Blue Jays | Russell Martin heating up

Sun, 30 Aug 2015 17:14:28 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays C Russell Martin went 2-for-3 with a home run, two RBI and three runs scored in a 9-2 win over the Detroit Tigers Sunday, Aug. 30.

Fantasy Tip: Martin ($4,200, 8.4% of cap) has homered in back-to-back games, and after going through a slump while dealing with a hamstring injury, it appears he is back on track. Thanks to Toronto's powerful lineup, Martin has as much upside as any catcher available at FantasyScore when he is swinging a hot bat.

Blue Jays | Russell Martin ends homer drought

Sat, 29 Aug 2015 18:24:22 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays C Russell Martin went 1-for-4 with a home run, two RBI and a walk in a 15-1 win against the Detroit Tigers Saturday, Aug. 29.

Fantasy Tip: It was the first home run for Martin ($4,200, 8.4% of cap) since July 30, and he had managed just three RBI during the drought. The homer could be a sign that his hamstring injury is behind him, but you may want to wait until he has a few more good games before using him at FantasyScore.

Blue Jays | Russell Martin sitting against Tigers

Fri, 28 Aug 2015 12:38:13 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays C Russell Martin (hamstring) is not in the starting lineup Friday, Aug. 28. C Josh Thole is starting behind the plate and batting ninth against Detroit Tigers SP Matt Boyd Friday.

Fantasy Tip: Russell ($4,200, 8.4% of cap) is playing through a nagging hamstring injury, and he has stopped catching R.A. Dickey of late. Seasonal owners wouldn't be out of the question to consider an upgrade, as Martin is batting .111 with just three runs, three RBI and no extra-base hits in August. Thole ($1,700, 3.4% of cap) has a .216/.292/.266 slash line through 122 games with the Blue Jays over the past three seasons, and he is nothing but a desperation flier at FantasyScore Friday.

Toronto Blue Jays C Russell Martin is out of the lineup Thursday, Aug. 27, with C Dioner Navarro hitting fifth.

Toronto Blue Jays C Russell Martin is out of the lineup Saturday, Aug. 22, with C Dioner Navarro hitting sixth.

Fantasy Tip: Navarro ($3,100, 6.2% of cap) is facing lefty Andrew Heaney tonight, but he's not enough of an offensive threat to use on FantasyScore.

Blue Jays | Russell Martin hampered by hamstring issues

Sat, 22 Aug 2015 04:45:51 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays C Russell Martin (hamstring) is having issues with his left hamstring, but he still played Friday, Aug. 21, in a 9-2 win over the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim. Martin collected a hit and an RBI.

Fantasy Tip: Martin ($4,800, 9.6% of cap) may be forced into a DH role if this keeps up, or worse yet he may have to go to the bench. Keep an eye on whether or not he plays or whether the injury starts to affect his bat.

Blue Jays | Russell Martin playing with soreness

Wed, 19 Aug 2015 20:39:08 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays C Russell Martin (leg) said Wednesday, Aug. 19, that he has been playing with soreness in his left leg. He said he is fine catching, the issue is when he is running. Russell said he has played with a similar issue before.

Fantasy Tip: Martin ($4,800, 9.6% of cap) appears to be willing to play through the issue, but just double-check those FantasyScore lineups to make sure he is in the starting nine each day.

Blue Jays | Russell Martin on the bench

Sat, 15 Aug 2015 07:52:39 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays C Russell Martin is not in the starting lineup against New York Yankees SP Masahiro Tanaka Saturday, Aug. 15. C Dioner Navarro will start at catcher and is batting sixth in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Martin ($4,800, 9.6% of cap) should be able to return in the next game or two. Navarro ($2,800, 5.6% of cap) has recorded at least one hit in four of his last five games, but owners on FantasyScore should be able to find better options.

Blue Jays | Russell Martin with day off

Thu, 13 Aug 2015 09:19:22 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays C Russell Martin is out of the lineup Thursday, Aug. 13, with C Dioner Navarro hitting fifth.

Fantasy Tip: Navarro ($2,800, 5.6% of cap) has a so-so matchup against Jesse Chavez, but he really isn't much of an offensive weapon to use on FantasyScore.
