Michael Martinez Injury: Phillies Infielder Breaks Bone In Foot

The Philadelphia Phillies' infield woes continue as utility infielder Michael Martinez has broken a bone in his foot (via Philly.com).

Martinez was hit by a pitch on Tuesday in the seventh inning of Philadelphia's 4-1 win over the Baltimore Orioles. Martinez stayed in the game and scored a run. However, following the game, the team did an x-ray on Martinez' foot and found that he had broken the fourth metatarsal of his right foot. Martinez is in a walking boot. The Phillies did not give a timetable for his return.

With the reassignment of Kevin Frandsen, the Phillies could be left with just Jimmy Rollins and Freddy Galvis on the roster to play the shortstop position.

Martinez was 10-31 in Spring Training (.323). For his MLB career, Martinez has hit .262 with 3 home runs and 14 RBI in 107 at-bats.
