Blue Jays C Russell Martin breaks through with multi-homer game

by Ted Leshinski | Staff Writer
(4/18/15) Blue Jays catcher Russell Martin hit his first two homers of the season on Friday, snapping an 0 for 33 slump in the process.

"It's definitely encouraging but it's not really satisfying when you don't end up winning the game," Martin said.

The homers were just Martin's second and third hits of the season, boosting his average from .042 to .111.

Blue Jays' Gibbons pins Martin's struggles on changing teams

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(4/15/15) Blue Jays catcher Russell Martin went 0 for 4 Tuesday against the Rays, extending his hitless streak to 21 at-bats. Martin compounded his problems with a costly throwing error in the eighth inning, which allowed Steven Souza to advance to third on a stolen-base attempt and eventually score the winning run.

"They bother me, probably, equally," Martin said of his slump and throwing error, per MLB.com. "I like to win baseball games ... any time you don't help the team win, it's not a good feeling. But it's over with. I'm not going to be down on myself. I'm trying my best out there."

Martin hasn't gotten a hit since Opening Day. He is batting .043 with eight strikeouts. While he is struggling, Blue Jays manager John Gibbons isn't surprised as Martin is getting acclimated to a new team.

"It's pretty common in this game ... if you get traded, or you're a free agent," Gibbons said. "These guys are human. Naturally, these guys want to get out to a good start. You're in a new place, things like that."

Slow start at plate for Blue Jays' Russell Martin

by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(4/13/15) Blue Jays catcher Russell Martin is a native Canadian, but his homecoming has gotten off to a slow start. 

Martin is one for his first 16 in 2015, for a .063 batting average. He has eight strikeouts, or one every two at bats. Martin has two strikeouts in each of his last three games. 

Josh Thole's demotion impacts Blue Jays roster, catcher rotation

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(3/31/15) The Blue Jays announced Tuesday catcher Josh Thole was optioned to Triple-A Buffalo. Thole's demotion means Russell Martin will be knuckleballer R.A. Dickey's personal catcher, per MLB.com.

Thole's demotion also means Dioner Navarro, who has asked for a trade, will be the backup catcher and get some at-bats at DH.

Blue Jays' Martin: Pirates 'were going to do everything they could'

by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(3/4/15) Blue Jays catcher Russell Martin says the Pirates did everything they could to try and re-sign him, according to the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

Martin signed a five-year, $82 million deal with Toronto, but said the Pirates really pushed to keep him around. "They were going to do everything they could," Martin said. "They were pretty vocal about that. But then it comes to a point where, as an organization, if you're thinking business-wise, you can't stack all your chips and then leave yourself vulnerable for later."

Martin also admitted that the opportunity to be a role model in Canada was a big reason he signed in Toronto. "The opportunity to play in Canada, for my family to be able to watch me play, to be a role model for younger Canadians and be that guy, it's a better fit for me overall for that reason," he explained.

In the end, the money and a fifth year led Martin to the Blue Jays. "[The Pirates] were pretty vocal, and I think that they definitely wanted me back. It was just a feeling that Toronto wanted me a little bit more," he said.

The 32-year-old hit .290/.402/.430 over 379 at-bats last season.
