Martinez breaks bone in right foot
SARASOTA, Fla. -- The Phillies lost another infielder Tuesday.

Infielder Michael Martinez fractured the fourth metatarsal in his right foot when Orioles reliever Jim Johnson hit him with a pitch in the seventh inning at Ed Smith Stadium. Martinez remained in the game and scored, but he was replaced defensively in the bottom of the inning.

He was in a walking boot after the game.

There is no timetable for his return, but he is expected to open the season on the disabled list. With injuries to Ryan Howard, Chase Utley and Martinez, the healthy remaining infielders in camp include Jimmy Rollins, Placido Polanco, Freddy Galvis, Ty Wigginton, Jim Thome, Pete Orr and Hector Luna.
