Russell Martin (back)
Dodgers skipper Dave Roberts said Russell Martin is improving, according to MLB.com’s Ken Gurnick. On Apr. 10, Martin was placed on the 10-day injured list with lower back inflammation.
Though he is eligible to come off of the IL on Apr. 21, but will likely not recover in time to rejoin the Dodgers in their series against the Brewers. It has not been announced when Martin will make his rehab assignment.
