    • Dodgers' Russell Martin: Hits second homer
      By RotoWire Staff

      Martin went 1-for-3 with a solo home run and a walk in an 8-3 win for the Dodgers over the Reds on Sunday. The veteran backstop homered for the first time since April 5, checking in with a solo blast off Wandy Peralta in the eight inning for his second of the year. Martin only has 46 at-bats on the season, but he's performed well in his opportunities, as he's slashing .261/.397/.435.

Martin will have to clear one final hurdle before receiving the green light to return. The veteran backstop has been on the shelf since April 10 due to a lower-back strain but could be activated as soon as Saturday, assuming all goes well during his sim game.

      Martin (back) will not go on a rehab start, Bill Plunkett of The Orange County Register reports. Martin, who participated in batting practice and caught a bullpen session Saturday, won't have to go to the minors first before coming back from his back injury.
