Upbeat Reports on Martin, Kuo, Ausmus

The Dodgers received upbeat medical reports on catchers Russell Martin and Brad Ausmus and reliever Hong-Chih Kuo.

Martin, healing faster than expected from a pulled groin, will start in a Minor League game Thursday and predicts he’ll be in the Opening Day lineup.

Kuo, shut down for a few days with recurring elbow soreness, played catch on flat ground, although it remains uncertain whether he will be ready for Opening Day. He’s pitched in only two games this spring.

Ausmust, out with a bad lower back, resumed baseball activities and said he should be in a game in the next few days. — Ken Gurnick
