Russell Martin (C/3B, TOR)- Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 12+ Team Leagues

OWNED IN: 12% of leagues

ANALYSIS: Toronto Blue Jays catcher Russell Martin has fallen off a bit over the past few seasons. While Martin has seven straight seasons of double digit home runs, he is no longer the All-Star he was in 2015. While he has not necessarily returned to form in 2018, the Blue Jays' catcher has looked better recently and could be in for a strong finish to the year.

On the year, Martin has hit just .190 with nine home runs and 22 RBI. On the surface, everything outside the home runs is not all that impressive. However, Martin has hit .292 with three home runs, five RBI and seven runs scored in his eight games since the All-Star break. He is tied for the third most home runs, 12th most RBI and fifth most runs scored since the break.

There is no guaranteeing that Martin will be able to keep his hot streak up. However, he is going to see everyday starts on a team that is a modest 18th in runs scored and is going to get former MVP Josh Donaldson back soon. You could do worse than taking a chance on Martin.
