Pirates | Russell Martin takes BP
Pittsburgh Pirates C Russell Martin (hamstring) was able to take batting practice Wednesday, May 14. The next step would be running and catching, and manager Clint Hurdle said he is progressing well. The two have not discussed a minor-league rehab assignment, but it sounds like Hurdle wants Martin to go on a rehab stint and Martin isn't a big fan. "I'm a fan of (rehab assignments)," Hurdle said. "That doesn't mean that it always happens. We'll see where it takes itself. There are players that want to go. There's a lot of players that don't want to go. I think every player understands why you do it."
