Tigers' Victor Martinez: Headed to paternity after Thursday game

The Tigers will place Martinez on the paternity list after the completion of Thursday's game, Matthew Mowery of The Oakland Press reports.

Detroit will announce a roster move to replace him after the contest, which may be John Hicks rejoining the main roster and handling first base or designated hitter duties for a few days. Martinez owners should make alternative plans for the weekend.
