Martin Promotion Tuesday

Russell Martin will catch Hiroki Kuroda Monday in a Minor League game, then on Tuesday will make his first Major League exhibition appearance since pulling a groin muscle, manager Joe Torre said.

Torre watched Martin catch seven innings Sunday and go 1-for-4 with a walk. Torre said Martin will probably play in Tucson where the Dodgers will face Colorado Tuesday.

“I felt good about what I saw,” said Torre. – Ken Gurnick

Martin needs to hurry back to the plate so he can launch some homers off of those weak, overrated giants pitchers!

Martin is a Great Player He deserves it after working so hard as a catcher and hitter! Go Russell

Go Dodgers!!

Well that good news, especially since Russell has been getting plenty of work lately and has held up fantastically.

Just got back to the car from watching Martin catch Kuroda in a minors game on one of the C-Back backfields. J-Mart might be a little shaky behind the plate but should be fine by opening day. He wants to start tomorrow’s road game down in Tucson but I’m not sure what Joe has decided on yet. Managed to get Torre and Mattingly’s autograph before we left – sweet. It also Russell he is back to chewing after trying to give it up last year…
