Worth noting

• Ausmus said Victor Martinez will likely catch at some point during next week's road trip to face National League clubs in Los Angeles and San Diego, saying the Tigers need his bat in the lineup. He can also play first base, shifting Miguel Cabrera to third. Martinez caught three games last season.
