Pirates reportedly willing to offer Martin three years

Previous reports have linked Pittsburgh to the two-year Yankees catcher, and George King has offered details, writing that the Pirates recently increased their offer from two years up to three.
“They know they have pay a little more and go a little longer,” King’s source said.
If the Yankees are willing to go three years with Martin, it could be a real indication that they no longer believe Austin Romine can be a legitimate everyday catcher. Three years would basically bridge the gap until — if all goes well — Gary Sanchez will be ready for the big leagues.
