What Should The Yankees Do With Russell Martin?
Martin is currently hitting just .176 with eight home runs. Now the Yankees to this point have been fine offensively with Martin's lack of production. Martin is still outstanding behind the plate, however with Alex Rodriquez and Mark Texiera not having their normal years can the Yankees afford Martin to stay below .200? The Yankees will have to think long and hard about offering Martin arbitration after this season, but this season is more of a concern. Can they make it through the American League with a catcher hitting .176? Unfortunately they might have to.
Austin Romine is yet to play this year in the minor leagues due to injury. None of the other catching prospects are anywhere near ready. Is it worth trading a prospect to fill a position that you already have the prospects who will eventually fill it? Yankee fans, lets hear your thoughts.
