He took a no-decision when the Jays came back to win it in the ninth. The Toronto Blue Jays have named Marcus Stroman as Wednesday's starter versus the visiting Baltimore Orioles. You get someone on second base late in a tight game, everybody in the stands can see if you're trying to get somebody over or trying to get a job done, depending on your role on the team. There's really no panic, he just looks like he's been playing here for a while.

Clearly they're in need of a better backup but having Martin in place can be an impediment to finding one. "Not to say you don't enjoy the three-run homer because that always plays".

The Toronto Blue Jays reinstated catcher Russell Martin from the disabled list on Tuesday, ahead of their American League baseball game against the Baltimore Orioles.

The left oblique strain Martin suffered August 11 sent him to the disabled list for a second time, with a nerve issue in his left shoulder having sidelined him for 12 games back in May.

Gibbons does not really care about Martin's year-long struggles at the plate.

Well, he's going to find out what kind of difference an extra month of rest makes this winter, when the Blue Jays have some interesting questions to answer about their catching situation.

"There's only a couple of weeks left, but it's important to him", Gibbons said of Martin's return from the DL. "I could have gone either way but he wants to do it so". "But he wants to do it, so".

"As a professional, when you're ready to go, you're ready to go", came Martin's response. "That's what I'm going to try and do".

Gausman will be making his sixth start of the season against the Blue Jays on Wednesday. At the time, manager John Gibbons hoped to use Sanchez out of the bullpen when he returned to Toronto's lineup but, with the Blue Jays out of the playoff picture, the team has settled on a more cautious path. The under is 20-5-1 in the last 26 meetings.

Dylan Bundy started for Baltimore, allowing a run and five hits over six solid innings.

He threw on flat ground on August 19, the first time he had played catch since the loss to the Red Sox. In four starts since, he is 0-1 with a 4.74 ERA, but the team is 2-2. 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.

Bundy's unbeaten streak ended at seven starts on September 4, when he was tagged by the New York Yankees for five runs on five hits and four walks in four innings.

He is 1-0 with a 0.00 ERA in two starts against Baltimore this season and 3-3 with a 4.29 ERA in nine career games (eight starts) vs. the Orioles.
