Toronto Blue Jays C Russell Martin is out of the lineup Thursday, Oct. 1, with C Josh Thole hitting sixth.

Blue Jays | Russell Martin to catch R.A. Dickey

Thu, 17 Sep 2015 18:07:11 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays C Russell Martin will be behind the plate Saturday, Sept. 19, when SP R.A. Dickey makes his next scheduled start against the Boston Red Sox. Josh Thole has served as Dickey's regular catcher since the beginning of August, but manager John Gibbons wants Martin and Dickey to have experience working together in preparation for the playoffs.

Fantasy Tip: Although it's a small sample size, Martin ($4,600, 9.2% of cap) has caught Dickey ($6,700, 13.4% of cap) in both spring training and the regular season, so he won't be caught totally off guard Saturday. Martin is batting .333 with three home runs and 11 RBIs over the past week, while Dickey is 1-1 with a 2.78 ERA through three starts this month. Both players are worthy of consideration for FantasyScore lineups.

Blue Jays | R.A. Dickey gelling with Josh Thole

Thu, 10 Sep 2015 09:39:42 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays SP R.A. Dickey is 3-0 with a 3.25 ERA in his last four starts, and they have all come with C Josh Thole behind the plate.

Fantasy Tip: Dickey's ($6,700, 13.4% of cap) last three starts have been quality, but before that he allowed five earned runs in back-to-back outings. He's risk/reward on FantasyScore tonight in the Bronx, and keep an eye out on Russell Martin sitting in favor of Thole.

Blue Jays | Russell Martin not starting Tuesday

Tue, 08 Sep 2015 13:58:51 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays C Russell Martin is out of the starting lineup Tuesday, Sept. 8, against the Boston Red Sox. C Josh Thole is hitting ninth against Red Sox SP Henry Owens.

Fantasy Tip: Martin ($4,400, 8.8% of cap) has a .288-4-11 average against the left, but he is still seated for this game. Thole does not have enough at-bats accumulated to establish a true fantasy value.

Blue Jays | Russell Martin out again

Wed, 02 Sep 2015 12:15:23 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays C Russell Martin is not in the starting lineup Wednesday, Sept. 2. C Josh Thole is starting and is batting ninth against Cleveland Indians SP Trevor Bauer.

Fantasy Tip: After being called up yesterday when rosters expand, Thole won't be available just yet on FantasyScore. He had seven hits in 31 at-bats earlier this year, and he'll be a bottom-barrel priced catcher not worth a look on FantasyScore when he's playing.

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.

Sun, 23 Aug 2015 12:29:18 -0700

Fantasy Tip: Thole is making his first appearance at the major league level this season and is not available in FantasyScore. Remove Martin ($4,800, 9.6% of cap) from your daily lineups.

Blue Jays | Dioner Navarro to return for Game 2

Tue, 02 Jun 2015 11:42:52 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays C Dioner Navarro (hamstring) will be activated from the disabled list in time for Game 2 of the team's doubleheader Tuesday, June 2. He's been out since April 22 with a strained hamstring. C Josh Thole is expected to be sent down to the minors as a result. Navarro will see action as the team's designated hitter and as a pinch hitter.

Fantasy Tip: Navarro ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) won't be an outstanding choice on FantasyScore immediately after his activation, but he should be seen as a sleeper play when he faces certain right-handed pitchers. In Game 2 against Nats starter Max Scherzer, if he's in the lineup, Navarro should be avoided.

Tue, 02 Jun 2015 08:21:15 -0700

Fantasy Tip: Thole ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) has no FantasyScore appeal.

Blue Jays | Russell Martin resting vs. Nats

Mon, 01 Jun 2015 12:59:09 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays C Russell Martin is not in the starting lineup against the Washington Nationals Monday, June 1. C Josh Thole is starting behind the plate and batting sixth Monday.

Fantasy Tip: Martin ($5,100, 10.2% of cap) has caught fire over the past 25 games with 15 runs, four home runs, 11 RBI and a .340/.376/.564 slash line. His rising value is built into his FantasyScore cap hit, though, so be wary of when you insert him into your lineups. Thole ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) should be viewed as nothing more than a desperation source of cap relief.
