    Player Outlook

    A return to the AL East worked out well for Russell Martin, as he finished fourth among catchers in Fantasy value in his first season with the Blue Jays. Martin hit a career-high 23 home runs, including 13 at hitter-friendly Rogers Centre. According to the ESPN Home Run Tracker, half of Martin's 10 road homers had just enough distance to leave the park, so he may be due for a little less power in 2016. Even so, he is a solid No. 1 catcher for standard mixed league owners.

    • Blue Jays C Russell Martin hits two-run blast in win
      By RotoWire Staff

      Blue Jays catcher Russell Martin was 3 for 5 with a two-run home run in Toronto's victory over Tampa Bay on Friday night. Martin has provided some pop - he now has 23 long ones and 77 RBI - but his batting average (.241) has slumped in the second half. The Blue Jays have given him several days off over the past couple of weeks as they attempt to freshen him up heading into the playoffs, so it wouldn't be surprising to see him out of the lineup either Saturday or Sunday.
