Blue Jays' Gibbons views Martin as 'ideal fit' for second spot in order

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(12/9/14) Blue Jays manager John Gibbons called recently signed catcher Russell Martin an "ideal fit" for the second spot in the team's batting order, per MLB.com. Gibbons said Martin fits well near the top of the order because he makes consistent contact and is coming off a season in which he had a .402 on-base percentage.

"He's a guy that everybody in the organization wanted to be able to get," Gibbons said. "That was big to set the tone ... One thing about him is he's a complete player, really good behind the plate and can really handle the bat."

Martin has just a .235 average in 79 career games batting second. However, he has a career .341 on-base percentage with 12 stolen bases out of the No. 2 spot in the order.

Blue Jays finalize five-year deal with catcher Russell Martin

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(11/18/14) The Blue Jays officially announced Tuesday the signing of catcher Russell Martin to a five-year, $82 million contract. It is the largest free-agent contract during general manager Alex Anthopoulos' tenure with Toronto, according to the team's official website.

The breakdown of Martin's contract will be $7 million in the first year, $15 million in the second year and $20 million in each of the remaining three seasons, according to CBSSports.com Baseball Insider Jon Heyman.

The 31-year-old catcher hit .290 with a .402 on-base percentage, .430 slugging percentage and .832 OPS in 111 games for Pittsburgh in 2014. The Blue Jays will be Martin's fourth MLB team. He played for the Dodgers, Yankees and Pirates over his first nine seasons in the majors.

Russell Martin signs five-year, $82 million deal with Blue Jays

by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(11/17/14) Russell Martin will be heading back to his hometown, according to CBSSports.com Baseball Insider Jon Heyman. The Blue Jays and Martin have agreed to a five-year contract worth $82 million on Monday, per Heyman.

Martin is coming off a strong 2014 campaign in which he compiled a .290/.402/.430 slash line with 11 home runs and 67 RBI in just 379 at-bats.

Report: Cubs favored to sign free agent C Russell Martin

by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(11/14/14) The Cubs are the favorites to land free agent catcher Russell Martin, according to the Chicago Sun-Times, which is further reporting that the signing could take place as early as the end of November.

The trade by the Pirates for catcher Francisco Cervelli could signal their surrender on the Martin front while the Dodgers haven't exhibited the same level of interest in Martin that the Cubs have. The Cubs, who have a strong base of young talent and recently landed manager Joe Maddon, appear to be setting their sights to win in 2015.

Martin is coming off a strong season in which he compiled a stat line of .290/.402/.430 with 11 home runs and 67 RBI in just 379 at-bats.

Dodgers looking to bring back Russell Martin

by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(11/13/14) The Dodgers are looking to sign catcher Russell Martin, according to CBSSports.com Baseball Insider Jon Heyman.

Martin spent his first six seasons with the club before signing with the Yankees. The 31-year-old Martin is coming off a season in which he hit .290/.402/.430 over 379 at-bats. He's the best catcher on the market, and has already drawn interest from a number of teams. The Pirates are said to be strong suitors for Martin, but it's unclear how much money the club can spend to keep him.
