VICTOR MARTINEZ RUMORS

Bringing Victor Home

Today continues DTTWLN’s three week examination of the Indians’ 2014 season and where it fell short of the playoff expectations established last winter. The staff will examine where the season went wrong and the challenges the front office faces to make the Indians contenders in 2015. Let’s take a trip down memory lane. In 1996, the Indians signed a young catcher out of Venezuela...

Detroit Tigers: 3 burning questions this offseason

In order to get back to the World Series next year, the Detroit Tigers have some offseason issues that need to be addressed and some questions that need to be answered. 1. Will Max Scherzer come back? To me this seems like a no-brainer, but anything can happen. Pitcher Max Scherzer was the Tigers best pitcher in 2014 as he led the team with 18 wins, 252 strikeouts, and an ERA of...

Victor Martinez will give Detroit the first chance in free agency

The ultra-slim chances that I had as a Cleveland Indians fan to have Victor Martinez back in a Tribe uniform have gotten even slimmer. If the Indians’ own self-professed budgetary constraints this off-season weren’t enough, the rumor mill states that Victor prefers to stay in Detroit and will give them every chance to sign him before going to the free agency market at large....

VMart will give the Tigers the first shot to sign him in free agency

After hitting .335 with 32 home runs and 103 RBIs, 35-year old Victor Martinez had a career-year in 2014 for the Tigers and set himself up for a nice contract this offseason as he hits free agency.

Detroit Tigers awards via isportsweb

The 2014 season for the Detroit Tigers was a disappointment after being a favorite to win the World Series. With a new look bullpen and a strong starting rotation, the Tigers failed to meet these expectations as they only won the American League Central by just one game over the Kansas City Royals, who are still playing, and suffered a first round sweeping of the Baltimore Orioles...

V-Mart on whether or not he’ll be back with the Tigers in 2015: ‘They know, so we’ll see what happens’

One of the many questions the Tigers have this offseason is what to do with Victor Martinez? V-Mart, finished his season hitting .339/.409/.565 in 151 games, with a career-high 32 home runs and 103 RBIs. Seems like a no-brainer it terms of bringing Martinez back right? Yeah pretty much, even considering he’ll be 36 once next season comes around. But what does V-Mart think of returning...
