Martinez, Tigers take on Twins

Victor Martinez will visit Target Field for perhaps the last time in his career Thursday when the Detroit Tigers open a four-game series with the Minnesota Twins.

The soon-to-be 40-year-old designated hitter had suggested during spring training that retirement was on the horizon and his comments Wednesday afternoon made that decision appear all the more imminent.

"I'm pretty sure this is going to be it," Martinez said during a postgame interview FOX Sports Detroit's broadcast. "This is going to be it. I'm just enjoying these last six weeks and I'll finally go home."
