Russell Martin (TOR) – T.J. House just hasn’t been able to get RHBs out in his brief major league career (.373 wOBA, 1.03 HR/9 allowed). He had shown some interesting peripherals last season, specifically a strong GB Rate (60.9 percent) but this year the velocity is down and he’s walking 15.8 percent of batters faced. Martin has been a solid performer against LHP, posting a .332 wOBA and .161 ISO since 2012. Martin ranks within our Top 25 overall hitters.
