Hitters to start in Week 25
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(9/14/14) Looking for a sleeper hitter for Fantasy Week 25 (Sept. 15-21)? Russell Martin, Steve Pearce, Jed Lowrie, Xander Bogaerts, Josh Rutledge and Michael Cuddyer might just fit the bill.

Find out why in the latest Start and Sit Hitters.

Russell Martin slugs ninth home run Wednesday
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(9/10/14) Pirates catcher Russell Martin went 2 for 5 with a home run and three RBI in his team's 6-3 win over the Phillies Wednesday.

Martin put the Pirates up early with a two-run single in the top of the first inning. After Andrew McCutchen smacked an inside-the-park home run in the fifth, the catcher came up two batters later and delivered a more conventional home run. Martin has hit .291/.409/.421 with nine home runs, 57 RBI and four stolen bases in 337 at-bats.

Hitters to start in Week 24
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(9/7/14) Looking for a sleeper hitter for Fantasy Week 24 (Sept. 8-14)? Russell Martin, Matt Adams, Scooter Gennett, Luis Valbuena, J.J. Hardy and Mookie Betts are just of the few of the ones I recommend in the latest Start and Sit Hitters.

To find out why, be sure to check it out.

Russell Martin blasts off in loss to Cardinals
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(9/3/14) The steady, productive season of Pirates catcher Russell Martin continued Tuesday night with his first home run since Aug. 23.

Martin went deep in the second inning to give him eight homers on the season. His .292/.413/.420 stat line is his best since 2007. His on-base percentage would lead the major leagues if he had enough at-bats to qualify.

Russell Martin having impressive season
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(8/27/14) So you're the lucky owner who invested in Wilin Rosario and have driven yourself crazy trying to find an adequate replacement?

Let me ask you: Have you given a second thought to Russell Martin? Probably not. He's pretty much established his mediocrity over the last few years and is a not-so-impressive 68 percent owned.

Well, here's a revelation for you: Martin has averaged more Head-to-Head points per game this season than Buster Posey. Yes, really.

The reason I use average points per game is because he missed a month earlier this season with a strained hamstring. Since returning May 23, he's batting .305 with an incredible .431 on-base percentage and .860 OPS.

The plate discipline isn't so new to him. The batting average is. Plagued by inconsistency since his early days with the Dodgers, when he was shaping up to be an elite Fantasy catcher, he typically finishes with a batting average south of .250, but in three of the four months since his return, he has hit over .300.

Kind of makes 2008 seem not so long ago, doesn't it?
