Tigers put DH Victor Martinez on DL with irregular heartbeat

Tigers place Victor Martinez on disabled list after irregular heartbeat

Martinez was hospitalized after Thursday's game with an irregular heartbeat.

"I didn't find out about it until really, when he came out of the game because he was playing through it", Brad Ausmus said on Friday. That's all the information available at the moment. "So in that sense, I think not only is it an eye opener for Vic it's an eye opener for his teammates".

He will not travel on the Tigers' upcoming swing through Seattle and San Diego.

His prognosis will be taken slowly when he returns.

The good news here is that Martinez - since placed on the 10-day disabled list - has been released from the hospital.

Deputy AG: No Plans to Fire Special Counsel Robert Mueller
The revelation came after Ruddy was at the White House on Monday for a meeting with Chief Strategist Steve Bannon. Donald Trump believes that he can make the investigation go away if he fires Mueller .

With Martinez on the DL, Ausmus elected to use Miguel Cabrera in the DH spot in Friday's 13-4 victory over the Rays.

There's not a treatment template for this because it's so unusual in professional sports. He's under contract with the Tigers through the end of the 2018 season. "If (Martinez) gets the doctor's clearance and he feels okay, he might start hitting again".

Martinez is a five-time All-Star and two-time Silver Slugger victor and is slashing.261/.337/.376 with five home runs and 29 RBI this season.
