Russell Martin: Reaches Deal With Pirates

Update: Martin has agreed to a contract with the Pirates, pending a physical, FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal reports.

Recommendation: Martin's deal is believed to be worth $17 million over two years. Boasting quality totals in home runs and stolen bases, Martin typically looks like an alluring fantasy option at catcher, but low contact rates have drained his batting average over the last few seasons. The annual batting average risk, along with the move to the much less hitter-friendly PNC Park for half of his games, could cause Martin's fantasy value to plunge further downward.
