Martinez (foot) indicated he was feeling sore after logging nine at-bats in an extended spring training game Friday, but could still play in another game Monday, Chris McCosky of MLive.com reports.

Martinez, who went 3-for-9 during Friday's game, took Saturday and Sunday off to receive treatment on his right foot, and the Tigers are hopeful that's all he'll need for the soreness to subside. Even if the Tigers decide to err on the side of caution and hold Martinez out Monday, it shouldn't be viewed as a major setback. While the fact that Martinez is facing pitching is encouraging, the Tigers may not have a clear idea of when he'll rejoin the big club until he tests out his foot by playing right field.
