Cody Anderson didn’t make it out of the first inning and had to throw in the cage to get to his required number of pitches for the day. Enough said.

Leonys Martin sits with hamstring tightness | Indians.com

From Mandy Bell:

When Leonys Martin didn’t return to the field in the ninth inning of Saturday’s 5-4 victory, there was a brief moment of concern that the Indians would have yet another injury on their hands, but manager Terry Francona seems confident that the center fielder will only be down for a few days.

Martin was dealing with some left hamstring tightness on Saturday, which is something that the coaching staff did not want to push in cold, damp conditions for one final inning. When Martin wasn’t in the lineup on Sunday, Francona said it would be a few days to make sure that they don’t aggravate the hamstring even more.

“It’ll be a day or two,” Francona said. “Some of it may depend on the weather. He showed up feeling really good. But again, he’s had these issues.”
