News
After a breakout season in 2014, Tigers outfielder J.D. Martinez knows pitchers will change how they pitch to him, which he said he's ready for, reports MLB.com.

"They weren't last year, how can I put it, just serving them up, just not making adjustments," Martinez said. "This is the new age of baseball, where everything is computers and calculations and sabermetrics. If you have a hole, they're going to find it and they're going to make the adjustments game to game because of that. Every game you play in, there's advance scouts watching you and there's computers that are charting you. So when they go sit down, they're looking at a screen with all your percentages of what you hit good, what you hit bad."

Manager Brad Ausmus agreed that it will not be easy for Martinez to duplicate his 2014 season, where he hit 23 home runs with 76 RBI while batting .315.

"They definitely have a more in-depth scouting reports compared to a year ago," Ausmus said. "They're much more aware of him as a power threat, so they'll be more careful with him. That's the nature of baseball."

News
Tigers shortstop Jose Iglesias is struggling at the plate with a batting average of .091 this spring. Manager Brad Ausmus is not worried about the infielder.

"He hasn't swung the bat like his numbers. He's swung the bat much better," Ausmus said. "I'm not overly concerned. I'm not concerned at all, actually."

 Ausmus attributed his lack of success at the plate to bad luck.

"He's struck out, what, twice in 30 at-bats?" Ausmus said. "Somewhere there's bad luck involved. If you're putting the ball in play that much and you're not getting hits, there's a little bit of bad luck involved. He's not a .100 hitter."

After singling on Wednesday, Iglesias broke a string of 23 at-bats without a hit. He is now 3 for 33 during the spring.

Tigers first baseman Miguel Cabrera went 0 for 2 and played four innings in the field Wednesday.

"I feel very good," Cabrera said after his debut in the field, per MLB.com. "I'm glad to be back at first and try to get in the rhythm, try to get in baseball shape. I was so happy to be out there at first base and try to play defense."

Cabrera made multiple tough plays in the field, giving his surgically-repaired ankle and foot a test.

"It feels very good," Cabrera said. "I try to make plays, and to make that play in that situation, I don't think about my ankle, my feet. Right now I'm focused on [trying to] go out there and play."

Cabrera is expected to be back at first base Thursday before receiving a day off Friday.

News
Tigers outfielder Anthony Gose has been impressive this spring in the eyes of manager Brad Ausmus, according to MLB.com

"I think Gose is a very viable option against right-handed pitchers at the leadoff spot," Ausmus said Tuesday night.

Ausmus believes that Gose has played well this spring, but he wants to see him continue to flourish.

"It's nice that he's being successful," he said, "but I want to continue to see good swings. That's the most important thing. Even if he doesn't get hits, I want to see good swings, good approaches."

Gose entered Tuesday going 1 for 16 in his latest appearances. He then singled, stole second and scored after another single from Yoenis Cespedes.

Ausmus had more to say on the performance of Gose, and what he needs to accomplish going forward. 

"Overall, he's had very good swings," Ausmus said. "I think early on he was a little more consistent, then he got into a little bit of a funk. But even when he was in a little bit of a funk, he'd usually have one at-bat a game where he looked right. And I know he's working hard on it in the cage. He's trying to make it consistent. But with hitters, it's a battle to avoid traps and mechanical failure. It happens."

News
Tigers pitcher Joe Nathan suffered a broken thumbnail while pitching Thursday, which caused a cut on his thumb, reports MLB.com.

"The thumbnail looked like it was cutting into his thumb," manager Brad Ausmus said, per MLB.com. "He was bleeding. He had [blood] all over his pants, so he must have been wiping it off the whole time. Certainly, that was an issue."

Nathan gave up a game-tying home run Thursday and he has surrendered a home run in each of his last two outings. Despite Nathan's struggles, Ausmus said he was sticking with Nathan as the team's closer, reports the Detroit News.

Nathan was already set to take the next three days off to rest, which Ausmus hopes will be enough time to allow the injury to heal. 

"We hope it'll be healed by then," Ausmus said.

Injuries
Knee - Questionable for start of season (Updated - 2/5/15)
News
Tigers designated hitter Victor Martinez launched a two-run home run off Kevin Gausman, but told reporters following a 6-4 win over Baltimore that he's experiencing some soreness in his surgically-repaired left knee, "but it's something I just to deal with, I guess," per the Detroit Free Press.

Manager Brad Ausmus told reporters earlier in the day that he noticed a "hitch" in Martinez's step recently since he made his Grapefruit League debut on Sunday. Martinez was noticeably limping after beating out a single in the second inning, and remained in the game. His first home run of the spring came in the eighth inning.
