Russell Martin Expects to Return From the DL on Wednesday

I missed this earlier today, but Ken Rosenthal had Russell Martin on the radio this afternoon, and Martin said that he expects to return from the disabled list on Wednesday.

Martin still has a one game suspension to serve when he returns, which he basically received for getting mad at Carlos Gomez and the Brewers during the brawl on April 20th.

Tim started Pirates Prospects in 2009 from his home in Virginia, which was 40 minutes from where Pedro Alvarez made his pro debut in Lynchburg. That year, the Lynchburg Hillcats won the Carolina League championship, and Pirates Prospects was born from Tim's reporting along the way. The site has grown over the years to include many more writers, and Tim has gone on to become a credentialed MLB reporter, producing Pirates Prospects each year, and will publish his 11th Prospect Guide this offseason. He has also served as the Pittsburgh Pirates correspondent for Baseball America since 2019. Behind the scenes, Tim is an avid music lover, and most of the money he gets paid to run this site goes to vinyl records.


Pirates Prospects has been independently owned and operated since 2009, entirely due to the support of our readers. The site is now completely free, funded entirely by user support. By supporting the site, you are supporting independent writers, one of the best Pittsburgh Pirates communities online, and our mission for the most complete Pirates coverage available.

Thank god. Watching Tony Sanchez behind the plate makes you want to throw up. He can’t frame pitches like Russell, can’t block like Russell, and certainly cannot throw at all. Yes, he’s still relatively inexperienced, but it is really scary watching him defensively behind the plate. Yes, he blocks pitches…he just does not control the blocks very well and you certainly do not want him to have to make any throw.


…..and he is not paid like Russell. Shocking that a rookie can’t do everything an 8 year veteran can isn’t it? In other news, he isn’t as bad as Kendall, Doumit, or Barajas behind the plate. We’ve only had Russ one year, lets not lose perspective
