The Yankees top choice at catcher is off the market.

According to Ken Rosenthal [2]and David Waldstein, [3] Martin has agreed to a two-year, $17-million deal with the Pirates. For the past few days, Pittsburgh has emerged as a favorite to sign Martin, and now the Yankees are without their top choice behind the plate.

Martin spent the past two years with the Yankees, and although his batting average has dipped considerably, he remains a potent power hitter with a good eye and a strong defensive reputation. In a thin catching market, there are few alternatives available.
