MLB Injury News:
Can you imagine the Detroit Tigers' offense had they had Victor Martinez healthy last year? Well, for 2013 you won't have to. After suffering a knee injury and undergoing surgery last year, Martinez missed the entire season, but he will be ready for spring training this year.
Jon Morosi of Fox Sports says that Martinez's agent expects the 34-year old to be more than just ready for spring training.
Update on Victor Martinez from his agent, Jose Mijares: "He will be 100% for spring training. That is really good news." @mlbonfox

The Tigers signed Prince Fielder when they learned of Martinez's injury, and the team managed to make it all the way to the World Series with Fielder playing first base. Now, with Martinez back, the offense will only get better.
In 10 Major League seasons, Martinez has hit .303/.370/.469. He spent the majority of his career with the Cleveland Indians before moving over to the Boston Red Sox and eventually the Tigers. With Detroit in 2011, Martinez hit .330/.380/.470. He is a four-time All-Star.

It is nearly a year now since Victor Martinez
destroyed his left knee during an off-season workout near his Orlando, Florida
home. The Tigers switch-hitter extraordinaire

lateral meniscus during a side-stride drill last January 13.
The former Cleveland Indian underwent micro fracture surgery, in the...

It isnt on Justin Uptons level, but the Rick Porcello trade saga continues.
The Detroit Tigers, who have six starting pitchers, have continued to discuss Porcello with the Arizona Diamondbacks, Seattle Mariners and perhaps other teams, according to major league sources.
The Tigers likely would ask for a shortstop, late-inning reliever or right-handed-hitting outfielder in return...

In the latest edition of the WFNY podcast I talked to Jon with the express purpose of only loosely talking about sports. We ended up talking an awful lot about sports, but not in the typical “what do you think of this and what will happen next?” kind of way. Instead we talked about sports fans and the latest wave of ironic, hipster anti-style and how that intersects with sports...
