Likely heading to DL per Wedge


RWorld:

Although the Indians called him day-to-day, manager Eric Wedge said after Friday's game that Victor Martinez would likely go on the DL with a strained left quad.

Kelly Shoppach will be the Indians' primary catcher while Martinez is out, so he'll be worth picking up in AL-only leagues. Just don't expect him to bat cleanup. Casey Blake will likely move into that spot. Mike Rose will likely be called up to serve as the backup catcher.

Sportsline wrote:The Indians didn't lose their opener. They probably lost Victor Martinez for a while, though. Cleveland's catcher strained his left quadriceps while running to first base in the third inning of the Indians' frosty home opener Friday against the Seattle Mariners. The game was eventually postponed after 173 minutes in delays. Afterward, Indians manager Eric Wedge called Martinez's injury "a potential DL (disabled list) situation." Martinez hit a grounder to third baseman Adrian Beltre, who misplayed the bouncer for an error. Martinez didn't see Beltre's bobble as he hustled down to first, but he came up limping just as he approached the bag. Martinez spent several minutes kneeling in the outfield grass before walking gingerly off the field. He was replaced by pinch-runner Kelly Shoppach, who took over behind the plate in the top of the fourth.

The Indians said Martinez was day to day, but the injury appeared to be one that could keep him out for at least a few games. Now, it appears he'll go on the DL, joining starter Cliff Lee and reliever Matt Miller.


Buzzkill. Good luck David Ross (my backup) :*)

Nothing new, but this from KFFL via Yahoo:
Apr 6 Updating a previous item, WKYC-TV, the NBC station in Cleveland, is reporting Cleveland Indians C Victor Martinez (quad) suffered an injury to his left quadriceps and he is considered day-to-day.


P.S. Curse you, noren0! :~(

I'd start Bard for tomorrow's games if I were you. He's def not playing a doubleheader in his condition.

To clarify, Sunday's DH is postponed again:

CLEVELAND, OH --- The Cleveland Indians announced today's (April 8, 2007) traditional doubleheader between the Indians and Seattle Mariners has been postponed due to inclement weather and has been rescheduled as a traditional doubleheader tomorrow, Monday, April 9, beginning at 4:05PM. Gates will open at 3:00PM. The second game will begin approximately 20 minutes after the conclusion of the first game.


Maybe the Indians won't play another game until VMart is fully healed. ;-D

The Indians know V-Mart will miss time this week, but they are confident he will be able to return in 15 days from the retroactive injury. He might go on the DL on Monday, but nothing is imminent.


Looks like it may snow tonight into tomorrow morning, with a game-time temperature of 36 degrees (30 with wind chill).

Could be postponed again.
