Player Notes
Russell Martin knocked in the Blue Jays' only two runs with a double in Sunday's loss to the Braves.

Advice: Martin plated a pair of runs in the sixth inning to bring the Jays back to within 5-2, but they weren't generating much offense otherwise. Martin, who went 1-for-4 on Sunday, started the season with one hit in 32 plate appearances over his first eight games, but has four hits -- three of which have gone for extra bases -- in 12 plate appearances in his last three games.

Russell Martin muscled up on his first two home runs of the 2015 season on Friday, but that wasn't enough for the Jays to overcome the Braves.

Advice: The veteran backstop tagged Julio Teheran for a solo shot in the second inning then replicated the feat off Jim Johnson in the eighth. He finished the evening 2-for-3 plus a walk, raising his season slash to a still brutal .111/.306/.333. Hopefully this offensive explosion will get him going.

Sun, Apr 19 Rotoworld
Russell Martin has one hit and 10 strikeouts in his first 28 plate appearances with the Blue Jays.

Advice: It's been a rough start for the 32-year-old catcher, who signed a five-year, $82 million free agent contract with Toronto in the offseason after batting .290/.402/.430 last summer for the Pirates. Martin has been very up and down at the plate throughout his career. Maybe this will be one of those down years, or maybe it's way too early to be closely examining any player's production.
