Blue Jays' Russell Martin determined to return despite lost season

Baltimore looks to halt its five-game losing streak when it visits the Toronto Blue Jays on Tuesday for the middle contest of their three-game series.

So far this season, Martin has only played in 81 games and was hitting.223, a full 30 points below his career average.

Martin has been a 20 home run and 70 RBI each of his first two seasons with Toronto, but it remains highly unlikely that he will reach those numbers this season. "If I can show that I'm back to my normal self, what I've done the last few years for these guys, maybe they'll want me back".

Baltimore was held scoreless through six innings before cashing in runs in each of the seventh and eighth, grabbing the lead until the bottom of the ninth when Toronto scored two more to earn the walk-off win. Sportsnet NOW has you covered. For the second time this season, Baltimore Orioles catcher Wellington Castillo couldn't manage to be on the receiving end of a foul tipped-ball in the worst possible spot.

In combination with all those playoff games, that's a sizable amount of wear and tear.

Gibbons said he'd like to see his No. 1 catcher go through another round of batting practice on Wednesday.

Kudos to Darwin Barney for managing to look good all while panicking his way towards a base ... all while making it safe into third. I don't feel that way. I could have gone either way, you know.

Rookie Richard Urena has been showing he's comfortable at the big league level ever since the Blue Jays called him up earlier this month. That could leave them looking for non-tenders or players squeezed off 40-man rosters, which is likely to mean only an incremental gain over the likes of Luke Maile, Raffy Lopez and Miguel Montero.

Kanu's lawyer, Ifeanyi Ejiofor, in a statement, said what transpired at the home of the leader of IPOB was a siege. He, however, said no amount of intimidation would make him abandon the struggle for Biafra independence.

The Blue Jays figure to have a veteran back Wednesday. The best hope for the Jays is that Martin can shake off this injury and post a healthy 2018.

But beyond the pitch-framing, the game-calling and the.735 OPS in a down-year offensively, there's also Martin's toughness and determination that are difference-makers. He has reached base in 8-of-9 games since he was promoted to the big leagues for the first time when rosters expanded on September 1.

"There's only a couple of weeks left, but it's important to him", Gibbons said of Martin's return from the DL.

Martin's motivation is, as always, simple and singular.
