2017 FANTASY BASEBALL ISSUES: V-MART BATTING SECOND CHANGES HIS OUTLOOK

                                                                   

It appears as though the Detroit Tigers will go with Victor Martinez in the two hole in terms of the team's 2017 batting order based on early spring lineups.  Martinez is slated to once again bat second for the team's exhibition game Saturday and it looks like he will be the bridge between leadoff man Ian Kinsler and Miguel Cabrera in the three spot.  This will change the fantasy baseball impact on Martinez of course as he will now lose some RBI that he once had when he was batting cleanup last season but he will stand to gain in the runs department.  The bigger question is whether or nor Martinez can stay healthy and whether the jump in his K/9 rate is a clear indication of his age taking a toll.  Right now Martinez still makes for a very good UTIL or CI bat but again age will likely steal some more numbers this season.
