Detroit Tigers 1B Victor Martinez (knee) could be on his way to the disabled list after the team recalled OF Tyler Collins from Class AAA Toledo (Ohio) Tuesday, May 19. Collins was hitting .248 with no home runs and nine RBI in 32 games with the Mud Hens, and he was the final cut from the opening day roster. Martinez has been fighting through soreness in his twice surgically-repaired left knee all year. He tweaked his knee again Monday, May 18, and went 0-for-4 to extend his hitless streak to 13 at-bats. Martinez is hitting .141 with one extra-base hit in 85 at-bats against right-handed pitchers, and he refuses to hit right-handed against righties.
Fantasy Tip: Martinez ($4,200, 8.4% of cap) came up gimpy trying to beat out a double play in Monday night's game. His knee ailment is likely the main culprit for his slow start and lack of thump at the plate. Hopefully for his owners, a break and some rest will do him good, but this could very well be a lost season for the veteran switch hitter. If Martinez needs a DL stint, it'll raise the value of Rajai Davis ($3,000, 6.0% of cap), who has mainly been starting against left-handed pitchers.

Detroit Tigers OF Tyler Collins appears to be included on the team's final roster barring a last-minute move for a left-handed hitting outfielder in the final days of spring. "I came into camp ready to just continue to play and continue to show them what I can do," Collins said Tuesday, March 25. "A couple of injuries and things of that sort gave me an opportunity, I think, but no, I didn't really think I had a shot."
