Detroit Tigers designated hitter Victor Martinez spoke to press and said that he was unsure of where his future will take him after his 2014 season with the team. 

"We'll see what happens. This is a great organization that does what it needs to win," he said at the annual TigerFest 2014. "You're getting older and you know that the end of your career might be right in the corner," the 35-year-old told press. "It's sad, but you don't get the chance to keep trying and trying and trying."

Martinez, who's salary in 2013 totalled $13 million, understands where he stands in the team's order of priorities. After the 2014 season, players the Tigers are likely to want to keep like Cy Young award-winner Max Scherzer and MVP Miguel Cabrera's futures with the team will need to be decided as well. 

Martinez joined the Tigers in 2011 after previous years between the Cleveland Indians and the Boston Red Sox. After sitting out in 2012 with an ACL injury, he came back in 2013 to hit 14 home runs and 83 RBIs on 182 hits.
