Dodgers' Russell Martin: Heads west
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Martin has been traded from the Blue Jays to the Dodgers, Jeff Passan of ESPN.com reports.

The Blue Jays will be covering a large portion ($16.4 million) of the remaining $20 million on Martin's salary, and even so, the Dodgers probably aren't sending anything significant back in the deal. Martin was worth just 0.6 fWAR in 352 plate appearances last year -- the worst fWAR season of his 13-year career. Entering his age-36 season, he is clearly slowing down at the plate (.194/.338/.325 last year), but is still a capable defender. Barring another trade, Martin and Austin Barnes should evenly split the catching duties in 2019.

Blue Jays' Russell Martin: Could see some reps at third
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

General manager Ross Atkins said Martin could play some third base in 2019, Hazel Mae of Sportsnet reports. "If he's playing (some) third base, that would be ok," Atkins said.

Martin is projected to open the season as Toronto's backup behind the dish, but his ability to play third base could afford him a few extra starts in 2019. That said, Martin hasn't played more than 91 games in either of the past two seasons, and he likely won't surpass that number entering his age-36 season for the rebuilding Blue Jays. He hit .194/.338/.325 with 10 homers in 90 games last season.

Blue Jays' Russell Martin: Placed on paternity list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Martin was placed on the paternity list Tuesday, Hazel Mae of Sportsnet reports.

Martin is unlikely to lose much playing time as a result of the move, as he's played just twice in September. The Blue Jays are preferring to give at-bats to younger players, a trend which will continue even after Martin's return.

Blue Jays' Russell Martin: Playing time dwindling
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Manager John Gibbons said Martin will not play "all that much down the stretch" as the club integrates younger players into the lineup during the final month of the 2018 season, Ben Nicholson-Smith of Sportsnet.ca reports.

This shouldn't come as a major surprise considering Martin has only played in two games dating back to Aug. 31. Danny Jansen will continue to receive a majority of the starts behind the plate while Reese McGuire will likely see an expanded role. In addition, the plethora of young infielders will take precedent instead of Martin getting the occasional start at third base. Looking ahead, Martin remains under contract for the 2019 campaign, but is staring at a backup role behind Jansen barring any changes.

Blue Jays' Russell Martin: Ducks out of lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Martin is out of the lineup Sunday against the Marlins.

Martin will head to the bench for the third time in five games and no longer looks to be in line for regular starts at catcher or third base, where Danny Jansen and Aledmys Diaz, respectively, have emerged as the top options at those positions. Since Martin is still under contract through 2019, he likely won't be phased out entirely, but expect the Blue Jays to nonetheless prioritize at-bats for their younger players over the final few weeks of the campaign.
