Player Notes
Victor Martinez went 4-for-5 with a homer and two RBI on Friday, leading the Tigers in an 9-2 rout of the Twins in Minnesota.

Advice: Martinez delivered an RBI single and scored a run as part of a three-run rally in the first inning. He added a towering solo shot off of Casey Fien in the eighth inning to increase the club's advantage to 5-2, then doubled and scored his third run of the night in the ninth inning. He was an afterthought in most fantasy drafts this spring, but has turned back the clock in the early going, slashing .319/.388/.625 with five home runs and 17 RBI.

Victor Martinez belted a three-run homer and walked twice against the Athletics in Wednesday's win.

Advice: A late-spring hamstring injury scared a lot of fantasy owners away, but V-Mart remains one of the best pure hitters in the American League. He displayed every facet of what makes him a special hitter on Wednesday. He walked twice, struck out zero times, and homered -- truly blending power and plate discipline. At 37 years old and with a brittle body, he's not the powerhouse he was back in 2014, but he still has one of the prettiest swings in baseball.
