Yankees Discuss Extension with Russell Martin

Andrew Marchand from ESPN New York reports that the New York Yankees have discussed restructuring the contract of catcher Russell Martin. Martin is currently on a one year deal, but they want to discuss a potential three year agreement.

YES Network later reported that GM Brian Cashman said that Martin and his agent, Matt Colleran, were not interested in what the Yankees had offered.

Martin is willing to be flexible to the Yankees payroll, as they are trying to avoid the luxury tax. Cashman and Colleran will be meeting again later this week, and they have already met to discuss this recently.

Martin is schedule to be a free agent after this season and currently has a salary of $7.5 million. It is not clear if he is looking for a raise, or just a longer deal. However, he was not interested in their first deal, and the Yankees will keep trying.
