News: Martinez (quadriceps) is in the lineup Friday, batting fifth, MLive's James Schmehl reports. Impact: He had missed the last two games with the injury, but he's healthy enough to get back out there for this weekend's series against the Angels. While his .382 BABIP demonstrates how fortunate he's been this season, it's not unrealistic to see something in the .270-.280 range over the rest of the season, with modest pop and solid counting stats batting in the middle of the Tigers' lineup.(RotoWire, )

News: Manager Brad Ausmus confirmed that Martinez was a late scratch Thursday night due to upper quad tightness, James Schmehl of MLive.com reports. Impact: Martinez should be available to pinch hit Thursday night according to Ausmus, so he doesn't appear to be far off from a return. All signs are pointing to the left fielder rejoining the lineup Friday night in Anaheim.(RotoWire, )

News: Martinez (quad) was a late scratch Thursday against the Angels. Impact: Martinez was originally slated to return to action for the Thursday night tilt, but it sounds as if the quad muscle that had been causing previous issues may have tightened up on him during pregame warmups. He'll miss his second straight contest as a result, with Rajai Davis taking over for him in left field. Martinez will likely eye a return to the lineup at some point this weekend.(RotoWire, )

News: Martinez (quad) is back in the lineup Thursday against the Angels.

Martinez already has seven multi-hit games on the month to go with a 1.001 July OPS, and will be a welcome addition to the Detroit lineup.(RotoWire, )

News: Martinez was kept out of Wednesday's lineup due to an upper quad injury, James Schmehl of MLive.com reports.
