Russell Martin out for a couple of days due to a sauna injury

Technically the injury didn’t occur in the sauna. It occurred post-sauna. But the sauna is definitely the responsible party here.

That’s the word from Blue Jays manager John Gibbons, anyway, who says that catcher Russell Martin will need a couple of days off after injuring his knee. When he fell down. Because he got lightheaded after being in the sauna too long.

In other news, saunas are from Finland. They play a weird form of baseball in Finland called pesäpallo. I bet sauna injuries over there are as common as strained obliques over here.
