Yankees Lose Martin to Pirates

Yankees Lose Martin to Pirates

Hyped by on December 3, 2012 Website:

The Yankees lost a good piece of their team to the Pittsburgh Pirates in catcher Russell Martin who signed with the Pirates for an affordable two-year 17 million dollar deal. The Yankees and Russell Martin were reported to be far apart in negotiations, and Brian Cashman said there was never an offer made to Martin.

Russell Martin did not have his best year at the plate only hitting .211, but the power was there for Martin, as he was able to hit a career-high 21 homeruns. Martin has been a good defensive catcher for the Yankees, and now he will be reuniting with his friend A.J Burnett in Pittsburgh.
