Athletics first baseman Ike Davis underwent an MRI which showed a torn labrum in his left hip. He’ll undergo hip surgery, ending his 2015 season, CSN Bay Area’s Joe Stiglich reports.

Davis went on the 15-day disabled list on Tuesday. It’s believed he suffered the injury overcompensating for his previous quad injury. He ends his season batting .229/.301/.350 with three home runs and 20 RBI in 239 plate appearances.

Mark Canha should draw most of the remaining starts at first base through the end of the season.

Last night Cardinals closer Carlos Martinez picked up his 20th save in his team’s win over the Nats. This past weekend was far less fun for him.

Martinez rejoined the team yesterday, two days after he was hospitalized to deal with respiratory issues that were ultimately determined to be allergies and asthma, which have given him issues over the past couple of years. Martinez said that he was having trouble breathing during Saturday’s game against the Brewers at Busch Stadium and went to the hospital for tests. He stayed overnight and was released on Sunday.

Yesterday was back to business. He came into the game with two outs in the ninth and threw only two pitches. Strike one to Ryan Zimmerman before getting him to line out to center field and end the game. Sure beats the hospital.
