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.

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.

Tigers | Victor Martinez expected back Friday

Thu, 18 Jun 2015 14:50:58 -0700

Detroit Tigers 1B Victor Martinez (knee) is expected to be activated from the disables list for the game against the New York Yankees Friday, June 18.

Fantasy Tip: FantasyScore and seasonal owners will want to be patient with Martinez ($4,100, 8.2% of cap) initially. He had a horrible start to the season, but rejoining a potent lineup should help him bounce-back, assuming he is finally 100% healthy.

Fantasy Tip: Martinez ($4,100; or 8.2% of cap) should be avoided in FantasyScore until he can officially return and show that his power has officially returned, too.

Sat, 13 Jun 2015 14:54:54 -0700

Detroit Tigers 1B Victor Martinez (knee) will begin a rehab assignment at Class AAA Toledo Sunday, June 14. He's expected to serve as the designated hitter for four games and could return next weekend.

Fantasy Tip: V-Mart ($4,100, 8.2% of cap) will be a daily option on FantasyScore, but he might need a day or two to kick off the rust.

Tigers | Victor Martinez passing eye tests

Fri, 12 Jun 2015 15:46:48 -0700

Detroit Tigers 1B Victor Martinez (knee) "looked really good" hitting Friday, June 12, according to manager Brad Ausmus. Martinez also participated in on-field agility drills Friday.

Fantasy Tip: Martinez ($4,100, 8.2% of cap) could return from the disabled list as soon as next week, and fantasy owners will be hopeful he can turn his ugly start around. Still, a rehab stint in the minors isn't out of the question, and any substantial production before the All-Star break should be viewed as a bonus.

Tigers | Victor Martinez could return next week

Fri, 05 Jun 2015 07:56:55 -0700

Detroit Tigers 1B Victor Martinez (knee) could return from the 15-day disabled list next week. Martinez took batting practice Thursday, June 4, and if his knee doesn't experience swelling, he'll do it again Friday, June 5. The plan is for him to return to the team Tuesday, June 9.

Fantasy Tip: We're pumping the brakes a little on that Tuesday return. He could need some at-bats in the minors after missing three weeks. Still, it's great news that he is nearing a return after it was reported he could miss the rest of the first half.
