Victor Martinez raps out first extra-base hits of the season

Victor Martinez has gone 4-for-10 with two doubles, two runs scored, and two RBIs over his last two games. The doubles were Martinez's first extra-base hits of the season.

Fantasy Impact

It's been an extremely slow start for Martinez, who has just a .530 OPS. But he now has at least one hit in seven of his last eight games. Expect Martinez to provide more production as the weather heats up, but his days of being an elite hitter are behind him.

Victor Martinez out of the lineup on Thursday

Victor Martinez is not in the Tigers' lineup for Thursday's game against the Rays. Miguel Cabrera will start at DH.

Fantasy Impact

Looks like a day off for Martinez who, despite his slow start, looked like one of the top DFS players for Thursday's early slate. Expect Martinez to be back in the lineup tomorrow.

Victor Martinez working back from surgery

Tigers GM Al Avila announced that Victor Martinez had surgery on a hernia in October. Martinez should be good to go for the beginning of the 2017 season, but could be held out of some preseason work to continue rehab. He had an .824 OPS in 2016.

Fantasy Impact

Martinez had a .667 OPS in 2015 after finishing as the runner-up in the AL MVP race in 2014, so his .824 OPS and 27 home runs last season provided a nice bounce back. While he is not particularly known for his power, he does have a .464 slugging percentage since missing the 2012 season with an ACL tear, averaging 24 home runs per 162 games. Since he is now solely a DH, his C/1B eligibility is not a strength, but his track record of power and contact makes him a good utility option in the middle of your draft.

Victor Martinez with a grand slam

Victor Martinez finished 2-for-4 with a walk, two runs scored, and a grand slam on Sunday. Martinez is 7-for-14 with three home runs, five runs scored, and 10 RBI over the last seven days. He has an .838 OPS this season.

Fantasy Impact

Martinez has a five-game hitting streak and has a home run in three of his last five games, registering a multi-RBI game in each of those games. He has a .250 batting average in September with two doubles, four home runs, nine runs scored, and 11 RBI.

Victor Martinez sits due to bruised right knee

Martinez missed Tuesday's game against Minnesota due to a bruised right knee after being hit by a pitch Sunday against Cleveland. The Tigers won 8-1 without their cleanup hitter in the lineup.

Fantasy Impact

His status appears to be day-to-day, but with Martinez being 37 and having knee issues in the past they may be cautious about getting him back in the lineup too soon. This season he is batting .287 with 24 home runs ans 77 RBI.
