Victor Martinez to make at least one start at catcher this week
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(4/6/14) Tigers manager Brad Ausmus said he will let DH Victor Martinez catch one game this week, as Detroit has a five-game interleague schedule against the Dodgers and Padres starting Tuesday.

Ausmus also said Martinez could play a game at first base this week.

"We just can’t have Victor’s bat on the bench for that long of a time," Ausmus said, per MLive.com.

Tigers unveil opening day lineup
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(3/30/14) Tigers manager Brad Ausmus announced his opening day lineup for Monday's game against the Royals. Second baseman Ian Kinsler will hit leadoff and be followed by right fielder Torii Hunter, first baseman Miguel Cabrera, DH Victor Martinez, center fielder Austin Jackson, catcher Alex Avila, third baseman Nick Castellanos, shortstop Alex Gonzalez and left field Rajai Davis.

Jackson has primarily hit leadoff in his career, but after the spring he put together, Ausmus made the decision to hit him in the heart of the order. Jackson hit .429 (24 for 56) with two triples, two home runs, five doubles, 14 RBI and 17 runs in 18 spring games.

"The way Austin Jackson hit this spring, he was the best option to bat fifth," Ausmus said.

Victor Martinez to hit cleanup
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(2/23/14) Tigers catcher Victor Martinez will hit in the four-spot this season, according to mlive.com.

Martinez will be responsible for knocking in Miguel Cabrera early and often. The 35-year-old Martinez may not be a power hitter, but manager Brad Ausmus isn't concerned about that. "Victor’s a hitter, period," Ausmus said. "You assume Miggy’s going to be on base a decent amount of times, but I have no problem with Victor being behind him."

Martinez hit .301/.355/.430 in 605 at-bats last year.

Victor Martinez could catch early on
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(2/14/14) Tigers designated hitter/catcher Victor Martinez could see some time behind the plate on an early road trip, according to mlive.com.

Manager Brad Ausmus said Martinez could be used when the team visits the Dodgers and Padres. That roadtrip begins just six games into the season, as the team heads to Los Angeles April 8. Martinez said he was still open to catching Thursday, and it appears he'll get his wish. It's unclear how regularly Martinez will be behind the plate, but it sounds like there's a chance he'll see more time in the field than he has the past two seasons.

Martinez hit .301/.355/.430 in 605 at-bats last year.

Victor Martinez not giving up on catching
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(2/13/14) Tigers designated hitter Victor Martinez reported to camp with the catchers, according to MLB.com.

Martinez played just three games at the position last season, but hasn't given up on playing behind the plate. "I'm ready to do whatever they need me to do," Martinez told reporters while trying on new catching gear.

Though he reported with the catchers, Martinez is probably not looking at an increased role behind the plate. It's possible he'll again be used in an emergency role, and wants to make sure he gets some practice.

Martinez hit .301/.355/.430 in 605 at-bats last year.
