J.D. Martinez hit his fifth homer Sunday off Nationals prospect A.J. Cole.
Judging from Brad Ausmus' spring lineups, it looks like Martinez will hit ahead of Yoenis Cespedes to begin the season, which is good news for Martinez and bad news for Cespedes. Martinez, of course, was terrific in the fifth spot last season, and there wasn't any reason to move him down. Cespedes, though, is terribly overqualified to bat sixth. It's a good problem for the Tigers to have, but the easy solution -- batting either Cespedes or Miguel Cabrera second -- has eluded Ausmus. Mar 22 - 5:36 PM
