipnis had been mired in such a batting slump that the Indians second baseman had resorted to watching old film of himself, trying to discover what had changed in the past couple years.He finally noticed a subtle, almost imperceptible difference in his hand position, so he rolled up a magazine and began mimicking his old swing in his hotel room. And while it felt a bit odd, and looked just as goofy, Kipnis nevertheless went to sleep feeling as if something had finally clicked.Did it ever.Kipnis proceeded to club four hits and drive in four runs Sunday, the big shot an inside-the-park homer in the ninth inning, to lead Cleveland’s 12-5 rout of the Kansas City Royals.“Obviously every day I’ve been working to snap out of it. It’s been ugly to watch and worse to go out there,” said Kipnis, who is still hitting just .223 this season. “I came in with better spirits and said, ‘Let’s see where it goes from here.'”Kipnis nearly went 5 for 5 http://www.yankeesfanproshop.com/authentic-giancarlo-stanton-jersey , but a baserunning mix-up by Melky Cabrera on his flyball in the second resulted in a fielder’s choice. Kipnis later had a pair of singles and a double before the homer.“He swung the bat very well,” Indians manager Terry Francona said, “and I’ll tell you what, what a lift that would give us. He’s showed flashes, but if he could get hot, what a lift it would be.”Shane Bieber (8-2) allowed four runs for Cleveland — on homers by Whit Merrifield, Salvador Perez and Lucas Duda. He departed after allowing six hits and striking out seven in 5 1/3 innings, but it was still enough for the AL Central-leading Indians to improve to 10-1 when facing a series sweep.Right-hander Jorge Lopez (0-4) allowed five runs, all in the fourth inning, on five hits and three walks for Kansas City. He was lifted after throwing 79 pitches in just four innings.“You give a chance to your guys when you go deep in a game and I couldn’t do it today. I need to get better for sure,” Lopez said. “We’ll see about going forward from this start.”The Royals, who had snapped their own five-game skid Friday night Dellin Betances Jersey , looked as if they’d keep their momentum going when Merrifield took Bieber deep to left field leading off the game.It was his fifth career leadoff homer and second this year.But the Indians answered with their big fourth inning, when six consecutive batters reached on four hits and a pair of walks. And after Perez went deep in the bottom half, the Indians added two more runs on Francisco Lindor’s two-out single in the sixth to add to their cushion.Edwin Encarnacion continued the offensive outburst — which came after the Indians were held to one run on five hits on Saturday night — when he took Royals reliever Jake Newberry deep in the eighth.“It’s been a tough trip for a lot of guys, but they’re going to be OK,” Francona said. “We needed to find a way today, whether it was ugly or whatever, and we did that.”O’HEARN IN LFRoyals 1B/DH Ryan O’Hearn got the start in left field, the first time he’s played the outfield in the big leagues. O’Hearn played 13 games there at Triple-A Omaha this season, and manager Ned Yost said the move was designed to “find a way to keep his bat in there.”TRAINER’S ROOMIndians: RHP Cody Anderson (Tommy John surgery) struck out two in a scoreless inning Saturday night for the club’s Arizona League team. It was his first game since September 2016. “No red flags or anything,” Francona said. … OF Brandon Guyer is getting a couple days off after getting hit where the foot meets the ankle, or as Francona called it, the “fankle.”Royals: RHP Ian Kennedy (left oblique strain) threw 60 pitches last Friday without any problems and expects to make a rehab start Wednesday Matt Holliday Jersey , Yost said. … OF Jorge Soler (fractured left toe) will begin a rehab assignment in the next couple of days, but even then he is unlikely to play in the outfield. “I don’t think so,” Yost said. “DH him some, give him some at-bats, make sure he’s ready to go for spring training, which he will be.”UP NEXTThe Indians and Royals will both take Monday off before beginning their next series. Cleveland is back home to face Minnesota with Carlos Carrasco (15-7, 3.55 ERA) on the mound, and Kansas City begins a five-game trip to Detroit and Baltimore with Jakob Junis (6-12, 4.70 ERA) getting the first start.
