Player Notes
Victor Martinez (knee) is confident that he will be ready in time for Opening Day.

Advice: Martinez is recovering from offseason meniscus surgery in his left knee, but said he should require only two weeks' worth of at-bats to get ready. The slugger led the league in OPS at .974 and in on-base percentage at .407 last season while batting .335 with 103 RBI while cranking out a career-high 32 home runs.

Victor Martinez (knee) ran on the anti-gravity treadmill and took 30 swings off a tee from both sides of the plate on Monday.

Advice: Martinez arrived at Tigers' camp on Monday morning and didn't waste any time doing his first workout. The veteran slugger underwent surgery on February 10 to repair the medial meniscus in his left knee and will have a late start in spring training, but the Tigers are confident he'll get enough at-bats to be ready for the season.

Victor Martinez (knee) has arrived at Tigers camp.

Advice: And he's expected to go through his first spring workout Monday morning. Martinez needed surgery on February 10 to repair the medial meniscus in his left knee and probably won't get into Grapefruit League games for at least two weeks. The veteran designated hitter is not certain to be ready for the opening of the 2015 regular season, though the Tigers are saying for now that he will be a go.

Victor Martinez (knee) is scheduled to arrive to Tigers spring training camp on Monday.

Advice: He's currently recovering from surgery earlier in the month to repair the medial meniscus in his left knee, but could still be ready for the start of the regular season. Martinez indicated that he may swing a bat and take soft toss as early as Monday.

Tigers manager Brad Ausmus said Tuesday that Victor Martinez (knee) is "a week out, right around there" from reporting to spring training.

Advice: Martinez underwent surgery earlier this month to repair the medial meniscus in his left knee and has been working out on his own away from camp. He's on pace to be ready around mid-March or slightly after, which means that he should have plenty of time to get at-bats before Opening Day.
