Victor Martinez released from hospital, to rest for week

"He's not feeling well", Ausmus said after the game "He got cold sweats, dizzy and his heart was racing".

"I talked to him", manager Brad Ausmus said. That's all the information available at the moment.

Miguel Cabrera, who hit a game-winning homer in the ninth inning on Thursday, was the designated hitter Friday against the Rays.

"I had a former teammate have a heart attack and die".

His prognosis will be taken slowly when he returns.

Following the ominous diagnosis, Martinez will remain in the hospital one more night to undergo further tests. I'm guessing it's going to be "as tolerated" after that.

"This isn't a classic baseball DL situation, so I don't want to speak out of turn", Ausmus said.

He drilled 27 home runs a year ago and gives the Tigers another power threat in the order alongside the likes of Miguel Cabrera, Justin Upton and J.D. Martinez.

San Antonio Spurs forward LaMarcus Aldridge was diagnosed with an irregular heartbeat in March and missed a week.

"We're just going to wait and see how he's doing when we get back from the road trip", Ausmus said.

Through 60 games this year, Martinez had been hitting.261/.337/.376 (93 OPS+) with five home runs and 29 RBI.
