Martin no longer using crutches

|
LOS ANGELES -- Dodgers catcher Russell Martin was evaluated on Friday and told that he no longer needed crutches as the fracture in his right hip heals. Martin said he has already begun using an exercise bike.

Martin, lost for the season in early August, used crutches for six weeks. The 27-year-old, who hit .248 with five home runs and 26 RBIs before his injury, is eligible for arbitration this offseason.
