There were a number of questions surrounding Victor Martinez this off-season. Many wondered if he would be rusty. Others asked if he had any left in the tank.
Victor Martinez continued his stellar start to the spring going 3-3 with a homerun in the Detroit Tigers tie with the Phillies on Sunday. His long ball today adds to an already impressive start to the season. V-Mart is hitting (.571) a homer and two runs scored. His dinger today fuels hopes that the year off might have helped return some power to the designated hitters skill set. If he is able to carry it over to the regular the Detroit Tigers line-up could be the best in baseball.
Martinez will try to continue his hot start when the Tigers meet the Phillies on Monday February 25th at 1:05 pm.
