Tigers outfielder JD Martinez sprains foot, out several days

Detroit Tigers outfielder J.D. Martinez sprained his right foot making a shoestring catch Saturday and is expected to be sidelined for several days.

X-rays were negative. Martinez left the Tigers' complex in Lakeland, Florida, in a protective boot for precautionary purposes.

"We'll see about it tomorrow," he told reporters. "I know as much about it as you guys do. It's good that I'm able to move on it."

Martinez will likely be out of the lineup until late next week.

Martinez hit .307 with 22 home runs and 68 RBIs in 120 games last season.
