Fantasy Tip: Martin ($5,100, 10.2% of cap) is 0-for-his-last-12 plate appearances, but he was 8-for-17 before that. With a premium spot in the lineup, Martin is one of the top catcher options on FantasyScore.

Blue Jays | Russell Martin on hot streak

Wed, 06 May 2015 12:28:48 -0700

Fantasy Tip: Martin ($3,600, 7.2% of cap) is going well right now and should be a popular catching candidate for FantasyScore rosters. He has seen his average rise to .263 (21-for-80), and he has six homers and 17 RBI on the year. Martin is a great value play for FantasyScore users tonight against the struggling CC Sabathia.

Tue, 05 May 2015 14:18:47 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays C Russell Martin is hitting third in the batting order against New York Yankees SP Michael Pineda Tuesday, May 5, with OF Jose Bautista taking the day off.

Fantasy Tip: Martin ($3,600, 7.2% of cap) started slow but is hitting .311 (14-for-45) with three home runs and 10 RBI since April 19. A spot in the heart of Toronto's order makes him more attractive as a run producer at FantasyScore tonight.

Mon, 04 May 2015 13:35:16 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays C Russell Martin is not in the starting lineup Monday, May 4. C Josh Thole is catching and hitting sixth in the batting order against New York Yankees SP Chase Whitley.

Fantasy Tip: Thole ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) has become Dickey's personal catcher at this point, so this is no surprise. Consider Thole a low-end catching commodity at FantasyScore tonight.

Blue Jays | Russell Martin batting fourth

Fri, 01 May 2015 13:33:26 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays C Russell Martin is batting fourth and starting behind the plate against the Cleveland Indians Friday, May 1.

Fantasy Tip: Expect Martin's ($3,600, 7.2% of cap) tenure in the cleanup spot to be short lived. However, it significantly boosts his fantasy value, as he'll hit behind the team's three best hitters. Martin is an excellent FantasyScore option at a shallow position Friday.

Blue Jays | Russell Martin resting Wednesday

Wed, 29 Apr 2015 12:02:43 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays C Russell Martin is not in the starting lineup Wednesday, April 29. C Josh Thole is starting behind the plate and hitting eighth in the batting order against Boston Red Sox SP Rick Porcello.

Fantasy Tip: Thole ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) is likely to be R.A. Dickey's personal catcher for each of his starts, so it's not a huge surprise that Martin is sitting today. Thole isn't a strong FantasyScore option this evening, as he hit only .232 (23-for-99) with seven RBI against right-handers in 2014.
