Russell Martin to Miss 4-6 Weeks

How’s this for a hilarious timeline? (all courtesy of Dylan Hernandez’ Twitter). First, Dylan posts a tweet to a Steve Dilbeck┬ástory in the LA Times, leading with this:

Dodgers catcher Russell Martin says groin strain is ‘not anything major’

Not 25 minutes later, Dylan tweets this:

Torre: Martin out 4-6 wks. Will probably miss opening day.

And then adds…

Martin will be replaced on the big-league roster by AJ Ellis.

FANTASTIC. Clearly, this story is moving quickly. More, and repercussions, certainly coming later today.
