Blue Jays | No Russell Martin vs. Padres

Wed, 27 Jul 2016 07:49:33 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays C Russell Martin is not in the starting lineup Wednesday, July 27. C Josh Thole is starting behind the plate and batting ninth against San Diego Padres SP Luis Perdomo Wednesday.

Fantasy Tip: Martin remains a viable starting backstop in all fantasy leagues, but you'll want to sub him out where you can Wednesday. Martin sits with 32 runs, seven home runs and 36 RBI for the campaign. Thole owns a .523 OPS over the past four seasons with Toronto, and he's completely off the fantasy radar.

Blue Jays | Russell Martin back in the lineup

Mon, 25 Jul 2016 12:46:45 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays C Russell Martin (knee) is starting behind the plate and batting sixth against San Diego Padres SP Colin Rea Monday, July 25.

Fantasy Tip: Martin missed three games with the knee injury, but he's safe to return to your lineups given his strong play dating back to the beginning of June (.267/.383/.422 slash line with 20 runs and 22 RBI over 35 games). Martin is a viable starter in the majority of seasonal settings.

Blue Jays | Russell Martin feeling better

Sat, 23 Jul 2016 08:36:08 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays C Russell Martin (knee) is feeling better but is still considered day-to-day at this point, according to manager John Gibbons.

Fantasy Tip: It appears that Russell should be able to return in a few days, but owners should continue to check the lineups to see when he will return. He is hitting .228 with seven home runs and 36 RBI this season and is a decent starting candidate in most leagues.

Blue Jays | Russell Martin out a few days

Fri, 22 Jul 2016 13:31:59 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays C Russell Martin (knee) stayed in the sauna too long Thursday, July 21, and then became lightheaded and fell in the shower and hurt his knee, according to manager John Gibbons. Gibbons noted Martin will miss a "couple days."

Fantasy Tip: Josh Thole will see time behind the plate with Martin out, but Thole owns a .160/.253/.210 slash line. Continue to view the backup catcher as a desperation fantasy option. Martin should be held onto in all fantasy formats.
