After the game, Martinez was walking around in an orthopedic boot as a precaution until the boot became his new best friend when an x-ray revealed a fractured fourth metatarsal in his right foot. The injury will keep Martinez out of action, but an exact timetable hasn't been put together just yet.
Even though Martinez wasn't enjoying the best of springs defensively, he was hitting .323 and seemed destined to stick with the big league club. After all, the only players in camp who could truly play shortstop were Martinez, Jimmy Rollins and Freddy Galvis and Galvis figures to be starting at second base.
There had been speculation prior to Martinez' injury that the Phillies would explore the trade market and/or waiver wires for infield help. That speculation is now pretty much a definite.
