News: Martinez has been brought up by the Detroit Tigers after a torrid stretch at Triple-A Toledo. Detroit selected the contract of the 26-year-old outfielder from Toledo before Monday night's game against the Chicago White Sox. Impact: Martinez hit .251 with 24 homers and 126 RBIs in 252 games for Houston from 2011-13. He was batting .308 with 10 homers and 22 RBIs in 17 games for Toledo. (STATS, 6:33pm)

News: The Tigers recalled Martinez from Triple-A Toledo on Monday, James Schmehl of MLive.com reports. Impact: It's not certain who Martinez will replace on the roster, but it seems likely that a reliever will be removed from the roster to open a spot. Martinez, who made swing changes over the offseason after being release by the Astros, mashed with Toledo, tallying 10 home runs and 22 RBI in 17 games. However, he may find playing time hard to come by with the big club, as the Tigers have used the starting outfield of Rajai Davis, Austin Jackson, and Torii Hunter 11 times in 15 games this season.(RotoWire, )
