Player Notes
Russell Martin is not in the Blue Jays starting lineup on Saturday.

Advice: It's nothing more than a routine day of rest for the veteran backstop. Josh Thole will get the call behind the dish and bat ninth for the Jays against Ervin Santana and the Twins on Saturday.

Russell Martin went 2-for-5 with a homer and five RBI in Friday’s 15-8 victory over the Twins.

Advice: Martin cleared the bases with a double to left-center field in the sixth inning, but he didn’t stop there. He slugged a two-run homer one inning later, which served as the exclamation point on a five-run frame for Toronto. After hitting eight homers through his first 95 games this season, Martin has seven homers in his last 11 games.

Russell Martin went 2-for-4 with a two-run homer in Friday’s loss to the Indians.

Advice: His first-inning blast off Trevor Bauer was the only offense of the night for the Blue Jays. It was almost enough for the victory before the Indians came back to win in the ninth. Martin now has five homers in his last five games. He’s batting .244/.342/.402 with 13 homers and 50 RBI on the year.
