News
Martinez (pectoral) will man right field and bat in the cleanup spot in Monday's Grapefruit League game against the Braves.

Martinez was only sidelined a couple of days with pectoral tightness, and his reentry into the lineup indicates he's fully recovered from the issue. Even though an injury-plagued 2016 season dinged his final numbers, Martinez still profiles as one of the game's top power bats. His .908 OPS last season was actually superior to what he provided in 2015, when he smacked a career-high 38 homers.

News
Machado started at third base in Sunday's spring training game, his first time appearing at the position since 2015, the Detroit Free Press reports.

Machado is primarily a shortstop who also played a little second base last season. Machado, who is out of options, is battling for a bench spot this spring. "Versatility will help, for sure," Tigers manager Brad Ausmus said. "Versatility always helps when it comes to guys that could potentially be coming off the bench." Machado could be a useful defensive option for the Tigers, but he probably won't play often enough to offer much from a fantasy perspective.

News
Boyd went two scoreless innings in his spring training debut, giving up two hits and striking out two.

Boyd, who appears to have the inside track on the No. 5 spot in the rotation, threw 32 pitches, 23 for strikes. A strong spring would help Boyd hold off the likes of Anibal Sanchez and Mike Pelfrey for that last rotation spot.

News
Cabrera was hit by a pitch in the arm during Saturday's spring training game against Houston but he stayed in the contest, MLive.com reports.

If there was even a hint of an injury, Cabrera would have likely been pulled, so there doesn't seem to be any cause for concern here. Cabrera will continue to work in camp with the Tigers until he plays for Venezuela in the World Baseball Classic next month.

News
Zimmerman struck out one and allowed one run on two hits in 2.0 innings during his spring debut Monday.

This is a big first step for Zimmerman, who was only able to pitch 105.1 innings in 2016 due to neck issues. He received two neck injections over the offseason and reportedly came into spring training feeling 100 percent. The 30-year-old is looking to rebound after posting a 4.87 ERA last season, and staying healthy will be the key for him in 2017.

News
Bell retired three batters on five pitches in an inning of work in Sunday's spring training loss to the Mets. He struck out one.

Bell was traded to the Tigers in May and he spent the rest of the season with Triple-A Toledo. Tigers manager Brad Ausmus has said he's intrigued by the lefty, who can hit 93-94 mph on the gun. Bell will likely start the year at Toledo again, but he could work his way into the mix at the MLB level.

News
Castellanos (illness) will start at third base and bat sixth in the lineup for Monday's Grapefruit League game against the Braves.

The Tigers will get two of their big bats in the middle lineup back in action Monday, as both Castellanos and J.D. Martinez (pectoral) return to action after brief absences. Castellanos had something of a breakout season in 2016 with a .285 average to go with 18 homers and 58 RBI in 447 plate appearances last season, and if he can enjoy better health in 2017, he could raise his numbers to even greater heights.

Injuries
Side - Probable for start of season (Updated - 2/24/17)
News
Collins strained a left lat muscle and won't be able to throw for 10-14 days, though he'll likely be available to hit and run, Evan Woodbery of MLive.com reports.

This may put him a bit behind in Detroit's crowded center field competition, which also includes Mikie Mahtook and JaCoby Jones, possibly along with spring invitee Anthony Gose. Still, Collins looks like the favorite and could warrant a look on AL-only draft days.

Anibal Sanchez, #19

News
Sanchez said he was disappointed with how he pitched in his Cactus League debut Monday, but remained confident that he'll bounce back Evan Woodbery of MLive Media Group reports.

The veteran right-hander's frustration with how he pitched seemed justified considering that he allowed three earned runs and four hits in just one inning of work. However, Sanchez did not sound overly concerned about being able to straighten things out prior to the start of the regular season. While it's tough to take much away from a poor outing this early in spring training, Sanchez will obviously need to improve his effectiveness in future appearances this March in order to have a shot at cracking Detroit's starting rotation.
