Martinez Update

Earlier today the Chronicle was reporting that Joe Martinez only had a concussion, but apparently there are some broken bones too:

Further tests revealed three hairline fractures in the skull of Giants rookie Joe Martinez, who was struck by a Mike Cameron liner in the ninth inning of Thursday’s 7-1 victory against Milwaukee. The fractures were not apparent last night, when Martinez was diagnosed with a concussion.

Jim Moorehead, the Giants’ senior director of media relations, said Martinez, 26, will remain hospitalized for three or four days to ensure he is OK.

Given how bad it looked when it happened, it’s a relief that his injuries, while certainly serious, are relatively minor.
