LOS ANGELES -- Los Angeles Dodgers catcher Russell Martin will likely miss the remainder of the regular season with a torn labrum in his right hip.

Martin was placed on the 15-day disabled list Wednesday for the first time in his career after the tear showed up in an MRI.

The injury, which took place in the second inning of Tuesday's 2-1 win over the Padres, will force Martin to be on crutches for three weeks to avoid weight bearing on the hip joint.

A CT scan is scheduled for Thursday and the test results will be sent to three hip specialists for opinions about a course of treatment. Surgery is a possible solution.

In 97 games this season, the Canadian native was batting .248 with five homers and 26 RBI.
