The Pirates announced Sunday that Martin will be included as one of 19 players on the team's taxi squad for the 2020 season, Adam Berry of MLB.com reports.

Martin is one of the few members of the taxi squad with prior MLB experience, as he appeared in 20 games for the big club in 2019 and slashed .250/.325/.306 across 40 plate appearances. While he won't join the big club in Pittsburgh when workouts resume this week and will instead report to the team's alternative training site in Altoona, Martin should rank near the top of the list for a promotion to the Pirates if the team requires an extra body in the outfield at any point.
