Cleveland Indians OF Leonys Martin has been diagnosed with a bacterial infection in his blood (bacteremia). This resulted in damage to the organs and functionality. They will culture the bacteria and see which antibiotics it’s susceptible to and will treat it with intravenous antibiotics. Return to play is really difficult to assess since we have no idea what type of “organ injury” he has.

My name is Eric Friedman and I'm originally from New York. I am a big New York sports fan including the Giants, Mets, Knicks, and Rangers. I played multiple sports in high school including baseball, basketball, and tennis. I went down south after high school and attended Wake Forest University, where I majored in health and exercise science and minored in Biology. I stayed for medical school and graduated from Wake Forest School of Medicine. Now, I am living in Baltimore where I work as an emergency medicine resident at the University of Maryland and Shock Trauma. I plan to go to sports medicine fellowship afterwards due to my love of sports and helping athletes get healthy and back on the field. I have worked at multiple sports medicine clinics and have published research about achilles tendon tears. I am on twitter @sportsinjuryMD
