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
