According to Fox Sports' Bruce Feldman, Stanford MLB Blake Martinez is doubtful for the Pac-12 Championship game vs USC tonight.

Martinez supposedly injured his ankle during practice this week and the Stanford staff is not optimistic about his chances to play today.

Martinez leads the Cardinal with 121 tackles this season, and had 14 tackles against USC in the first meeting.

UPDATE: ESPN's Chantel Jennings says that Martinez's ankle is hurt, but he will play tonight:
