Catcher Russell Martin’s simulated game Monday morning was cut short after he was hit by several pitches from Minor Leaguer Tim Corcoran.
“The third time was the charm,” said manager Joe Torre.
Martin — rehabbing quickly from a goin pull — was hit in the back and also knocked down, but it was the one that hit his wrist that prompted team officials to pull the plug.
“It got a little too simulated,” said Torre. “There was no damage. He was lucky on the one on the wrist. It was a little too uncomfortable to continue.” — Ken Gurnick
