Jose Martinez imitates Cabrera, Donaldson to make Cards

WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. (AP) Jose Martinez had an epiphany while watching video of Miguel Cabrera and Josh Donaldson, and he's hit his way onto the St. Louis Cardinals' opening day roster.

Before heading to camp this spring, Martinez worked out with fellow Venezuelans Martin Prado and Miguel Rojas of the Marlins in Miami.

"We started watching some swings from Donaldson and Miguel Cabrera, and we noticed that they don't hit ground balls," Martinez said. "They eliminate them."
