VICTOR MARTINEZ RUMORS

Did the Tigers wait too long to put Victor Martinez on the DL?

When you look at how poorly Victor Martinez has played this season, it's hard to imagine that he's the same player who finished runner-up in the AL MVP voting last year. The 36-year-old DH is hitting .216 with one home run and 15 RBI this year, which is a far cry from the numbers he put up in 2014: .355 batting average, .409 on-base percentage, 32 home runs and 103 RBI. Martinez...

His knee has been sore...

Game 2015.40: Brewers at Tigers

(doesn’t he look injured in the pic above?) Victor Martinez and his inability to hit left handed (against right handed pitching) has been the most popular Tiger topic as of late. He’s in a massive slump (let’s hope it’s a slump), and looked downright awful in two key late inning game-tying/go-ahead situations over the past two nights. He weakly grounded out to 3rd on Sunday...

Game 2015.36: Tigers at Cardinals

The Tigers tried something a little different yesterday (no, I don’t mean scoring run, although that too) and it worked: going with both Davis and Gose in the outfield, resting Victor Martinez and letting JD bat 4th, and giving Holaday his first start all worked like a charm, and the Tigers pulled out the series win. Gose and Davis combined for 7-for-10 with a double and triple...

Victor Martinez tore his meniscus while playing catch

Earlier this offseason, the Tigers announced that freshly re-signed DH Victor Martinez would be undergoing surgery to repair a torn meniscus. He’ll likely be ready for Opening Day, but at 36 and coming off the best season of his career, this wasn’t the news that Detroit wanted to hear. But how did Martinez tear his meniscus? Well, he was playing catch…outside of his house...

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...

Detroit Tigers: Grading the first third of the season

Remember when the Detroit Tigers were riding high and had an 11 game road winning streak? Neither do I. Remember when the Tigers had swept the Boston Red Sox at Fenway Park for the first time since 1983? Neither do I. Ok well, maybe I do. However it seems like it was a thing of the past. What I do remember was the night they flew into Cleveland late after their sweep of the Red Sox...

Detroit Tigers: Why Victor Martinez has been their best player so far

The Detroit Tigers have been on a tear this season as they have finally begun to click on all cylinders and have been looking like the team who is the favorite to get back to the World Series this year.
