The results of Russell Martin’s MRI exam came back today, and the results were not good, as the team announced before tonight’s game:
Martin to the DL with a right hip labral tear. He’ll be reevaluated tomorrow. Reed Johnson activated for tonight’s game.
Martin tripped after not sliding at home plate last night in the second inning, trying to score on a sacrifice fly. Martin was tagged out, and then tripped a few steps after running through the plate.
Johnson was on the disabled list with a sore back, but completed a two-game rehabilitation assignment with Class A Inland Empire on Tuesday night.
