Tigers’ Martinez injures knee, could miss season
Cabrera hit .344 with 30 home runs and 105 RBIs last season, and Avila hit .295 with 19 homers. Shortstop Jhonny Peralta also had a fine year with the bat, hitting .299 with 21 homers. The Tigers may need all three to repeat those productive performances in Martinez’s absence.
When Martinez was acquired last offseason, Detroit was looking for another big bat to support Cabrera. Martinez provided one, but outfielder Magglio Ordonez and second baseman Carlos Guillen struggled with injuries, and neither was expected back with the Tigers.
Detroit traded for outfielder Delmon Young last August, and the Tigers could get a boost if outfielder Brennan Boesch can stay healthy. Boesch hit 16 homers in 115 games last year, but he was shut down late in the season with an injured right thumb.
