Russell Martin Placed On DL

Another day, another injury for the Toronto Blue Jays. On Monday catcher Russell Martin was placed on the 10-day disabled list due to a nerve issue in his left shoulder. “I’m having a hard time lifting my arm and catching certain pitches,” he said. “It’s unlike anything I’ve ever had in my career.” The 34-year-old was dealing with some troubles with his shoulders since Spring training but it got worse after a collision at home place in late April. “It’s like I physically have a hard time doing certain things that I’ve never had trouble doing before,” Martin said.

As of May 8th the Jays have eight players on the disabled list the most notable being: Martin, Troy Tulowitzki, Josh Donaldson, J.A. Happ, Aaron Sanchez and Dalton Pompey,

The Blue Jays recalled catcher Mike Ohlman from triple-A Buffalo before Monday night’s game against the Cleveland Indians.
