Martinez is out of the lineup Sunday against the White Sox.

EDGE Analysis

Martinez returned to the lineup Saturday after exiting early the night before due to flu-like symptoms, so it doesn't sound like he's still feeling under the weather. Instead, manager Brad Ausmus likely just wanted to give Martinez two full days to rest up before the Tigers resume their homestand Tuesday with the Angels. With Martinez sitting Sunday, J.D. Martinez will get a day out of the field and serve as the Tigers' designated hitter.
