FANTASY BASEBALL NEWS: VICTOR MARTINEZ (HAMSTRING) BACK IN LINEUP, WILL PINCH-HIT FIRST TWO GAMES

Detroit Tigers DH Victor Martinez returned to the exhibition lineup on Tuesday after sitting out since March 14 with a strained hamstring.  The current plan is for Martinez to play the rest of the spring training slate in order to get enough work for the start of the season.  Martinez is expected to be on the bench and only take part as a pinch-hitter due to the Tigers playing the Miami Marlins in their park and with NL rules. 

Analysis:  Good news for those holding stock in Martinez as he should be ready to go after the Miami series but his health has been a constant source of furstration for years.  That is what happens when you have the mileage Martinez has given his past as a catcher.  He is nothing but a low-end first base option where he qualifies and even a lower tiered UTIL guy.
