Published on

With the opening weekend of the 2024 MLB season over, plenty of players have made an immediate impact, including a few that have shown unexpected production for their teams. While the season is just starting and the samples are small, these performances have been noteworthy.

Here are three hitters that have come out of the gates hot in 2024. 

Nick Martini, designated hitter, Cincinnati Reds

2024 MLB stats: .500/.556/1.375, two home runs and seven RBI in three games played

A career journeyman with only 141 games played in four major league seasons before 2024, Reds designated hitter Nick Martini has been one of the best stories from opening day weekend.

With a hit in all three appearances so far this season, the 33-year-old has already driven in seven runs for the Reds after hitting two home runs on opening day and a clutch two-run double after pinch-hitting in the second game.
