Victor Martinez

Victor Martinez had the best year of his career in 2014 with the Detroit Tigers, setting career bests in batting average (.335), home runs (32), on-base percentage (.405) and OPS (.974). Martinez’s response when asked if he thinks he’ll be a Detroit Tiger in 2015?

"“They know. They know, so we’ll see what happens.”"

"“I wasn’t really thinking about (my future). My teammates and myself had a lot of work to do and unfortunately we didn’t get it done. Now, we’ll see what happens. It’s time to go home and spend time with the kids and see what happens.”"

Whether or not Martinez will be back in the D for another title run in 2015 may be up to Dombrowski. After V-Marts career year there is a chance that a bidding was could ensue. If it does, Dombrowski will have to out bid a number of teams rumored to be interested.

ESPN’s Jim Bowden has said that the Seattle Mariners are among the teams interested in Martinez.
