Alex Cora was posted in the starting lineup at short stop for last night's game in Los Angeles.
Just when we began to worry about why Jose Reyes was out for the fifth day in a row, news came out that Cora was scratched and placed on the 15 day disabled list.
It was revealed that Cora has a torn ligament in his right thumb.
As expected Ramon Martinez was recalled and made it to the park about 15 minutes before the game started.
I hope he slept on the plane, because Martinez is the starting shortstop.
