F-Mart leaves Buffalo game with injury

By Adam Rubin

Fernando Martinez, who has struggled with injuries throughout his professional career, left Thursday's Triple-A Buffalo game in the bottom of the fourth inning at Norfolk with right knee soreness.

Martinez, despite only being 22 years old, has an arthritic right knee that stopped him from playing winter ball. He also missed 10 games because of a right hamstring strain in April.
