Torii Hunter timetable to return as starter pushed back


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(6/21/2014) Hopes have faded that Tigers right fielder Torii Hunter can return this weekend from a left hamstring injury from which he has been slow to recover.

Hunter ran on the field Friday night and took batting practice. He plans on ramping up his running Saturday and could pinch-hit, but will likely not start again until at least Tuesday in Texas. And if replacement J.D. Martinez continues to rake, his playing time might be cut. Hunter would certainly understand that, though both can be considered starting outfielders at this point if Rajai Davis is not.

"Play the hot hand," Hunter told MLB.com after Martinez slugged a critical three-run homer Friday night to help beat Cleveland. "If it's going to bring a ring, you keep that sucker in there. It's no big deal. Seen it. Done it. Been there. I'm about winning. Even when I come back, hopefully he stays in there. Keep him in there, keep him hot. ... If I was the manager, what's what I would do."

Hunter owns a .266/.290/.441 stat line on the season.
