Victor Martinez 1B/DH DET 5 Days

Tigers general manager Dave Dombrowski said he would love to re-sign Martinez, the Detroit Free Press reports.

Following an MVP caliber 2014 campaign, Martinez will likely receive a multi-year deal in line with the pact that Carlos Beltran signed with the Yankees last winter (three years, $45 million). Considering that he will turn 36 in December, the chances of Martinez producing another season at his 2014 levels (.335/.409/.565, 32 HR, 103 RBI) seem remote, but he has shown improved plate discipline in the form of an increased walk rate (10.9% BB%) and elite 6.6% K%. Even if the ISO (a career-high .230 in 2014) regresses closer to his career mark (.168), Martinez should be a steady run producer in the heart of an American League lineup in 2015.

Tigers manager Brad Ausmus doesn't plan to use Martinez behind the plate in the Tigers' interleague series at Pittsburgh.

The Tigers are concerned about Martinez's health if he were to catch. "Because of the side injury he had before the break, we were going to have him catch some bullpens in Arizona [two weeks ago] but I didn't want to risk it," Ausmus said. "So at this point, we won't catch Victor, but there's a good possibility that [Miguel Cabrera] will play third."
