Latest Update Martin logs two hits Wednesday   Thu Jul, 24, 06:00 AM

Martin has now hit safely in four straight games, as he continues to have a bounce back season behind the dish for the Pirates. He is now slashing .282/.407/.392 with five home runs and 35 RBI through 209 at-bats, which is very respectable production from the catcher position. Although there is a good chance his batting average take a hit down the road, his power is not going to go away, making him a solid option for those in deep league formats. Analyst: Matthew Beck

Assets & FlawsComplete Stats

Assets:   Is very athletic for a catcher. He's also intense and focused at the plate. Hits for average, while taking a lot of bases on balls. Can steal a few bags, too. Calls a great game behind the dish and is a leader.
Flaws:  : Can be streaky at the plate and behind it (especially in terms of home-run power and when trying to throw out base-stealers). Could stand to be a more efficient base-runner. Appears to be wearing down.

    Russell Martin is not in the Pirates starting lineup on Sunday.
  • Maybe it's because he's 1-for-9 in the last two games since coming back from the break or maybe it's because of a day game following a night game. We'll assume the latter as that's the usual move. Chris Stewart will get the work behind the plate Sunday.Analyst: Howard Bender

    Russell Martin hits fifth home run
  • Martin is now 7-for-20 (.350 BA) with two extra-base hits (1 HR), five RBI, four runs scored and three walks over his last six games as he continues to have a nice bounce back season after a rough first year with the Pirates. He is now slashing .282/.413/.409 with five home runs, 28 RBI and has even added three stolen bases. Although he may not be the most productive catcher to own, there are far worse options to deploy than this Canadian baseball player. Analyst: Matthew Beck
