Andrew Marchand of ESPN New York was told by Martin’s agent, Matt Colleran, that the free agent catcher recently visited “multiple cities” to see if they would be the right fit. Colleran declined to say where he went, so they are nothing more than “mystery cities” for now, but Marchand was told by a source earlier this month that the Rangers, Mariners, Pirates and Red Sox had expressed interest.
The Yankees remain in the hunt for Martin and appear willing to give him a multi-year contract. Colleran said there’s no timetable on a decision, but that he could sign before the Winter Meetings begin next Monday. The Yankees are considering A.J. Pierzynski as a potential fallback option, but aren’t involved on Napoli.
Martin, who turns 30 in February, batted .211/.311/.403 with 21 home runs, 53 RBI and a .713 OPS this past season.
