DETROIT -- Victor Martinez is off and running the bases.
The Tigers designated hitter has stepped up the running portion of rehabilitation after missing last season because of an injury to his left knee. He had micro-fracture surgery to repair a torn anterior cruciate ligament suffered on Jan. 17, 2012.
Tigers head athletic trainer Kevin Rand on Friday supervised Martinezs first running drills, which took place at Joker Marchant Stadium in Lakeland, Fla. Rand said Martinez's full recovery Saturday allows the potent switch-hitter to stay on a schedule of three weekly baseball-running sessions.
Victor is not running at full speed, but he is running very well, Rand said Monday. We are doing low-volume right now with a warm up, turns at the bases, simulated running out of the batters box, and going from first to third.
"We will progress to medium-volume and high-volume workouts by going at higher speeds and giving him more reps.
Rand said Martinez wont be pushed in Grapef...

DETROIT -- The Tigers sent out their spring-training invites Wednesday morning, and a very familiar name is on the guest list.
Utility player Don Kelly will get yet another shot to make the Tigers roster, as will highly-touted prospect Nick Castellanos.
Here's the complete list of the 17 players who have been invited to major-league camp this spring in Lakeland, Fla.:
Veteran infielder-outfielder Don Kelly has agreed to a minor-league deal with the Detroit Tigers, according to a report. Kelly, 33, batted .186 with one home run and seven RBI last season for the Tigers. He became a free agent in October when Detroit didn't include him on its 40-man roster after he rejected a minor-league assignment. A .232 career hitter, Kelly will be invited...

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...
While the Baltimore Orioles have said they’re not interested
in trading shortstop J.J. Hardy to the Detroit Tigers in exchange for
right-hander Rick Porcello, Jon Paul Morosi wonders if the club might be
interested in parting ways with closer Jim Johnson in order to acquire the
young starting pitcher.
Johnson was beyond solid in 2012, leading the majors in
So the Rick Porcello trade rumors continue as Jon Morosi reports that the Arizona Diamondbacks are now interested in the young starting pitcher.
#Mariners and #DBacks have had talks with the #Tigers about acquiring Rick Porcello, sources say.

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...
