Victor Martinez Breaks Left Thumb

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) – Red Sox catcher Victor Martinez has a

broken left thumb, the latest injury for banged-up Boston.

Martinez left Sunday's 5-1 win at San Francisco and was replaced

by Jason Varitek.

The Red Sox did not say whether Martinez will go on the disabled

list. He will be re-evaluated on Monday's off-day.

Boston is already missing star second baseman Dustin Pedroia,

who recently broke his left foot.
