Russell Martin bumped up to second spot

Blue Jays manager John Gibbons announced that Russell Martin will bat second when he returns to the lineup on Thursday.

Fantasy Impact

Gibbons is hoping that switching around the batting order will provide a spark for the Jays' offense. Martin, who had usually been hitting sixth or seventh, hasn't done a lot recently to earn the promotion, batting just .129 in June. But he has drawn seven walks in his last 13 plate appearances and boasts an excellent 18 percent walk rate on the season, which is what you're looking for in a table setter. The move should provide a modest boost to Martin's fantasy value once he emerges from his slump.
