Update (11:28pm): It’s being called a bruised right thumb right now, and Martin is being taken for x-rays. Cross your fingers.
Original Post (9:57pm): Russell Martin left tonight’s game after taking a foul ball to his right (bare) hand. They bandaged him up, but Martin was unable to throw the ball back to the pitcher during the before-inning warm-ups, so he was lifted. Jorge Posada took over behind the plate, his first catching action of the season. We’ll update the post with more as it comes.
