Yankees come to terms with Russell Martin

NEW YORK — The Yankees have agreed to terms on a contract with Russell Martin, multiple sources told MLB.com on Monday. Details of the deal, which is contingent on a physical and will not be made official until Martin does so, were not immediately available.

Martin was said to have been deciding between the Red Sox and Blue Jays.

Martin, 27, was deemed among the best catchers in the National League from 2007-08, when he was a back-to-back All-Star while compiling a .286 batting average, .380 on-base percentage and 32 homers for the Dodgers. But after a down year in 2009, Martin played 97 games in 2010 and then missed the rest of the season with a broken hip.

CASHMAN SHOULD DO WHATEVER IS NECESSARY TO TRADE FOR KING FELIX AND BRING HIM TO THE PINSTRIPES!!!!!!!!!!!

I actually am not dissapointed in lee’s decision. It was an awful lot of money to give a guy you may very well be stuck with in 3 years. I meen let’s faceit, he won’t be an ace at 35. AS far as the yankees go, i very much agree with the previous comment and say go get king felix . It’s almost a must now to compete with Boston’s lineup. Go do your job cashman, lets see how creative you are.
