Primary Value Play:
Russell Martin (TOR) – The Blue Jays have an implied run total approaching six and no others offenses are within a run of Vegas’ expectations. This creates a unique situation where the goal of your lineup building in cash games is almost entirely centered around fitting in as many Jays as possible. Martin’s price tag varies dramatically around the industry. His skills are elite against LHP (.349 wOBA, .178 ISO since 2012 but .406 wOBA and .228 ISO against LHP in his first year in Toronto) and he often hits fifth or six behind a bunch of great hitters against LHP. On sites, the price is down, he’s our primary target at the position and a Top 30 hitter overall in our model.
