Blue Jays, Russell Martin agree to 5-yr/$82M deal

Veteran catcher Russell Martin has agreed to a five-year, $82 million deal with the Toronto Blue Jays, sources confirmed to ESPN's Buster Olney.

The deal, which had been earlier reported by Fox Sports, is pending a physical exam.

In 2014, the 31-year-old Martin had an offensive season reminiscent of those at the beginning of his career, batting .290 with 11 home runs and 67 RBIs for the Pittsburgh Pirates, while also setting a career best in on-base percentage (.402).

Martin, who was born in Toronto, also led the majors by throwing out 37 attempted base stealers and finished fourth overall with a caught-stealing percentage of 38.5 as he threw out 37 of the 59 baserunners attempting to steal with him behind the plate.

In nine seasons with the Los Angeles Dodgers, New York Yankees and Pirates, Martin has hit .259 with 119 homers and 540 RBIs.

Guess this makes Navarro expendable because his production is fine for a catcher, but underwhelming for a DH. Although I doubt Smoak will make any sort of impact in replacing Adam Lind.
