Astros | Fernando Martinez could start on DL
Houston Astros OF Fernando Martinez (oblique) was scratched from the lineup Thursday, March 28, and he could start the season on the disabled list. His back tightened up earlier in camp, and he'll head to Houston to be looked at by a doctor Friday, March 29. Martinez said he thinks it's his left oblique muscle.
Fantasy Tip: It would be a surprise if Martinez didn't begin on the DL with this injury. If it is indeed an oblique injury, they are usually tricky and require plenty of rest and recovery.
