Lakeland, Fla. — Still waiting.

The Tigers sent the MRI results on J.D. Martinez’s right foot to a specialist and still hadn’t heard back from him Monday morning.

“The doctor that is looking at it is in surgery this morning,” manager Brad Ausmus said. “He’s looked at it, but he hasn’t reported back.”

Martinez suffered a mid-right foot sprain on Saturday.

“It was encouraging that J.D. came in today and said he felt better,” Ausmus said. “I don’t think it’s bleak. But again, we want the specialist to look at it.
