    • Martin's knee continues to improve, and he's in the lineup Monday against the Padres, Ben Nicholson-Smith of Sportsnet reports. "All indications are that he's pretty good," manager John Gibbons said. Martin missed the previous three games after falling in a sauna, but it appears as though he's mostly moved past the issue. Gibbons intimated that Martin will again be in the lineup Tuesday before a potential maintenance day Wednesday.

    • Martin (knee) is out of the lineup Sunday against the Mariners. Martin is still tending to a knee injury stemming from a mishap Friday in the clubhouse sauna and will be unavailable for the third straight game. The Blue Jays don't appear worried yet that Martin is at risk of a DL stint, but if his absence extends further into the week, the team may need to add a catcher from the minor-league ranks.

    • Martin is out of the lineup Friday due to a knee injury and will likely need a couple days off, broadcaster Hazel Mae reports. It's been a season to forget for Martin thus far, and this injury will likely only add to his frustration. Manager John Gibbons said Martin stayed in the sauna too long Thursday, got lightheaded and then fell in the shower and hurt his knee. Josh Thole will take over behind the plate while Martin is on the mend.
