JD Martinez could miss Game 3 with ankle injury

JD Martinez

The Boston Red Sox could be without a key member of their lineup for Game 3 of the World Series.

During Game 1 on Tuesday, Martinez twisted his ankle while running the bases after hitting an RBI double. Martinez may have been fine to play if the DH were available, but with the series shifting to Los Angeles, Martinez’s ankle may not allow him to play the outfield on Friday.

“We’ll see,” Red Sox manager Alex Cora told regarding Martinez’s status. “Actually, he felt better today walking around. He got treatment on the way here. He’ll get treatment Friday morning. In the afternoon, we’ll make a decision.”

In 11 games this postseason, Martinez is batting .333/.429/.538 with two home runs and 13 RBI. If his ankle doesn’t respond well to treatment, Cora would be missing a substantial bat for a game that could be put the Red Sox on the brink of another championship.
