V-Mart held out of starting lineup again Friday vs. White Sox
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Although the Tigers are back in an AL park Friday after playing their three previous games in an NL park, DH Victor Martinez did not return to the starting lineup. Outfielder Yoenis Cespedes started at DH on Friday against the White Sox.

Martinez has not started since Sunday at Cleveland. He was available as a pinch-hitter during the Pittsburgh series and is available to pinch-hit Friday, per MLive.com. He is expected back in the starting lineup Saturday.

Manager Brad Ausmus confirmed Martinez isn't dealing with a back injury, which surfaced in multiple reports Friday morning after the Tigers lineup was released. Ausmus did mention Martinez winced in a pinch-hit at-bat Tuesday because he tweaked his surgically repaired left knee.

"He'll be back in there tomorrow," Ausmus said Friday. "I just wanted to give him one more day off the left side. The left side's the weaker side.

"We'll give him a day off today, then we have a couple of lefties. He'll be back in there. Hopefully these three days will help that calm down."

Despite Martinez's absence, the Tigers are still favored (-170) for Friday's game.

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Tigers DH Victor Martinez will be available to pinch-hit Wednesday at Pittsburgh, manager Brad Ausmus said. However, Martinez will not take batting practice, per the Detroit Free Press.

Ausmus showed some concern after Tuesday's game when it appeared Martinez might be dealing with a back injury during a pinch-hit appearance in the ninth inning.

Martinez, who has not started the last three games with Detroit in an NL park, is batting .261 (6 for 23) with no home runs and three RBI in eight games.

Tigers' Ausmus a little concerned about Victor Martinez
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Tigers manager Brad Ausmus admitted he was concerned after watching DH Victor Martinez take some uncomfortable swings as a pinch-hitter Tuesday against the Pirates. Although Martinez was grabbing at his back after striking out in the ninth inning, he said he didn't tweak anything.

"Yeah, he didn't look great at the end there," Ausmus said, "so I'll talk with him in the next 24 hours and see how he's feeling."

Martinez is not expected to start again Wednesday, as the Tigers finish out a three-game series in an NL park. The Tigers are off Thursday before starting a 10-game homestand against the White Sox, Yankees and Indians.
