Detroit Tigers C Victor Martinez will be the team's primary designated hitter this year, but manager Jim Leyland said he could also see some time behind the plate at some point, likely during interleague play. Martinez has not caught a game this spring and probably won't.
Fantasy Tip: Martinez, who is only eligible at DH or first base in some fantasy leagues, could play enough games behind the dish to become eligible at catcher once again, but it remains to be seen.

I've been out for a year and I've been out there every day swinging, swinging, swinging." He said he isn't worried about his knee anymore.

Detroit Tigers C Victor Martinez (knee) is back to full strength following knee reconstruction last year, and he hit a home run off Philadelphia Phillies SP Roy Halladay Sunday, Feb. 24. Martinez is 3-for-7 after three spring games. "This is only my third game, but yeah, I've been really surprised," Martinez said. "The hard part is just to get the rhythm, pick up the ball from the pitcher's hand. I've been able to do that the last three days. It's a good sign."
