Russell Martin is "one name to consider" as the Giants search for catching help, per Henry Schulman of the San Fransisco Chronicle.
Buster Posey opted out of the 2020 season on Friday and the Giants are considering adding Martin as a replacement. The 37-year-old slashed .220/.337/.330 with six homers, 20 RBI, 29 runs and one stolen base across 209 at-bats for the Dodgers in 2019. "He's 37, but the Dodgers loved him last year," added Schulman. "Leadership strong." Martin has some potential suitors and will likely end up on a roster in the near future.
Russell Martin delivered a walk-off, two-run single in the bottom of the ninth to help the Dodgers beat the Cardinals 2-1 on Wednesday.
It's yet another walk-off win for Los Angeles, who continues to look like the best team in baseball. Martin should continue to serve as a backup to Will Smith for the rest of 2019.
Russell Martin went 2-for-3 with a walk and a run scored as the Dodgers beat the Phillies 8-0 on Sunday.
Martin has hit well in replace of an injured Austin Barnes, batting .265 with a .763 OPS. The 36-year-old still isn't a fantasy option, however.
Martin was placed on the 10-day IL Wednesday with inflammation in his lower back.
Martin was off to a decent start to the season, batting .333 with one home run and two RBIs over 22 plate appearances. His absence will likely mean more time for Austin Barnes behind the dish, with Rocky Gale serving as the backup.
Russell Martin went 2-for-3 with a homer and a walk as the Dodgers beat the Rockies 10-6 on Friday.
Jettisoned by the Blue Jays over the off-season, Martin is off to a blistering start with his former team. The 36-year-old is hitting .417 here in the early part of the season. However, Austin Barnes remains the backstop to own in Los Angeles.
