Pirates to extend qualifying offer to Russell Martin
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

The Pirates will extend a qualifying offer to catcher Russell Martin, according to CBSSports.com Baseball Insider Jon Heyman. 

General manager Neal Huntington has said the club will do whatever it can to retain Martin, but there's some believe he's already priced himself out of Pittsburgh's budget. The club reportedly offered Martin a long-term deal during the season, but Martin declined. 

With the qualifying offer, Martin could return to the Pirates for one season at a $15.3 million salary. He's expected to receive a lucrative multi-year deal on the market, so he may end up declining that offer. Martin hit .290/.402/.430 over 379 at-bats.

by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

Pirates catcher Russell Martin turned down a contract offer, according to CBSSports.com Baseball Insider Jon Heyman. 

The club made an attempt to re-sign Martin at some point during the season, but the catcher declined. The team pushed off extension talks into the season, but Martin quickly boosted his value. It's believed the Pirates will do everything they can to try and keep him, but Martin may have pushed himself out of their price range. Martin hit a solid .290/.402/.430 over 379 at-bats with the club.

Russell Martin collects one hit Wednesday
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

Pirates catcher Russell Martin picked up one hit Wednesday against the Giants.

The Pirates only mustered four hits against Madison Bumgarner, so Martin was one of the standout performers during the contest. During his last at-bat, the fans chanted for Martin to re-sign with the club during the offseason. The team continued to chant even after Martin flew out. He gave the fans a tip of the cap before going into the dugout. Martin is set to be a free agent during the offseason.
