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.

Blue Jays' Russell Martin: Maintains hot stretch with homer, four RBI
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Martin went 1-for-3 with a three-run homer and a sacrifice fly against the Angels on Thursday.

He was a big part of what the Jays were able to do on offense, keeping up a hot stretch in which Russell has homered 11 times to go with a .280 average over 26 games. That's particularly outstanding in light of his awful .227 average with eight homers over his first 95 games this year. The 33-year-old backstop doesn't get many days off, making him a consistent and highly welcome lineup presence for fantasy owners down the stretch.

Blue Jays' Russell Martin: Belts 18th homer Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Martin hit his 18th homer of the season Tuesday, a two-run blast in a 6-2 loss against the Rays.

Martin hit fourth for the Blue Jays on Tuesday, a demonstration of the faith Toronto has in their veteran catcher's bat. The blast gave Martin his 66th and 67th RBI of the season, best among AL catchers except for the Rangers' Johnathan Lucroy, who spent half the year in the NL. Martin also leads AL catchers in strikeouts, however, whiffing 133 times in 399 at-bats.

Blue Jays' Russell Martin: Back in action Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Martin (knee) is back behind the dish Saturday against the Red Sox.

He was held out Friday due to a knee issue, but it was apparently minor. After a slow start to the season, Martin has really come on of late. He is slashing .273/.384/.547 with 10 home runs in 164 plate appearances in the second half.
