Ausmus: Tigers DH Victor Martinez began rehab Friday

by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(5/22/15) Brad Ausmus has announced that Tigers designated hitter Victor Martinez began his rehab Friday in Orlando, per the Detroit Free Press.

Martinez was placed in the disabled list with a lingering knee ailment that prevented him from hitting against right-handers to his usual standards.

Ausmus has stated that he has no clear idea as to when Martinez will return to the team.

Ausmus won't guess on return of Tigers DH Victor Martinez

by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(5/20/15) Nobody knows for sure when aging designated hitter Victor Martinez will be back in the lineup for the Tigers.

And that includes Brad Ausmus.

Martinez has been placed on the disabled list with a knee problem that has plagued him all season and forced him to struggle against right-handers, against whom he is batting .141 (12-for-85).

"We've got to make sure he's healthy," Ausmus told MLive.com. "I don't know if that'll be two weeks. I don't know if it'll be four weeks - I'd just be throwing darts blindfolded."

Tigers place Victor Martinez (knee) on disabled list

by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(5/19/15) The Tigers have placed designated hitter Victor Martinez on the disabled list with left knee inflammation, the team announced on Tuesday.

Martinez aggrevated his knee while trying to beat out a ball at first on Monday and the pain was enough that he will need some time to recover. Martinez is hitting .216 with 15 RBI in 111 at-bats this season. The team will recall Tyler Collins from Triple-A Toledo to fill in the roster spot.

Tigers' Victor Martinez won't abandon switch-hitting

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(5/19/15) Tigers designated hitter Victor Martinez is just 12 for 85 against right-handed pitchers while batting lefty, but giving up switch-hitting isn't a consideration for him or the team, MLB.com reports.

"Something that I'm never going to do and I have never done is just going out there and go righty on righty," Martinez said.

Martinez is 7 for 19 with four walks in his career while batting righty against a right-handed pitcher, but all of those at-bats came against knuckleball pitchers. Tracking a right-handed power pitcher from the right side would be a big change for the designated hitter.

"Honestly, I don't know how I'm going to react when the pitcher throws the ball," Martinez said. "I might get out of the way. I've never done it before."

While the idea may have come up among the coaching staff, manager Brad Ausmus isn't willing to force Martinez out of his comfort zone.

"We thought about it, we talked about it and he's not comfortable with it," Ausmus said. "If he's not comfortable with it, obviously we aren't going to be comfortable with it."

Martinez suffered a knee injury on Monday, and his availability for Tuesday's game has yet to be determined.

Tigers DH Victor Martinez injures knee

by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
(5/18/15) Tigers designated hitter Victor Martinez appeared to aggravate his already injured left knee in Monday's game against the Brewers, according to MLB.com. 

Following the game, Tigers manager Brad Ausmus hinted that Martinez could head to the disabled list. 

"From the looks of things, I think we're going to have to at least talk about other options," Ausmus said. "But we'll do that privately."

Martinez is hitting a slash line of .216/.308/.270 for the season. He went 0 for 4 in a 3-2 loss to the Brewers on Monday
