Blue Jays' Russell Martin: Perfectly healthy entering camp
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Although Martin was not approved to play in the World Baseball Classic due to a contract insurance issue, Blue Jays management has no concerns about the veteran's health, Shi Davidi of Sportsnet reports.

Martin underwent minor surgery on his left knee over the winter. The underwriters for the WBC didn't clear the backstop to play in this year's tournament, but Jays' general manager Ross Atkins insisted his organization had no concerns about Martin participating in the WBC. "Russ is an incredible athlete, incredible asset to Major League Baseball. He really wanted to play and I wanted that for him because he wanted that so badly. He's someone who takes such good care of himself, is an elite athlete, I'm sure he would have been fine," Atkins said. Management's reassuring words should end speculation that Martin suffered a setback with his knee.

Blue Jays' Russell Martin: No longer playing in WBC
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Martin will not play for Team Canada in the World Baseball Classic due to not being cleared for contract insurance, Jon Morosi of MLB Network reports.

Although the news may be disappointing for Martin, fantasy owners won't complain. The 33-year-old backstop appeared in 137 games last season, his most since 2009. Without a clear backup option in Toronto, the veteran is slated for another grueling season behind the dish. Avoiding the WBC means Martin will have an extra month to ease into 2017 and start the campaign with fresh legs.

Blue Jays' Russell Martin: In Thursday's lineup
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Martin (finger) is in the lineup Thursday against the Rangers, Shi Davidi of SportsNet reports.

Martin received stitches in his finger following Tuesday's game, but will be back in action for Game 1 of the ALDS. Martin, who finished the regular season with a .231/.335/.398 line, went 0-for-4 Monday night.

Blue Jays' Russell Martin: Produces in feisty loss to rival Yanks
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Martin went 0-for-3 with two walks, an RBI and scored a run in Monday's win over the Yankees.

Aside from racking up a few stats Monday, Martin was also an active participant in a pair of bench-clearing skirmishes. More important to fantasy owners, the struggling catcher notched his first RBI and first run since Sept. 20. Although Martin is hitting just .164 this month, he's been able to stay afloat due to good plate discipline. The veteran owns a decent .313 OBP thanks in part to the 15 walks he's drawn in September.

Blue Jays' Russell Martin: Out of lineup Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Martin is out of the lineup for Friday's game against the Angels.

With knuckleballer R.A. Dickey taking the hill Friday, Josh Thole will take over behind the dish in place of Martin. Although he's been able to hit for some power, Martin has struggled in September, hitting just .147 with a .680 OPS and 16 strikeouts. He figures to take back over behind the plate Saturday.
