Victor Martinez went 1-for-4 with a two-run double in Thursday afternoon's 12-inning loss to the Mariners.
Martinez put the Tigers up 2-1 with a two-run double in the first inning. His team wouldn't score again in the contest, ultimately falling 3-2 in 12 innings. The double was V-Mart's 13th of the season. He struggled in April and May before missing a month with inflammation in his surgically-repaired left knee, but when he's healthy, he's a dynamic hitter. If he's able to stay in the lineup, there's room to improve on his current .266/.331/.399 slash. Case in point: He's hitting .307/.342/.533 with four homers and six doubles in the month of July. Martinez could make for a great trade target if you happen to be able to snag him from a napping owner who only sees the relatively low overall numbers. Jul 23 - 5:51 PM
