The Pirates are spiraling downward right now so this just adds more salt to the wound. They've dropped four contests in a row and lost seven of their last eight. Martin was replaced in the game by Chris Stewart. On the season, Martin is hitting .242 with a double, two home runs & 11 RBI.
Stay tuned to Sports Injury Alert for future updates on Martin's condition.
