Indians' Leonys Martin battling serious infection

A general view of the Cleveland indians field during the world series

Cleveland Indians outfielder Leonys Martin was in stable condition Monday as he recovers from a life-threatening bacterial infection, a team executive said. Per MLB.com's Jordan Bastian, Antonetti explained that Martin's infection affected multiple organs. Those toxins did damage to his internal organs and the functioning of those organs was compromised, and it was severe.

Martin has been hospitalized at Cleveland Clinic for about a week after the infection attacked his organs, general manager Chris Antonetti told reporters. He's in a good path right now and we're hopeful he'll make a full recovery.

Leonys Martin was traded to Cleveland from Detroit on July 31.

"Leonys is now in stable condition", Antonetti said, via Cleveland.com's Paul Hoynes.

Antonetti stressed that Martin's infection is not communicable and that doctors haven't defined the specific type of bacteria or how it entered Martin's system.

And during those brief periods they were without the ball, they pressured West Ham relentlessly until they got it back. James Milner collected Robertson's deep cross and cut it back to the unmarked Mane who turned the ball home.

Martin was placed on the 10-day disabled list last week after falling ill.

"We'll continue to spend the month of August looking for opportunities to improve our team", Antonetti said last week. It's going to take him some time, but we're in a much better spot today than we were 24 to 36 hours ago'. "What impact Martin's condition or illness has on that, we're not yet sure".

He was able to get up and sit in a chair for a few hours yesterday. On Friday, Francona said, "If you believe in saying prayers and things like that, keep him in your thoughts".

Antonetti offered that Martin still faces a long recovery period and may not play again this season. He's at the Clinic and he's getting good care'.

Martin, 30, played in 78 games this season with the Tigers, hitting.251 (76x303) with 45 runs scored, 15 doubles, three triples, nine home runs and 29 RBI. "We haven't really even thought about baseball yet", he said.
