Detroit Tigers’ J.D. Martinez will be out 3-4 more weeks

Detroit Tigers manager Brad Ausmus said rightfielder J.D. Martinez will miss 3-4 weeks of baseball activity, starting from Friday, due to a sprained Lisfranc ligament in his right foot. Ausmus also told reporters Martinez is wearing a cast that will be on for 7-10 days.

Ausmus had previously said he was optimistic about the results of two MRIs. Martinez went to Charlotte on Friday to have a stress CT scan performed by Dr. Robert Anderson. That test was used to determine the severity of the injury and to establish a timeline for how long Martinez would be out.

“It’s longer than I thought it was going to be,” Ausmus said. “But, like I’ve told you many times, I’m not a doctor.

J.D. Martinez ‘not proud’ after finishing last among defensive RFs

Tigers manager Brad Ausmus likened it to a slump.

“I think he had an off year; I don’t want to say he took a step back,” Ausmus said. “I think, quite frankly, it was a lack of concentration at times. I think a couple of balls hit his glove and bounced out. I’m not worried about him. I think he takes pride in his defense and he will return to form.

“Even good hitters have off years. Why couldn’t a good defender have an off year?”

Now remember, Martinez was a finalist for the 2015 Gold Glove Award. And besides, he is paid to crush the ball with his bat, not run through the outfield like a gazelle.
