Victor Martinez placed on 10-day DL with irregular heartbeat

The Tigers placed Victor Martinez on the 10-day disabled list on Friday with an irregular heartbeat. The team recalled John Hicks from Triple-A to take Martinez's place on the roster.

Fantasy Impact

Martinez had exited Thursday's game with nausea, and then was hospitalized overnight for observation. Brad Ausmus suggested that Martinez could be hospitalized for another night for tests and observation. Obviously, hope for the best for Martinez, and it's unclear whether his ailment could require more than the minimum stay on the disabled list. Martinez has had a down year with just five home runs and a .714 OPS.

Victor Martinez exists game with nausea

Victor Martinez (stomach) exited Thursday's 5-3 win over Tampa Bay with nausea after going 2-for-4 with an RBI.

Fantasy Impact

Martinez was 2-for-4 with an RBI before getting replaced at DH by Dixon Machado when he started sweating and feeling dizzy with the stomach pain. While it appears to be a minor illness, monitor the situation anyway and consider him day-to-day.

Victor Martinez goes 0-for-4 in loss

Fantasy Impact

Martinez is in the midst of a five game slump going 3-for-19. He is scheduled for face Alex Cobb tonight who has held Martinez to a .143 lifetime batting average. Fantasy owners should keep their eye on the teams' lineup tonight as a day off to reset may be near.

Victor Martinez goes hitless in loss

Victor Martinez finished 0-for-5 with a run scored in Sunday's 8-3 win over Boston.

Fantasy Impact

V-Mart reached on a fielder's choice in the fifth and came around to score on Justin Upton's grand slam that busted the game open. He's been a steady bat for the Tigers although he hasn't produced any counting stats for fantasy owners thus far in June having driven his last run on a solo shot on May 31. He's slashing .267/.346/.388 and five home runs and 28 RBIs.

Victor Martinez sits out Sunday's game

Victor Martinez (flu) sat out Sunday's game against the White Sox.

Fantasy Impact

V-Mart left Friday's contest with flu-like symptoms but returned Saturday to an 0-for-4, earning him a day off to rest. The vet had been hitting well over his past several games and, on the whole, has been hitting a respectable .264/..346/.390 with five home runs and 28 RBIs. He doesn't appear to be quite the force he used to be but the Tigers are always glad to have him in the lineup. He should be back out there soon.
