Tigers' Martinez day-to-day with cut on right thumb
Tigers DH Victor Martinez is day-to-day with a cut on his right thumb.
Martinez, 34, will be replaced in the lineup by Andy Dirks on Tuesday. V-Mart missed all of last season after tearing his ACL during an offseason workout, which was part of reason why the club was motivated to sign Prince Fielder.
The switch-hitting Martinez is 3-for-21 (.143) with no extra-base hits and three walks in six games this year. He's a career .303/.370/.468 hitter in parts of 11 big league seasons.
