 slugger J.D. Martinez are good friends Tony Conigliaro Jersey , but Fiers suggested Saturday that Martinez didn’t want to face him.After Fiers allowed seven hits, three walks and no runs while striking out six over 6.1 innings in a 5-0 win over Boston on Saturday, he badgered his buddy, according to Anthony Fenech of the Detroit Free Press: “He ducked me today. He had been talking about that all year and I think he told [Red Sox manager Alex] Cora to get a day off against me.”’s Jason Beck confirmed that Fiers was simply teasing his former college teammate.Fiers and Martinez both attended Nova Southeastern University in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, before enjoying success in Major League Baseball.Martinez Rafael Devers Jersey , who is in the midst of his first season with the Red Sox, is putting up MVP-caliber numbers with a .325 batting average, 29 home runs and 80 RBI.Meanwhile, Fiers has been solid in his first season with the Tigers, as he is 7-6 with a 3.49 ERA and 82 strikeouts in 111 innings.Per Will Burchfield of 97.1 The Ticket, the career matchup between Martinez and Fiers is decidedly one-sided , as Martinez is 7-for-14 with two home runs and two doubles.It is possible that Martinez and Fiers could be reunited in the coming weeks, as ESPN’s Buster Olney reported that the Red Sox were among the teams evaluating Fiers as a potential trade acquisition ahead of the July 31 non-waiver trade deadline.Fiers did not make the Houston Astros’ postseason roster in 2017 after struggling during the regular season, but he could be a good option for the back end of Boston’s rotation heading toward the playoffs by virtue of his bounce-back year.For now, the Red Sox will focus on ensuring Martinez is 100 percent, as his off day came after he crashed into the wall during Friday’s win over the Tigers. CLEARWATER, Fla. (AP) — New York Mets third baseman David Wright played his first game in almost a year Sunday David Ross Jersey , going 0 for 3 to start a minor league rehabilitation assignment.Wright struck out twice and flied out for St. Lucie in the Class A Florida State League. The seven-time All-Star played five innings in the field and didn’t get a grounder during a 4-1 loss to Clearwater.The 35-year-old Wright has been beset by back, neck and shoulder trouble in recent seasons. His last game in the major leagues was May 27, 2016 — he had a brief stint in the minors last August before being shut down.The Mets captain is hoping to play again in the majors this year.“I wouldn’t be out here in 95-degree sunny Florida dripping sweat if I didn’t think I could make it back,” he told reporters.“What I’ve kind of come to realize, these last two months of this baseball-rehab stuff, is that I certainly need off days periodically Steve Cishek Jersey ,” he said. “We’re going to look at that when we start scheduling for the next week or so.”
