Tigers' Victor Martinez: Takes seat Wednesday

by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
(8/16/17) Martinez is out of the lineup Wednesday against the Rangers.

The Tigers are eager to limit Miguel Cabrera's duties in the field after the former MVP returned from a two-game absence due to a back injury to play nine innings at first base Tuesday, so he'll slide over to the DH spot Wednesday while Martinez sits. The benching comes at an unfortunate time for Martinez owners with the 38-year-old having delivered three multi-hit performances in his past six starts.

Tigers' Victor Martinez: Goes deep in Tuesday loss

by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
(8/16/17) Martinez went 2-for-3 with a solo home run, a walk and two runs scored in Tuesday's loss to the Rangers.

After hitting 27 home runs in 2016, Martinez has only nine this season. His .256 average and .699 OPS are also behind his rates from last season. However, the veteran has hits in five of the last six games, including three multi-hit efforts. Martinez has proven over his career that he's capable of putting a hot streak together for fantasy owners, so he might be a worthy investment in leagues where he's available.

Tigers' Victor Martinez: Sitting Monday with no DH available

by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
(8/7/17) Martinez is out of the lineup Monday against the Pirates.

With the Tigers kicking off a home-and-home series with the Pirates in Pittsburgh on Monday, it's expected that Martinez will hit the bench for back-to-back days before settling back in as the DH when the series returns to Detroit on Wednesday. Martinez logged five games at first base a season ago, but the Tigers have deployed the 38-year-old exclusively as a designated hitter in 2017.

Tigers' Victor Martinez: Heads to bench Tuesday

by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
(8/1/17) Martinez is not in the lineup Tuesday against the Yankees.

Martinez is 0-for-8 with four strikeouts over his past two contests, so he'll head to the bench for his first breather since the All-Star break. Miguel Cabrera will take over at DH for the game, opening up a spot for John Hicks to draw the start at first base.

Tigers' Victor Martinez: Goes yard twice Friday

by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
(7/22/17) Martinez went 2-for-4 with two home runs and three RBI in Friday's 6-3 win over the Twins.

That snapped an 11-game homerless drought for Martinez, and the 38-year-old only has eight home runs on the season in 78 games. His contract runs through 2018 at $18 million a year, and if the Tigers do hold a fire sale at the deadline, the veteran DH could be one of the players they attempt to move -- if they can convince him to waive his no-trade clause, that is.
