Tigers head athletic trainer Kevin Rand said Victor Martinez (knee) has "been hitting for a bit more than a month" and "will initiate a baserunning program (Friday)."
Martinez, of course, is coming back from microfracture surgery on his left knee, but he's not expected to be limited during spring training and will be the regular DH for the Tigers in 2013. "He's doing real, real well," Rand said. "He's been hitting for a bit more than a month, from soft-toss swings to regular swings, feeling real well, and with no issues. He's been doing a running progression that's up to 20 minutes, again, without any issues. And he will initiate a baserunning program (Friday)."
