J.D. Martinez (elbow) took batting practice on Thursday.
It's the first time he's done so since suffering a non-displaced fracture of the radial neck of his right elbow. That's the good news. The bad news is Martinez still isn't feeling 100 percent when he throws. It's possible the Tigers could bring him back to serve as a designated hitter initially. "It still bothers him to throw, not so much to hit," manager Brad Ausmus said. "We’re trying to figure it out. If he can hit and we think he’s close to being able to throw, when is the time to send him down and maybe have him DH for ‘X’ number of games and then put him in the outfield so he gets some at-bats?"
