Martin Out 4-6 Weeks

Russell Martin will miss 4-6 weeks, and barring some miraculous healing, the beginning of the regular season, with a groin pull, originally reported to be a strained abdomen.

A.J. Ellis and Brad Ausmus will split Spring duties, with Ellis catching most of the time. Hopefully This Is Ellis's Town for the bulk of the time Martin misses in the regular season. Because honestly, Ausmus, at 40, is barely a backup at this point, and certainly not a starter.

Ellis has more upside. I understand the argument for going with the floor and Ausmus, but that's not how I would roll if the decision were mine to make.
