Orelvis Martinez is putting up insane numbers in Triple A this season. Fans and Media are pleading for management to call him up, But who would he replace if he comes up?

Congratulations to Orelvis Martinez on being named to @MiLB's Prospect Team of the Week with 5 homers and 13 RBIs!

Orelvis Martinez's impressive performance may be fast-tracking his debut in the big leagues, potentially signaling the end of someone else's tenure with the Blue Jays.

Martinez's outstanding week adds to his strong season start, hitting .333/.392/.681 with an OPS of 1.073. His production is crucial for the Blue Jays, who average only 3.96 runs per game, well below the MLB average of 4.40, with just 21 home runs in 23 games.

Orelvis Martinez is certainly pushing the envelope. Heck, he's slamming it inside the #BlueJays' mail slot.
24 hours after his 15-game hit streak ends, he blasts his 7th HR in 9 games with Buffalo.
Martinez has a hit in 19 of his first 21 games so far.

Martinez would probably take the spot of utility man Daniel Vogelbach, 31. Vogelbach has seen little playtime this year, featuring in only eight games, primarily as a pinch hitter, and making just three starts at DH.

However, since Vogelbach is out of options, his departure would signal the end of his second stint with the Blue Jays. Nonetheless, his ability to draw walks and hit for power should make him attractive to other MLB teams, ensuring he'll likely find a spot on another roster.
