Pirates giving Russell Martin time off to rest
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

The Pirates chose to give catcher Russell Martin a second straight day off Sunday against the Mets as a chance to give him another day to rest, per MLB.com.

"Catcher is a physically-taxing position," Pirates general manager Neal Huntington said. "With the pure off-day [on Monday], [Pirates manager Clint Hurdle] and I walked through it and thought it was a good opportunity to give him another day to recover and keep him as strong and sharp as we can for the rest of the season."

Russell Martin on roll in June
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Pirates catcher Russell Martin has just one home run since returning from a hamstring injury that landed him on the disabled list on May 23. But he has still been quite productive, especially in the past week.

Martin owns a five-game hitting streak and has 10 hits in his last 25 at-bats for a .400 mark. The mini-tear has catapulted his average from .239 to .274. He has 19 walks in 117 at-bats this season, contributing to a fine .402 on-base percentage.
