Russell Martin makes appearance at second base (Video)

BY foxsports • May 28, 2015

Russell Martin can do it all. The Gold Glove catcher was forced to fill in at second base today after eight innings behind the dish.

"I'm just a really good infielder, no matter what," Martin said, joking with reporters after the game.

It wasn't necessarily a surprise, though, when manager John Gibbons asked him to switch positions mid-game.

"We had talked about it a couple of weeks ago. We had another situation where we were a little bit short on the bench. I always knew that it was a possibility, and I think he even asked me a couple of days ago, too, in a situation kind of like that," Martin said.

Of course, as it always seems in situations like this, the ball found him while out at second and Martin made a good play to get the force out:

This is unofficial, but he has to be the stockiest second baseman in the league today, right?
