Blue Jays' Jarrod Saltalamacchia: Set to be team's reserve catcher
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Saltalamacchia will enter camp as the favorite to back up starting catcher Russell Martin, Keegan Matheson of MLB.com reports.

This news contradicts another story from MLB.com that suggests A.J. Jimenez will be the team's backup. With the latter out of options, the Jays risk losing the 26-year-old Jimenez to waivers if they opt for Saltalamacchia on Opening Day. Saltalamacchia will be entering his 10th big league season and has a career .234/.309/.413 slash line. A savvy veteran he may be, but a fantasy asset he's not. Even if Saltalamacchia beats out Jimenez this spring, he won't be worth a roster spot in most formats if Martin remains healthy.

Blue Jays' Jarrod Saltalamacchia: Agrees to minor league deal with Blue Jays
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Saltalamacchia agreed to a minor league contract with the Blue Jays on Tuesday, pending a physical, Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports reports.

Saltalamacchia was hot out of the gates with Detroit last season, smacking six homers in his first 12 games, but he finished with a .171 average and 69 wRC+ in 292 plate appearances. He'll get a chance to compete for the backup role behind Russell Martin, and while he has enough power to reach double-digits in home runs even in a reserve role, the 31-year-old sells out for that power (30.5 percent strikeout rate for career) and that makes him a huge liability in the batting average category.

Jarrod Saltalamacchia: Becomes free agent Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Saltalamacchia became a free agent Monday after the Tigers did not extend him a qualifying offer, Anthony Fenech of the Detroit Free Press reports.

Saltalamacchia had a couple spurts of success with Detroit, but overall his numbers were among the worst of his career. He'll likely look to sign a minor league contract somewhere if he can't garner a backup catching job.

Tigers' Jarrod Saltalamacchia: Game continues to slide
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Saltalamacchia went 0-for-4 with two strikeouts Saturday.

Since the start of August, Salty has gone 6-for-54 (.111) with two extra base hits and nine walks. His batting average has dropped well below Mendoza at .179 and his OPS sits at .675. Platoon-mate James McCann has just a .646 OPS on the season, but while Saltalamacchia's game is on the slide, McCann's is on the rise (16-for-50 since mid-August). Salty is a risk in any fantasy lineup at this point.

Tigers' Jarrod Saltalamacchia: Hits 11th homer of season in Tuesday's loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Saltalamacchia went 1-for-2 with a walk and a solo shot in Tuesday's 6-1 loss to the Royals.

Saltalamacchia started at first base in place of the injured Miguel Cabrera in part because manager Brad Ausmus hoped to take advantage of his offensive punch. According to Statcast, Saltalamacchia's drive to the center-field shrubs traveled an estimated 438 feet from the plate. It marked Saltalamacchia's 34th RBI of the season on his 37th hit, 11 of which have been home runs. Unfortunately for 31-year-old, he's rarely been able to capitalize on that power as Salty is hitting just .200 (37-for-185) on the year.
