Mike Napoli (knee) day-to-day, Luis Martinez up
Martinez was taking a flight from Austin to Seattle on Saturday night. Reliever Yoshinori Tateyama was optioned to Round Rock.
Napoli is listed as day-to-day after bruising the inside of his right knee in Friday night’s game against the Seattle Mariners.
The injury, which probably occurred when Napoli was sliding into home plate in the fifth inning, was first listed as a bruised quad muscle, but Napoli said the pain is in the inside part of his upper right knee.
