      By RotoWire Staff

      Martin is not in the lineup Tuesday against the Braves, Shi Davidi of Sportsnet.ca reports. Martin will head to the bench for a maintenance day with the Blue Jays slated to play a matinee contest Wednesday. Luke Maile will start behind the dish and hit eighth in his stead.

    • Blue Jays' Russell Martin: On bench Saturday
      By RotoWire Staff

      Martin is not in the lineup Saturday against the Nationals. Martin has just three hits in his last 23 at-bats and is hitting a disappointing .168/.314/.310 on the season. Luke Maile will get the start behind the plate Saturday.

    • Martin is not in the lineup for Tuesday's game against the Rays, Arden Zwelling of Sportsnet.ca reports. As is often the case, Martin will get the night off ahead of an afternoon game. Luke Maile will start behind the dish and hit eighth in his stead.

    • Martin will get the day off Saturday against the Orioles. After getting Thursday to rest, Martin went 2-for-3 with a two-run homer and a walk in the second game of Toronto's weekend series with Baltimore. Luke Maile is slated to take over the catching duties and bat seventh in his stead.

    • Martin went 2-for-3 with a walk, a home run and two RBI in Friday's 5-1 win over the Orioles. The homer was his sixth of the year and first in almost a month, as Martin last went yard May 10. Friday's performance was also his first multi-hit game since that date, as the veteran catcher had been mired in a .152 (7-for-46) slump. The Jays' willingness to experiment with Martin as a utility player may have landed him additional position eligibility in many leagues -- he's seen action in five games at third base, two at shortstop and one in left field this season -- but until he starts producing at the plate, that flexibility isn't going to be of use to most fantasy GMs.
