News: Martin, who was given Sunday off against the Rockies, has reached base 13 times in his last 16 at-bats. Impact: It would appear he has a favorable matchup Monday against southpaw Madison Bumgarner, but Martin is batting .171/.386/.171 in 57 plate appearances against lefties. Backup Chris Stewart hit well over the weekend and it wouldn't be shocking to see manager Clint Hurdle write Stewart's name in the lineup one more time.(RotoWire, )
