Player Notes
Victor Martinez said that he dealt with some soreness in his surgically-repaired knee on Thursday.

Advice: V-Mart homered Thursday, but Tigers manager Brad Ausmus said that he felt something in the knee while stretching to try to beat out a throw to sixth base in the first inning. The 36-year-old said it's just something he will likely have to deal with. It's not the best sign, but it doesn't sound like something that will impact his readiness for the season.

Victor Martinez homered off the Orioles' Kevin Gausman in Thursday's win.

Advice: Martinez was playing for the second straight day and making his third start at DH since returning from knee surgery last week. He's 2-for-10.

Victor Martinez (knee) will serve as the designated hitter Wednesday.

Advice: Martinez, who is about six weeks removed from knee surgery, made his Grapefruit League debut Sunday and played in a minor league game Tuesday. Things are looking good for him and Miguel Cabrera (foot) to both be in the Opening Day lineup.

Victor Martinez will serve as designated hitter in the Tigers' split squad game against the Braves Sunday.

Advice: Martinez played in a minor league game Saturday, so it's promising that he feels good enough to do it again a day later. The DH even trotted around the bases after homering in his final at-bat of the day. V-Mart is still questionable for the start of the season, but with each new hurdle cleared he gets closer and closer to being in the Tigers' Opening Day lineup.

Victor Martinez (knee) did agility drills and took on-field batting practice Wednesday.

Advice: Martinez ran cones in short 15-yard bursts but didn't make very hard cuts on his surgically-repaired left knee. Tigers manager Brad Ausmus wouldn't guess when V-Mart might be cleared for Grapefruit League play and acknowledged that his status for Opening Day is up in the air. "There are still hurdles to cross," said Ausmus.
