While playing center field Tuesday for Triple-A Norfolk, Martin sustained the wrist injury when he was flagging down a fly ball at the outfield wall.

Martin, who was moved to the 7-day IL on Wednesday, had been hitting .170 with four stolen bases in 56 plate appearances through his first 13 games with Norfolk.
