Tigers' Victor Martinez: Feels good after normal offseason
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Martinez, who underwent surgery in September to correct an irregular heartbeat, said he went through his normal offseason training program and feels fine for the start of spring training, Jason Beck of MLB.com reports.

Before being shut down for good following the heart procedure, Martinez was in the midst of one of the worst seasons of his career in 2017, finishing with a .255/.324/.372 slash line across 435 plate appearances. While it's encouraging that he's entering the 2018 campaign at full strength, Martinez's age -- he turned 39 in December -- and stark downturn in the power department last season tempers enthusiasm about his fantasy prospects. It doesn't help matters that he'll only have eligibility as a utility option in most fantasy settings now that he's exclusively a designated hitter at this stage of his career.

Tigers' Victor Martinez: Cleared for baseball activities
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Martinez (heart) has a clean bill of health and has been cleared for full baseball activity, Chris McCosky of The Detroit News reports.

He underwent a heart ablation procedure in October, which apparently went well, as Martinez has been training and rehabbing since early November. There have been talks about the Tigers trying to reach a buyout with Martinez, who is due $18 million in the final year of his contract. However, that is spent money, so the Tigers will see what he has left in the tank this spring. He hit .255/.324/.372 with 10 home runs in 107 games last year -- a far cry from the .289/.351/.476 line he put up in 2016. If he can have a productive first half, the Tigers would look to deal him to another American League club and see if they can get a lower-level prospect in exchange for covering the rest of his contract. Of course, if he is struggling, there is no reason to play him over the younger players on the roster, so at that point they may negotiate a buyout. This is likely to be the final year of his career.

Tigers' Victor Martinez: Reinstated from disabled list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Martinez (chest) was reinstated from the 60-day DL on Friday.

Martinez underwent surgery to correct an irregular heartbeat in mid-September, and will continue recovering over the next couple of months. It's expected that he will be ready for the 2018 season, and should be fully healed by spring training.

Tigers' Victor Martinez: Successfully undergoes heart surgery
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Martinez (chest) underwent heart ablation surgery Monday, Chris McCosky of The Detroit News reports.

Martinez was placed on the disabled list Aug. 27 with an irregular heartbeat and underwent surgery Monday to correct that issue. He's done for the 2017 season and will set his sights on returning at full strength in 2018.

Tigers' Victor Martinez: Hits 60-day DL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Tigers transferred Martinez (chest) to the 60-day disabled list Sunday.

It had been revealed a day earlier that Martinez would be shut down for the season as he prepares to undergo a heart ablation procedure, so his shifting to the 60-day DL is merely a paper move. The transaction will open up a spot on the 40-man roster for Triple-A Toledo pitcher Artie Lewicki, who is scheduled to start Monday's series opener against the Royals.
