Detroit Tigers outfielder J.D. Martinez was scratched from the team's exhibition lineup Saturday with what the team is calling a sore pectoral muscle. No word on the severity or when/how Martinez injured the pectoral but the Tigers will likely treat him with a cautious approach this early in the spring.
Analysis: Count me among those who are big fans of Martinez who is quite underrated as a proven 30-homer bat who also can hit for average. With so many sluggers in today's game also toting nasty averages, this is not something to look past when weighing Martinez' value. He is a top OF 2 bat in 2017 fantasy baseball.
