    News

    Martin will start Game 3 of the NLDS on Sunday against the Nationals, Jorge Castillo of the Los Angeles Times reports.

    Impact

    Martin will catch Hyun-Jin Ryu in Game 3 with the series tied 1-1. Ryu has posted a sparkling 1.52 ERA when Martin is behind the dish, per Bill Plunkett of The Orange County Register, but that comes with a tradeoff offensively -- according to J.P. Hoornstra of the Los Angeles Daily News, the veteran backstop is just 3-for-22 with a double, an RBI and four strikeouts against Max Scherzer, who will toe the rubber for the Nats.
