Tigers | Victor Martinez coming off huge week

Mon, 02 May 2016 12:01:11 -0700

Detroit Tigers DH Victor Martinez went 14-for-27 (.519 batting average) through his past seven games with eight runs, five doubles, three home runs and eight RBI.

Fantasy Tip: Martinez currently leads the American League in OPS (1.072) and has 14 runs, five home runs and 18 RBI to start the season. He is well on his way to a huge rebound showing in 2016, and barring an injury, could be one of the biggest values of spring drafts. Start Martinez confidently going forward.

Tigers | Victor Martinez is on fire

Fri, 29 Apr 2016 23:53:22 -0700

Detroit Tigers DH Victor Martinez collected four hits in five at-bats Friday, April 29, against the Minnesota Twins. He posted a double, solo home run, three runs scored and two RBIs.

Fantasy Tip: Martinez has posted multi-hit efforts in four of his past six, and he has hit safely in 11 of the past 13 games. He is hitting .353 (18-for-53) with eight runs scored, six doubles, three homers and 11 RBIs during the 13-game span. Needless to say he has re-emerged as a must-start fantasy option in all formats and DFS play.

Tigers | V-Mart deposits one into seats

Mon, 25 Apr 2016 21:17:03 -0700

Detroit Tigers DH Victor Martinez went 2-for-4 with a solo home run Monday, April 25, against the Oakland Athletics.

Fantasy Tip: Martinez has three homers and 11 RBIs in the month of April. When he stays healthy he can still be a fantasy force, but over the past couple of seasons he has had a difficult time staying in the lineup.

Tigers | Victor Martinez reaches milestone

Wed, 20 Apr 2016 19:53:12 -0700

Detroit Tigers DH Victor Martinez went 1-for-4 with an RBI in a victory over the Kansas City Royals Wednesday, April 20. The RBI was the 1,000th of his career.

Fantasy Tip: Martinez is batting .264 with two home runs and eight RBI through his first 34 at-bats of the season and continues to be productive at the age of 37. He should be viewed as a midrange first baseman in all fantasy formats.

Tigers | Victor Martinez out of lineup

Thu, 14 Apr 2016 07:01:29 -0700

Detroit Tigers 1B Victor Martinez is out of the lineup Thursday, April 14, with no designated hitter in the National League park.

Fantasy Tip: J.D. Martinez bumps up to the cleanup spot, and Nick Castellanos is hitting fifth. Martinez is a no-brainer start as he has opened the season 13-for-29 (.448). Castellanos is a midrange-to-fringe DFS option against Ryan Vogelsong Thursday with a .269-1-3 line to begin 2016.

Tigers | Victor Martinez out of lineup

Wed, 13 Apr 2016 11:44:17 -0700

Detroit Tigers 1B Victor Martinez is not in the starting lineup against the Pittsburgh Pirates in a National League park without the designated hitter Wednesday, April 13.

Fantasy Tip: V-Mart will typically be the one to sit out when the Tigers play in an NL park, so this shouldn't come as a surprise. Make sure to replace him with someone else this afternoon.

Tigers | Victor Martinez in the lineup

Fri, 08 Apr 2016 06:48:15 -0700

Detroit Tigers 1B Victor Martinez is making his first start Friday, April 8, hitting cleanup against New York Yankees SP Luis Severino.

Fantasy Tip: V-Mart had a hamstring issue in camp, but the first two games were in an NL park and kept the DH on the bench. He has homered in both of his plate appearances this season, so it's safe to say there shouldn't be much rust for the daily DFS consideration.

Tigers | Victor Martinez homers off bench again

Wed, 06 Apr 2016 17:38:01 -0700

Detroit Tigers DH Victor Martinez came in as a pinch-hitter and hit his second homer of the season in as many at-bats Wednesday, April 6, opposite the Miami Marlins.

Fantasy Tip: Who said Martinez wouldn't be of any use to fantasy owners during Detroit's season-opening series in an NL park? Joking aside, the former backstop has potential to put up some very intriguing power numbers this year now that he's over his injury that limited him in 2015. He might be a nice buy-low candidate.

Tigers | Victor Martinez continues to progress

Tue, 29 Mar 2016 12:46:33 -0700

Updating a previous report, Detroit Tigers DH/1B Victor Martinez (hamstring) said he felt good after playing in a spring training game Tuesday, March 29. He will take the day off Wednesday, March 30, before playing the final three Grapefruit League games before the regular season begins.

Fantasy Tip: Keep your expectations in check with Martinez. He is coming off a career-worst season with a .245/.301/.366 slash line and has significant injuries concerns at age 37. Still, there is upside for a bounce-back campaign, and he is a viable option in the later rounds of mixed drafts.

Tigers | Victor Martinez expected to be ready

Tue, 29 Mar 2016 09:13:56 -0700

Detroit Tigers 1B Victor Martinez (hamstring) is expected to be ready for opening day, according to manager Brad Ausmus. "At this point, I would be shocked if he wasn't ready to go," Ausmus said. Martinez is serving as the designated hitter in a spring game Tuesday, March 29, and has hit in minor league games the last two days.

Fantasy Tip: A knee injury destroyed V-Mart's 2015 season, and injuries are a real concern for him at 37 years of age. His expectations are lower than ever, but he can rebound if healthy and produce solid numbers as corner infield insurance for your fantasy squad.
