Blue Jays C Russell Martin breaks through with multi-homer game
by Ted Leshinski | Staff Writer

Blue Jays catcher Russell Martin hit his first two homers of the season on Friday, snapping an 0 for 33 slump in the process.

"It's definitely encouraging but it's not really satisfying when you don't end up winning the game," Martin said.

The homers were just Martin's second and third hits of the season, boosting his average from .042 to .111.

Blue Jays' Gibbons pins Martin's struggles on changing teams
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Blue Jays catcher Russell Martin went 0 for 4 Tuesday against the Rays, extending his hitless streak to 21 at-bats. Martin compounded his problems with a costly throwing error in the eighth inning, which allowed Steven Souza to advance to third on a stolen-base attempt and eventually score the winning run.

"They bother me, probably, equally," Martin said of his slump and throwing error, per MLB.com. "I like to win baseball games ... any time you don't help the team win, it's not a good feeling. But it's over with. I'm not going to be down on myself. I'm trying my best out there."

Martin hasn't gotten a hit since Opening Day. He is batting .043 with eight strikeouts. While he is struggling, Blue Jays manager John Gibbons isn't surprised as Martin is getting acclimated to a new team.

"It's pretty common in this game ... if you get traded, or you're a free agent," Gibbons said. "These guys are human. Naturally, these guys want to get out to a good start. You're in a new place, things like that."

Josh Thole's demotion impacts Blue Jays roster, catcher rotation
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

The Blue Jays announced Tuesday catcher Josh Thole was optioned to Triple-A Buffalo. Thole's demotion means Russell Martin will be knuckleballer R.A. Dickey's personal catcher, per MLB.com.

Thole's demotion also means Dioner Navarro, who has asked for a trade, will be the backup catcher and get some at-bats at DH.
