Martin is not in the lineup for Tuesday's game against the Red Sox.

Martin started behind the plate three of the last four games, getting the nod at DH in the other. The Jays will often look to keep him in the lineup as the DH on his off days from catching, but the team also likes to use the slot to give other plays rest. Josh Donaldson will DH on Tuesday, with Danny Valencia playing third base.
