Although Russell Martin never played after September 3 this season, the Blue Jays still see him as a potential starting catcher in 2019.
"He makes such a difference for pitchers with his receiving, with his leadership, with his instincts, with his confidence," GM Ross Atkins said Tuesday. "If he’s near his best, he’s playing. How regularly? We’ll see. It’ll depend on Danny Jansen, Reese McGuire, Luke Maile, Max Pentecost. There’s other pieces to that equation." The Jays would almost certainly prefer to trade Martin, but it'd take eating salary and likely settling for little in return. Martin is due $20 million next season. Oct 3 - 11:20 AM
