Tigers' Victor Martinez: Goes deep Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Martinez went 2-for-5 with his 10th home run of the season, a solo shot, in Friday's loss to the Dodgers.

Martinez now has home runs in the last two games he's played, and he's posted an .822 OPS over his last 10 games (.709 OPS for the season). Martinez's home run and RBI numbers are way down from last year, but the veteran could still give fantasy owners a boost over the final weeks of the season.

Tigers' Victor Martinez: Takes seat Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Martinez is out of the lineup Wednesday against the Rangers.

The Tigers are eager to limit Miguel Cabrera's duties in the field after the former MVP returned from a two-game absence due to a back injury to play nine innings at first base Tuesday, so he'll slide over to the DH spot Wednesday while Martinez sits. The benching comes at an unfortunate time for Martinez owners with the 38-year-old having delivered three multi-hit performances in his past six starts.

Tigers' Victor Martinez: Goes deep in Tuesday loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Martinez went 2-for-3 with a solo home run, a walk and two runs scored in Tuesday's loss to the Rangers.

After hitting 27 home runs in 2016, Martinez has only nine this season. His .256 average and .699 OPS are also behind his rates from last season. However, the veteran has hits in five of the last six games, including three multi-hit efforts. Martinez has proven over his career that he's capable of putting a hot streak together for fantasy owners, so he might be a worthy investment in leagues where he's available.

Tigers' Victor Martinez: Sitting Monday with no DH available
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Martinez is out of the lineup Monday against the Pirates.

With the Tigers kicking off a home-and-home series with the Pirates in Pittsburgh on Monday, it's expected that Martinez will hit the bench for back-to-back days before settling back in as the DH when the series returns to Detroit on Wednesday. Martinez logged five games at first base a season ago, but the Tigers have deployed the 38-year-old exclusively as a designated hitter in 2017.

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

Martinez is not in the lineup Tuesday against the Yankees.

Martinez is 0-for-8 with four strikeouts over his past two contests, so he'll head to the bench for his first breather since the All-Star break. Miguel Cabrera will take over at DH for the game, opening up a spot for John Hicks to draw the start at first base.
