The Detroit Tigers got some bad news today when they learned that slugger Victor Martinez will likely miss the whole season with a torn ACL, tweets Jon Heyman.

This could open up possibilities for one of the sluggers still on the free agent market, as Detroit will likely want to replace Martinez’s bat in the lineup, tweets Danny Knobler.

Last season Martinez most DHed, hitting .330 with 12 home runs and 103 RBI. Potential DH bats still on the market include Vladimir Guerrero, Carlos Pena and Pat Burrell. Prince Fielder would likely be too pricey for the Tigers.
