Fantasy Tip: Martinez is trying to return after missing a full year because of his knee injury. Fantasy owners will have to wait to see how he responds when playing in spring training games before being comfortable about his status for the 2013 season. Martinez could be a bargain in drafts because he is coming back from the injury.
