>Russell’s Musclin’ NY

Posted: May 24, 2011 in Sports

>Russell Martin has quietly been one of the Yankees biggest strengths this year, as he’s on pace for career numbers. With his 8 Home Runs, he’s already almost half way to his career high (19) and he’s only played in 40 games so far. He is also putting up his highest Slugging Percentage in his career (.489) which has helped keep the Yankees on top of the AL East standings.

Not only has Russell Martin provided great numbers this year, he’s brought stability to a position that the Yankees have had trouble with as they are in a transitioning period. Jesus Montero awaits in the minors, but for the moment Russell is handling the position very well and will hopefully continue to produce.
