Russell Martin slugs a two-run home run on Thursday

Russell Martin went 1-for-3 with a two-run homer and a strikeout during the Blue Jays' loss to the Mariners on Thursday.

Fantasy Impact

Martin has just 13 hits on the year but surprisingly enough five of them have been home runs. The veteran is sporting just a .151/.277/.360 batting line on the year and he is only worth playing as a DFS punt on platforms that require you to roster a catcher.

Russell Martin drives in three runs in win over Rangers

Russell Martin went 3-for-4 with a solo home run and three RBI in Toronto's 8-5 victory over Texas on Friday.

Fantasy Impact

Martin is off to a solid start and is showing his power once again. The veteran is no longer one of the top catchers in fantasy but is still worth owning in deeper leagues.

Russell Martin placed on 10-day disabled list

Russell Martin was placed on the 10-day disabled list Saturday due to a left oblique strain.

Fantasy Impact

Martin was borderline ownable in fantasy leagues hitting just .195 after the All Star break and can be dropped. Owners needing an option to replace Martin should look to Alex Avila of the Cubs who is available in many leagues.

Russell Martin reaches three times

Russell Martin went 1-for-3 with two walks in Sunday's 7-6 loss to the Astros.

Fantasy Impact

Martin continues to rank among the league leaders in walks, but his .226 batting average, 12 HRs, and 27 RBIs are nothing to write home about. That said, he isn't all that far off from his 2015/2016 level of production and could still easily finish in the top-12 at an exceptionally weak catcher position.
