3 weeks agoVictor Martinez Homers To Continue Hot Streak rotoballer.com
Detroit Tigers designated hitter Victor Martinez has mostly been disappointing this season, as the signs of old age have definitely shown themselves with regularity. But over the last week, the veteran slugger has been on a bit of a hot streak. His homer Friday off Carlos Carrasco was his second in the last five games, and he's hitting .500 (9 for 18) with six RBI during that span. His 1.460 OPS is far and away the best on the team, and is seventh highest in all of MLB among hitters with at le[...]

Detroit Tigers designated hitter Victor Martinez will get the day off on Sunday against Texas. Filling in as the designated hitter will be Nicholas Castellanos, who will hit second. With Castellanos moving to the DH slot, that means Victor Reyes will bat ninth and man right field. Reyes has limited fantasy value and can be avoided in DFS formats.

Detroit Tigers designated hitter Victor Martinez will not start on Tuesday as the Tigers are in Chicago taking on the Cubs. With the lack of a designated hitter in NL ballparks, it doesn't seem likely that we'll see Martinez in anything other than a pinch-hitting role over the next two days.

Detroit Tigers designated hitter Victor Martinez got off to a slow start but after a bounce-back month in May, he's really struggling in June.

To make matters worse, he has just four homers on the season. The veteran slugger is in his final season before retirement, and he's really showing his age these days.

The Detroit Tigers will face Cleveland's Josh Tomlin on Tuesday, and that is good news for designated hitter Victor Martinez. The veteran switch-hitter has 24 career at-bats against Tomlin and has touched him up to the tune of a .292 average with three homers and six RBI. Given his track record, and the fact that Tomlin has scuffled to an 0-4 record and an 8.06 ERA, it looks like a favorable matchup for V-Mart.

4 months agoVictor Martinez Limited For Next Three Games rotoballer.com
Detroit Tigers designated hitter Victor Martinez will be available to pinch hit, but not much else, as the Tigers will be spending the next three games in a National League ballpark. The veteran slugger does not play a defensive position, and will therefore be a non-factor from a fantasy perspective. It's not a bad time for Victor to take a break, as he has just one hit in his last 15 at bats.
