J.D. Martinez Is Not Expected To Miss Any Time Despite Sunday Back Spasms

With both Mookie Betts and Dustin Pedroia already on the 10-day disabled list, the the most feared words in Red Sox Nation last night were: "J.D. Martinez back spasms". The Boston DH/OF—who has been having a spectacular season—missed his final at-bat last night due to the problem. However, manager Alex Cora is pretty confident that Martinez will be back in the line-up on Tuesday night at home against his former Tiger club. Said the skipper, "He’ll be fine. I think the workload the past few days, day games at home last week, and flying all the way here, that’s probably why." Let's hope Cora is right.
