DETROIT -- Victor Martinez's absence from the Tigers' starting lineup lasted a day. Detroit's designated hitter returned Wednesday after missing Tuesday's game with a cut on the top of his right thumb.
The cut required eight stitches.
"The word is that it doesn't seem to bother him at all [swinging] right-handed, but I can't swear to that," manager Jim Leyland said.
With a left-handed pitcher, Mark Buehrle, scheduled to start for the Jays, Martinez wouldn't have to worry about swinging from the left side.
