Blue Jays' Russell Martin: Pushes average to season high with homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Martin went 1-for-3 with a three-run homer, his sixth of the season, in Wednesday's victory over the Diamondbacks.

Martin's home run came on a 3-2 fastball with two outs in the first against Arizona starter Robbie Ray, and was one of just four hits Toronto mustered off the D-backs' left-hander. Martin is hitting .280 this month, and after a horrendous start to his 2016 campaign, he's now lifted his average to a season-high .218.

Blue Jays' Russell Martin: Pops fifth homer in Sunday's win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Martin went 2-for-5 with two runs scored, three RBI and his fifth home run of the season.

He's got a tidy little four-game RBI streak going, and with the Blue Jays' offense starting to fire on all cylinders around him, Martin seems poised to shake off his early-season slump for good. If he's been cut loose in a shallow league and you need catching help, he's worth a look.

Blue Jays' Russell Martin: Gets over Mendoza Line in Friday victory
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Martin went 1-for-1 with a game-tying RBI single and two walks in Friday's 4-3 extra-inning victory over the Orioles.

The veteran backstop finally clawed his way over the Mendoza Line and his one hit served to forge a 3-3 tie in the sixth inning when it plated Justin Smoak. Martin is still hitting 53 points below his career .255 average, but has now raised his average 59 points since May 1. He's also hit safely in five of his last six contests and is showing a much better eye at the plate in June. Martin has already drawn six walks over his first nine games of the month, equaling the amount of free passes he generated in all of May.

Blue Jays' Russell Martin: Hits fourth homer in Sunday's win
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Martin went 1-for-3 with a walk and a solo shot, his fourth home run of the season, in Sunday's win over the Red Sox.

After going without a homer during the first seven weeks of the season, Martin now has four blasts in his last 10 games. He's still hitting just .197, but that represents his highest batting average so far in 2016 as he looks to climb out of his early hole.

Blue Jays' Russell Martin: Out of lineup Friday
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Martin is not in the lineup for Friday's game against the Red Sox.

In his place, the Blue Jays will start Josh Thole behind the plate. Martin will get a well-earned day off since he has caught seven of the last eight games. The 33-year-old catcher is currently struggling at the dish, batting just .192 with three home runs and 14 RBI.
