Tigers general manager Dave Dombrowski said on MLB Network Radio on Wednesday that Victor Martinez (knee) will not catch at all in 2013.

V-Mart missed all of 2012 while recovering from surgery to repair a torn ACL and is expected to serve as the club's primary designated hitter in 2013. Meanwhile, Alex Avila and Brayan Pena will handle catching duties. Fortunately Martinez is still catcher-eligible in most fantasy leagues, though his value will likely take a big hit going into 2014.
