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: 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.

Blue Jays' Russell Martin: Losing playing time
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Martin is on the bench for the fifth time in the last nine games Tuesday against the Red Sox.

Luke Maile has been preferred to Martin six of the last nine games behind the plate. (Martin has also started once at third base.) With the Blue Jays well out of the playoff picture, it makes sense that the team wouldn't feel the need to give the 35-year-old regular at-bats, preferring to give playing time to younger players. Martin is still under contract for $20 million in 2019, however, so the team won't be moving on from him entirely.

Blue Jays' Russell Martin: Resting up Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Martin is out of the lineup Sunday against the Mariners.

Martin is just receiving a routine maintenance day, so Luke Maile will check in behind the plate in the veteran's stead. With three home runs and nine hits total over his last seven games, Martin has been wielding a hot bat of late.

Blue Jays' Russell Martin: Gets breather Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Martin is out of Thursday's starting nine against the Mariners, Hazel Mae of Sportsnet reports.

Martin will get his second day off in three games after going 2-for-3 with a homer and two RBI against Oakland on Wednesday. Luke Maile is slated to handle the catching duties and bat eighth in his stead.
