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.

Russell Martin gets ejected on Thursday

Russell Martin was ejected for arguing balls and strikes on Thursday. He struck out in both of his at-bats.

Fantasy Impact

Martin was the third Blue Jay to get the hook in the fifth inning, after manager John Gibbons and starter Marcus Stroman. Like most Blue Jays, Martin has had a forgettable season, and he's now struck out in 13 of his last 31 at-bats.

Russell Martin hits homer to help lead Blue Jays to victory

Russell Martin went 2-for-4 and hit his 10th home run of the season Monday in the Blue Jays' win over the A's.

Fantasy Impact

The home run last night was nice but Martin has been slumping of late. The 34-year-old catcher is hitting just .195 over his last 14 games played. Martin probably needs to be held onto in 12 team leagues and deeper but is not a must own in standard leagues if owners can find a better option.
