Report: Victor Martinez to play first twice in Arizona
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Tigers designated hitter Victor Martinez is destined to start two of three games in Arizona next week at first base, thereby pushing Miguel Cabrera to third, according to MLive.com.

Those moves would force third baseman Nick Castellanos to the bench.

The slumping Tigers would be hard-pressed to take Martinez out of the lineup. Despite rare back-to-back hitless games in a Saturday doubleheader, he still owns a .322/.384/.583 stat line.

Victor Martinez back in the lineup Friday
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

Tigers designated hitter Victor Martinez made his expected return from a back injury Friday against the Indians, after missing two weeks while recovering.

Martinez sat out the final eight games of the first half of the season while healing, and the All-Star break finally allowed him to get to full health.

Victor Martinez has '95 percent' chance to return Friday
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Tigers designated hitter Victor Martinez said Monday that he has a 95 percent chance of returning to the lineup Friday, MLB.com reports.

"I swung the bat yesterday for the first time," Martinez said. "There’s like a 95 percent [chance] that I’m going to be able to play when I get back on Friday.

"I’m a lot better. I’m almost right there. I mean, as much as I love the game and as much as I love this team, this stage right here, we still have a long way to go. I have to get right. I have to get back into the lineup and keep helping the team."

Martinez hasn't played since July 4, but he has remained on the active roster while dealing with his back issue, which will cause him to miss the All-Star game. He has hit .328/.391/.599 with 21 home runs and 55 RBI in 302 at-bats.

Tigers planning to get Victor Martinez back Friday
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

Tigers manager Brad Ausmus said he's planning on getting designated hitter Victor Martinez back in the lineup Friday, reports MLive.com. Martinez hurt his back June 29 while taking a swing and will go into the All-Star break having played in just two of the team's last 13 games.

He's hitting .328 with 21 homers and 55 RBI. Martinez will participate in All-Star festivities but not the game. He'll swing the bat in a team workout early Friday, hoping to get cleared for Friday's game against the Indians.
