JD Martineza€™s day off Saturday against his old team did not sit well with some.

The Boston Red Sox All-Star outfielder was out of the lineup for their game against the Detroit Tigers, marking just his seventh missed contest of the year.

After the game (a 5-0 victory for Detroit), Tigers starter Mike Fiers, who fired 6.1 shutout innings to earn the win, seemed to rip Martinez. He said that Martinez was scared to face him and accused the AL RBIs leader of asking for a day off against him, according to Anthony Fenech of the Detroit Free Press.

Jason Beck of MLB.com indicated that the comment was in good fun though, as the two used to be teammates in college at Nova Southeastern University.
