Latest Update Pirates C Russell Martin rejects $15.3M qualifying offer.   Mon Nov, 10, 04:52 PM

Martin had a fantastic 2014 season, attaining what was arguably the best slash line of his career (.290/.402/.430). Like teammate Francisco Liriano, Martin decided to decline the $15.3 million qualifying offer made by the Pirates. After once again proving that he is one of the best defensive catchers in the game and showing that he has regained his 2006-2008 form at the dish, Martin should be in store for a nice payday.Analyst: Dom Murtha

Assets & FlawsComplete Stats

Assets:   Is very athletic for a catcher. He's also intense and focused at the plate. Hits for average, while taking a lot of bases on balls. Can steal a few bags, too. Calls a great game behind the dish and is a leader.
Flaws:  : Can be streaky at the plate and behind it (especially in terms of home-run power and when trying to throw out base-stealers). Could stand to be a more efficient base-runner. Appears to be wearing down.

    Pirates plan on extending the contract of catcher Russell Martin.
  • That would probably be a wise move considering that Pittsburgh has no one internally that can replace Martin. Over two seasons with the Pirates, Martin has batted .256 with 26 home runs and 122 RBIs, but he's helped Pittsburgh's pitching staff make remarkable strides. He is Pittsburgh's number one priority and they will do everything they possibly can to bring Martin back to the Steel City.Analyst: David Kerr
