Tigers' Victor Martinez: Sticks on bench Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Martinez is not in the lineup Wednesday against the Reds, Chris McCosky of The Detroit News reports.

As expected, Martinez will stick on the bench for Wednesday's series finale with no designated hitter spot available in the Reds' National League ballpark. The veteran should be available off the bench and will likely return to the starting lineup Friday against the Indians.

Tigers' Victor Martinez: Heads to bench Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Martinez is not in the lineup for Tuesday's game against the Reds, Evan Woodbery of MLive.com reports.

Unsurprisingly, Martinez will head to the bench for Tuesday's series opener with no DH spot available in the Reds' NL ballpark. He'll likely stick on the bench for Wednesday's game in Cincinnati, though he should be available off the bench in both contests.

Tigers' Victor Martinez: Three hits Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Martinez went 3-for-4 with a strikeout in Saturday's win over the White Sox.

It's Martinez's first three-hit game since May 4 and prior to Saturday he had struggled with a .212/.255/.269 slash line through 52 at-bats in June. The 39-year-old's power has essentially dissipated since the start of 2017 as he has a .362 slugging percentage with only 14 home runs in over 600 at-bats.

Tigers' Victor Martinez: Bats fifth over the weekend
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Martinez batted fifth in all three of Detroit's games with Cleveland over the weekend after serving as the cleanup hitter for his previous 11 starts.

Manager Ron Gardenhire previously indicated that he didn't have plans to move Martinez down from the cleanup spot, but the veteran simply isn't providing much pop, with just a .656 OPS and four home runs this season. Jeimer Candelario, who has an .857 OPS and 10 home runs, batted in front of Martinez in each game over the weekend. It remains to be seen if this switch is permanent, but the numbers definitely suggest a move down in the order is warranted for Martinez.

Tigers' Victor Martinez: Bangs out two hits Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Martinez went 2-for-3 with an RBI in Saturday's win over the Indians.

Martinez delivered at the plate in this one but his limitations were also on display, as the Tigers ran for the veteran in the seventh inning to get better speed on the bases. The 39-year-old is strictly a designated hitter these days, which caps his value in many fantasy formats.
