Blue Jays' Jarrod Saltalamacchia: Developing chemistry with Marco Estrada

by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
(4/16/17) Saltalammachia received high praise from Saturday's battery mate, Marco Estrada, and the two have developed productive chemistry that could lead to more playing time for the catcher, Laura Armstrong of the Toronto Star reports.

Saltalamacchia, who signed with the Jays in the offseason, has started just two of the team's first 13 games while amassing a measly 10 at-bats. However, the door may be open to increased plate appearances after Estrada -- who struggled last time out -- pointed to the 31-year-old's influence as a key to the pitcher's seven scoreless innings. "It was the way Salty called the game. I was just trying to follow him, elevated a lot of fastballs and had them swinging at it," said the right-hander. As of now, Saltalamacchia is unworthy of a fantasy roster spot. But if he settles in as Estrada's routine catcher, the veteran could turn up as a decent punt play in daily leagues on occasion.

Blue Jays' Jarrod Saltalamacchia: Receives starting nod Saturday

by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
(4/15/17) Saltalamacchia is hitting eighth in Saturday's lineup against the Orioles.

It marks just the second start this season for the backup catcher, who is just 1-for-7 at the plate thus far. With Russell Martin struggling to a .076 average out of the gate, Saltalamacchia could make a case for more playing time with some strong offensive production -- though that may be wishful thinking considering his dismal 2016 season.

Blue Jays' Jarrod Saltalamacchia: Gets starting nod Friday

by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
(4/7/17) Saltalamacchia is starting at catcher and batting eighth in Friday's game against the Rays, Shi Davidi of Sportsnet reports.

Russell Martin gets the day off, allowing Saltalamacchia a rare starting opportunity. The switch-hitter will look to make an immediate impact upon his new team, though he'll need to improve upon his 2016 stat line -- .171/.284/.346 -- if he is to see more regular playing time in a talented Blue Jays lineup.

Blue Jays' Jarrod Saltalamacchia: Added to 25-man roster

by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
(4/3/17) The Blue Jays purchased Saltalamacchia's contract from Triple-A Buffalo on Sunday.

Russell Martin will work as the Blue Jays' primary option at catcher, but Saltalamacchia, who attended spring training as a non-roster invitee, quickly distinguished himself as the top candidate for backup duties. The veteran backstop still has some power in his bat, but his .309 career on-base percentage will make it difficult for him to seriously push Martin for playing time.

Blue Jays' Jarrod Saltalamacchia: Playing time in question

by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
(3/22/17) Saltalamacchia's workload this season will heavily depend on how much work starter Russell Martin wants to take on, Corey Long of MLB.com reports.

Manager John Gibbons said he isn't far from disclosing the Jays' planned pitching rotation this season. In the process of making that announcement, he will also figure out how he wants to utilize the backup catcher. The skipper added that he'll look to identify which pitcher Saltalamacchia meshes with best early in the campaign before making a set schedule for the catchers. Ultimately, though, the divvying of playing time will be up to Martin. "Really, it's going to revolve around Russ and when he needs a day," Gibbons said. In 2016, Martin logged his heaviest workload in seven season, but the gritty veteran is unlikely to cede any time behind the dish if he can avoid it. For now, Saltalamacchia is nothing more than a handcuff for Martin owners and a punt in daily leagues when he's called upon.
