Detroit Tigers designated hitter Victor Martinez was hospitalized for an irregular heartbeat.

The message? Martinez is feeling a lot better and was headed home, where he will stay in the metro Detroit area for further monitoring over the next week.

The Detroit Tigers and designated hitter Victor Martinez can now breathe a sigh of relief.

Martinez was taken to the hospital with an elevated heart rate and cold sweats, according to health officials.

"I talked to him", manager Brad Ausmus said.

He first reported the symptoms in the seventh inning of Thursday night's win over the Tampa Bay Rays, after reaching first base on an error by shortstop Daniel Robertson.

Martinez will remain on the 10-day disabled list while the rest of the team travels out West on Monday. "In that sense, not only is it an eye-opener for Vic, I think it's an eye-opener for his teammates". I'm guessing it's going to be "as tolerated" after that. He's under contract with the Tigers through the end of the 2018 season.

"We're going to wait and see how he's doing after we get back from the road trip", he said. "I would classify hitting as light cardio activity".

Martinez is now batting.261 with five home runs and 29 RBIs.

With Martinez on the DL, Ausmus elected to use Miguel Cabrera in the DH spot in Friday's 13-4 victory over the Rays.
