Tigers' J.D. Martinez: Will receive second opinion from specialist

The Tigers received MRI results on Martinez's sprained right foot, but won't disclose the details until the outfielder receives a second opinion from a specialist, Anthony Fenech of the Detroit Free Press reports.

Martinez first suffered the mid-foot sprain while making a catch in the outfield during Saturday's Grapefruit League game against the Marlins. While X-rays on the foot have already come back negative, the Tigers aren't likely to issue an update on a potential return date until the results of the MRI are announced. With Opening Day still a little over two weeks away, Martinez will still have some time to heal up before the season begins, but if he's forced to hit the DL, some combination of Steven Moya, Mikie Mahtook and JaCoby Jones would likely make starts in his stead.
