Pirates giving Russell Martin time off to rest
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

The Pirates chose to give catcher Russell Martin a second straight day off Sunday against the Mets as a chance to give him another day to rest, per MLB.com.

"Catcher is a physically-taxing position," Pirates general manager Neal Huntington said. "With the pure off-day [on Monday], [Pirates manager Clint Hurdle] and I walked through it and thought it was a good opportunity to give him another day to recover and keep him as strong and sharp as we can for the rest of the season."
