Russell Martin resting Thursday against Cubs
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(4/10/14) Pirates catcher Russell Martin has played just two games in a row, but a day game Thursday after a Wednesday night game has him sidelined against the Cubs.

Martin is on a mini-tear. He has four hits in the last two games and smashed two solo home runs Wednesday night. He has recovered from a slow start to raise his batting average to .292.

Pirates trio combines for five solo homers
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(4/10/14) The Pirates managed to score five runs on just five hits Wednesday against the Cubs, and they all came on solo home runs.

Third baseman Pedro Alvarez got the scoring started with his fifth-inning shot, and he followed that up with one more in the ninth. The Pirates also got a two home-run game out of catcher Russell Martin, while Travis Snider added his own longball in the 7-5 loss.

Alvarez now has four home runs on the season, while Snider and Martin both went deep for the first time in Wednesday's game. 

Russell Martin surging as he returns to full strength
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(3/13/14) Pirates catcher Russell Martin heads into play Thursday leading the Grapefruit League with four home runs. Martin has appeared in just six spring games thus far, but he's done plenty of damage, posting nine RBI and a 1.400 slugging percentage.

Martin credits his production to being healthy, which is something he didn't have the luxury of in 2013 because of a shoulder injury he sustained in spring training lingering all year.

"The offseason can do wonders," Martin said, per MLB.com. "I took some time off and did some exercises to strengthen that shoulder. Now I feel [freaking] great. Got to knock on wood, and hopefully just keep it that way. 

"I'm putting good swings on pitches I want to put into play. That's what I've been working on. I feel like I have a plan when I got out there."

Martin also said he's moderately adjusted his approach at the plate after watching teammate and NL MVP Andrew McCutchen.

"From looking at Cutch hit, with his open stance, he looks so comfortable," Martin said. "So I started to open up [and spread the legs] a little bit, and it's allowed me to feel more relaxed. I'm sort of winding up with the pitcher, getting ready a little earlier. And, standing taller, you feel that you won't wear down; there's a little less weight on the knees. But really, mostly it's just being healthy."
