Victor Martinez Fractures Left Thumb

More injury troubles for the Red Sox. After taking two foul tips off his thumb, Victor Martinez had to leave the final game of the series against the Giants in the fourth inning. He was later diagnosed with a fractured left thumb.

So far, Victor and Terry Francona have said the injury might not require a trip to the disabled list depending on the swelling. With Dustin Pedroia, Jacoby Ellsbury, and Josh Beckett already sidelined by injuries, the team can ill afford to lose another big part of their team like Martinez.
