ATLANTA (AP) — The Atlanta Braves have placed right-hander Chris Martin on the 10-day injured list with right shoulder inflammation.
The move on Saturday, retroactive to Wednesday, came after Martin’s workout on Friday showed ongoing problems. He complained of numbness in his fingers and was forced to leave a relief appearance Sunday at Philadelphia.
“He just had some discomfort still,” Braves manager Brian Snitker said Saturday. “… It wasn’t going to work so we had to shut him down for a period.”
When asked if Martin’s shoulder is the problem, Snitker said, “When he went and tried to throw yesterday, all of a sudden it became a concern. We were hoping yesterday was going to go good.”
