Blue Jays | Russell Martin not in Friday lineup

Fri, 03 Jul 2015 12:55:02 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays C Russell Martin is not in the starting lineup Friday, July 3, against the Detroit Tigers. C Dioner Navarro is catching instead.

Fantasy Tip: Martin ($5,100, 10.2% of cap) is getting a night off with some other lineup switches taking place, including Edwin Encarnacion at designated hitter. Go ahead and use Navarro ($2,500, 5.0% of cap) in FantasyScore.

Blue Jays | Russell Martin not in lineup Tuesday

Tue, 30 Jun 2015 12:46:34 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays C Russell Martin is not in the starting lineup Tuesday, June 30, against the Boston Red Sox. C Dioner Navarro is batting seventh. In addition, 3B Josh Donaldson is at designated hitter and 3B Danny Valencia is at third base.

Fantasy Tip: The lineup switches are in part because Martin ($5,100, 10.2% of cap) gets a night off after playing the entire week at catcher. Navarro ($2,500, 5.0% of cap) is 3-for-15 in the last seven days and isn't really worth picking up at the moment. Valencia ($2,600, 5.2% of cap) has lost a significant chunk of playing time and has little fantasy value.

Blue Jays | Russell Martin to be DH

Sat, 27 Jun 2015 08:11:16 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays C Russell Martin will serve as the designated hitter against Texas Rangers SP Yovani Gallardo Saturday, June 27. C Dioner Navarro will start at catcher and is batting fifth in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Martin ($5,200, 10.4% of cap) is receiving a day off from catching but will try to help at the plate. Martin is hitting a solid .266 with four home runs and 13 RBI this month and could be a solid option on FantasyScore. Navarro ($2,500, 5.0% of cap) has six hits and two home runs in his last three games and could be a cheaper option for owners to consider.

Blue Jays | Russell Martin out vs. Rays

Mon, 22 Jun 2015 13:03:07 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays C Russell Martin is not in the starting lineup Monday, June 22. C Dioner Navarro is starting behind the plate and batting fourth against Tampa Bay Rays SP Matt Andriese Monday.

Fantasy Tip: Martin ($5,200, 10.4% of cap) ranks among the top catchers in fantasy to date, and he currently sports 44 runs, 10 home runs, 35 RBI with a .282/.365/.507 slash line. Make sure to replace him where you can in year-long lineups Monday and avoid him at FantasyScore. Navarro ($2,500, 5.0% of cap) is worth a low-priced flier with few catching options in daily contests Monday.

Blue Jays | Russell Martin out of the lineup

Fri, 19 Jun 2015 13:15:08 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays C Russell Martin is not in the starting lineup against Baltimore Orioles SP Mike Wright Friday, June 19. C Dioner Navarro will be the starting catcher and is batting seventh in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Martin ($5,200, 10.4% of cap) probably is sitting out only one day and should return soon. Navarro ($2,500, 5.0% of cap) has gone hitless in his last four games, and owners should be able to find better options on FantasyScore.

Blue Jays | Russell Martin out vs. Mets

Mon, 15 Jun 2015 13:12:57 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays C Russell Martin is not in the starting lineup Monday, June 15. C Dioner Navarro is batting sixth against New York Mets SP Noah Syndergaard Monday.

Fantasy Tip: Russell ($5,100, 10.2% of cap) is riding a torrid 34-game run with 26 runs, seven home runs, 21 RBI and a .336/.381/.594 slash line. Expect him to return to the lineup Tuesday, June 16, as he is likely just receiving a rest day. Navarro ($2,500, 5.0% of cap) is an upside FantasyScore play Monday, as the Blue Jays are rolling. Although, Navarro himself hasn't been overly impressive since returning from injury -- 3-for-15 without a RBI.

Blue Jays | Russell Martin hits game-winning homer

Sat, 13 Jun 2015 14:52:46 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays C Russell Martin hit the go-ahead home run in the top of the 11th inning Saturday, June 13, against the Boston Red Sox.

Fantasy Tip: Martin ($5,100, 10.2% of cap) finished 2-for-5 with two runs scored, one RBI and his 10th home run of the season. Martin is 8-for-23 during a five-game hitting streak, with eight runs driven in. Martin's worth his price at the otherwise sparse catcher position.

Blue Jays | No Russell Martin Tuesday

Tue, 09 Jun 2015 14:41:52 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays C Russell Martin is not in the starting lineup Tuesday, June 9. C Dioner Navarro is behind the plate and is hitting seventh against Miami Marlins SP Dan Haren.

Fantasy Tip: Navarro ($2,500, 5.0% of cap) flies under the radar as a FantasyScore catcher, especially since it hasn't been long since he was activated from the DL. However, he's hit better in his career from the right side of the plate as a switch hitter. Still, Navarro has value as a sleeper play against Haren in a hitter-friendly park.

Blue Jays | Russell Martin not starting

Sat, 06 Jun 2015 08:02:06 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays C Russell Martin is not in the starting lineup Saturday, June 6. C Dioner Navarro will be the starting catcher and is batting seventh in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Martin ($5,100, 10.2% of cap) should return to the lineup in the next game or two. Navarro ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) recently returned from injury and went 1-for-4 in his first game. Owners on FantasyScore may want to see Navarro in a few more games before using him in their lineups.

Blue Jays | Russell Martin not starting Wednesday

Wed, 03 Jun 2015 13:19:47 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays C Russell Martin is out of the starting lineup Wednesday, June 3, against the Washington Nationals. C Dioner Navarro is batting fifth.

Fantasy Tip: Martin ($5,100, 10.2% of cap) is one of the regulars who is likely not playing because of Toronto's Tuesday doubleheader. Navarro ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) is hitting .267 (4-for-15) from the fifth spot, but he just came off the disabled list from a hamstring injury so be a bit cautious.
