Tigers | Victor Martinez sitting vs. Reds

Mon, 24 Aug 2015 12:20:51 -0700

Detroit Tigers 1B Victor Martinez is not in the starting lineup against the Cincinnati Reds Monday, Aug. 24.

Fantasy Tip: The Tigers can't utilize a designated hitter during their road game against the Reds, so it is Martinez ($4,800, 9.6% of cap) draws out of the lineup. It is also worth adding, Martinez has an underwhelming .631 OPS through 20 games in August, and his seasonal value is trending in the wrong direction.

Tigers | Victor Martinez ends drought

Thu, 06 Aug 2015 18:22:50 -0700

Detroit Tigers 1B Victor Martinez went 2-for-4 with two home runs, five RBI and two runs scored in an 8-6 win over the Kansas City Royals Thursday, Aug. 6. It was his first home run since July 17 and his first multi-homer game since hitting two against the Toronto Blue Jays Sept. 17, 2010.

Fantasy Tip: Martinez ($4,800, 9.6% of cap) has performed below his usual standards most of the year, and until he strings together a few solid games, he isn't worth paying for at FantasyScore.

Fantasy Tip: Martinez ($4,800, 9.6% of cap) should be avoided on FantasyScore until he starts posting some positive results.

Tigers | Victor Martinez works out at SS

Mon, 20 Jul 2015 22:44:34 -0700

Detroit Tigers DH Victor Martinez (knee) took grounders at shortstop during batting practice Monday, July 20, but he isn't planning on a move to the middle infield. He has not played the field this year due to knee problems.

Fantasy Tip: Martinez ($4,800; or 9.6% of cap) is a good offensive weapon for FantasyScore players, and it really doesn't matter that he hasn't played the field.

Tigers | Victor Martinez not an option at 1B

Sat, 04 Jul 2015 07:36:27 -0700

Detroit Tigers 1B Victor Martinez will not be an option to fill in at first base while 1B Miguel Cabrera (calf) is sidelined.

Fantasy Tip: Martinez ($4,800, 9.6% of cap) likely will remain as the team's designated hitter and will be an important piece in the lineup because of Cabrera's injury. He has at least one hit in nine of his last 11 games and also has 10 RBI during that span. Owners on FantasyScore should consider Martinez as a starting option most nights.

Tigers | Victor Martinez producing

Sun, 28 Jun 2015 16:44:16 -0700

Detroit Tigers 1B Victor Martinez hit a three-run double in a 5-4 win over the Chicago White Sox Sunday, June 28, and he has 10 RBI in his last seven games.

Fantasy Tip: After battling injuries to start the year, Martinez ($4,500, 9.0% of cap) is starting to round into form. As long as he is healthy, he is a solid mid-priced option at FantasyScore against most matchups.

Sun, 21 Jun 2015 16:26:56 -0700

Detroit Tigers 1B Victor Martinez went 3-for-6 with a home run, four RBI and two runs scored in a 12-4 win over the New York Yankees Sunday, June 21.

Fantasy Tip: It was his third game back after missing a month with a knee issue, and if he can stay on the field, Martinez ($4,100, 8.2% of cap) should offer solid production for the price at FantasyScore.

Tigers | Victor Martinez back in lineup

Fri, 19 Jun 2015 12:17:36 -0700

Detroit Tigers 1B Victor Martinez (knee) will serve as the designated hitter against New York Yankees SP Adam Warren Friday, June 19, and is batting fourth in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Martinez ($4,100, 8.2% of cap) has not played since May 18 because of the injury, so it may take him time to return to his normal self. Martinez is hitting .216 this season, so owners may want to see him play in a few games before using him in their lineups.
