Martinez scratched with stiff neck

Victor Martinez was walking around the clubhouse Wednesday, but his stiff neck is going to keep him out of the starting lineup as a precaution. John Murrian, just sent to minor-league camp Tuesday, heads back across the street today to start at catcher.

Leyland confirmed Magglio Ordonez and Jhonny Peralta are getting days off. They were here for the workouts, but they’ll be heading out shortly.
