Player Notes
Victor Martinez will begin rehabbing his ailing left knee on Friday.

Advice: The Tigers put V-Mart on the disabled list earlier this week after he had another setback with his surgically-repaired knee. The Tigers haven't set a timetable for his return, but they'll proceed cautiously.

Tigers placed DH Victor Martinez on the 15-day disabled list with left knee inflammation.

Advice: Martinez felt another pinch in his ailing knee during Monday's game and was noticeably hobbled, so it didn't make much sense for the Tigers to keep running him out there. It's unclear how much time he'll need to miss. The Tigers have called up outfielder Tyler Collins to replace him on the active roster.

Tigers manager Brad Ausmus said after Monday's game that the club is "going to have to at least talk about other options" at designated hitter.

Advice: Victor Martinez felt a pinch in his nagging left knee injury on Monday and also had another hitless game. That the knee was still bothering him after he essentially had a full four days of rest obviously is not a good sign. An update on Martinez, who is now hitting just .216/.308/.270 for the season, should be available on Tuesday.

Victor Martinez (knee) is back in the Tigers' starting lineup on Monday night against the Brewers.

Advice: V-Mart wasn't used much over the weekend in St. Louis because the Tigers were playing in a National League park and the veteran designated hitter has been battling some minor knee discomfort. He is at cleanup for Detroit in his return to action Monday at Comerica Park.

Mon, May 18 Rotoworld
Victor Martinez (knee) is available off the bench for Sunday's game against the Cardinals.

Advice: Tigers manager Brad Ausmus indicated Sunday that Martinez had not been available to pinch-hit the previous three games due to his knee issues. He's expected to return to his regular role as the Tigers' designated hitter on Monday against the Brewers.

Victor Martinez will be used only in a pinch-hitting capacity this weekend during an interleague series in St. Louis.

Advice: Martinez was also rested on Thursday, so he'll be out of the lineup four days in a row. He's batting just .226/.320/.283 this season, as he's clearly not himself while trying to play through pain in his surgically-repaired left knee.

Victor Martinez is not in the Tigers' lineup Thursday.

Advice: It's a day of rest for the 36-year-old designated hitter, who's batting just .226/.320/.283 in 32 games this season. J.D. Martinez is at DH and Rajai Davis is in right field Thursday afternoon against the Twins.
