Player Notes
Victor Martinez went 1-for-4 with a two-run double in Thursday afternoon's 12-inning loss to the Mariners.

Advice: Martinez put the Tigers up 2-1 with a two-run double in the first inning. His team wouldn't score again in the contest, ultimately falling 3-2 in 12 innings. The double was V-Mart's 13th of the season. He struggled in April and May before missing a month with inflammation in his surgically-repaired left knee, but when he's healthy, he's a dynamic hitter. If he's able to stay in the lineup, there's room to improve on his current .266/.331/.399 slash. Case in point: He's hitting .307/.342/.533 with four homers and six doubles in the month of July. Martinez could make for a great trade target if you happen to be able to snag him from a napping owner who only sees the relatively low overall numbers.

Victor Martinez has been taking ground balls at first base.

Advice: Using Martinez at first base while Miguel Cabrera (calf) is out would free up the designated hitter spot for Tigers manager Brad Ausmus. While they've discussed putting V-Mart in the field, the skipper still thinks at this point that it would be too risky given Martinez's knee issues. "Not right now," Ausmus said. "I would say you’re not going to see him at first any time soon."
