Martinez left Friday's game against the White Sox with flu-like symptoms.

EDGE Analysis

Martinez had gone 1-for-3 out of the DH spot before being replaced in the fifth inning by Alex Presley. The veteran slugger is coming off a solid month of May in which he hit .318/.413/.523 with 28 RBI in 88 at-bats, so hopefully his absence isn't extensive. Consider him day-to-day moving forward.

Martinez went 2-for-4 with a solo home run and two runs during Wednesday's win over Kansas City.

EDGE Analysis

The veteran has put together an impressive five-game stretch going 7-for-19 with two homers, four RBI, four runs and a 1.191 OPS. Martinez is capable of moving the needle in four of the five traditional rotisserie categories, and he boasts a respectable fantasy floor because of his placement in the heart of the potent Detroit lineup.

Martinez went 2-for-5 with a game-tying two-run double and a run in Monday's 10-7 win over the Royals.

EDGE Analysis

The veteran knotted the game at 3-3 with a two-bagger to left in the fifth that plated Jose Iglesias and Alex Avila. Martinez has enjoyed a productive May after hitting just .219 in April, as he's now racked up six multi-hit efforts, six doubles, three home runs and 15 RBI during the month while slashing .309/.406/.494 over 100 plate appearances. A reversal of fortune when putting the ball in play has been pivotal to his resurgence, as Martinez is sporting a .324 BABIP this month after generating a .250 figure in April.

Martinez went 2-for-3 with a solo home run and two walks during Saturday's win over the White Sox in the second game of their doubleheader.

EDGE Analysis

This was just the fourth home run of the season for the designated hitter, and with an underwhelming .384 slugging percentage, Martinez hasn't provided much pop. The 38-year-old veteran is just a season removed from posting a .476 mark, and his 25 RBI are an admirable total at this stage. Staying patient with Martinez should pay off in the long run. He's locked into the heart of a dangerous lineup, after all.

EDGE Analysis

The veteran is set to miss his third consecutive game Sunday while he's away from the team, but all signs are pointing to a return for the start of the Tigers' upcoming series in Houston. Miguel Cabrera will serve as Detroit's designated hitter Sunday.

EDGE Analysis

This gives a whole new meeting to the Tigers' Thursday getaway contest. Detroit will announce a roster move to replace him after this contest, which may be John Hicks rejoining the main roster and handling first base or designated hitter duties for a few days.

Martinez went 2-for-4 with a home run and three RBI in Tuesday's 13-inning loss to the Orioles.

EDGE Analysis

Martinez took Baltimore starter Wade Miley deep in the third inning with a runner on. With Miguel Cabrera ahead of him in the lineup, and Justin Upton and now J.D. Martinez behind him, Victor Martinez is in a great position to post solid counting stats the rest of the way if he stays healthy.
