J.D. Martinez Homers in Rehab Game
J.D. Martinez has yet to play a game in a Detroit Tigers uniform this season, but his rehab assignments have been going well.
Martinez (foot sprain) has been in Lakeland with the Class-A Advanced Flying Tigers and hit a two run home run on Saturday during a 7-2 win over Palm Beach.
Brad Ausmus speaking with the media after the game said Martinez is scheduled to join Toledo today in time for a series against Gwinnett that starts on Monday. He said that before joking "as long as he didn't re-injure his foot rounding the bases".
Martinez has hit 60 home runs with the Tigers while hitting .293 in two seasons.
