Downside To Each Team’s Biggest Free Agent Signing: American League

Detroit Tigers: Victor Martinez
Martinez has been huge since the Tigers signed him three years ago, hitting .330, .301 and .335 respectively over his seasons in Detroit.  But age is starting to catch up to the 36-year old and he has yet another knee injury which could keep him out long-term to start the season; not something you want from a player who was given a four-year contract this offseason.  If the injury is a sign of things to come for the rest of Martinez’s career, this could turn out to be a really bad contract.
