MLB Rumors: New York Yankees Making Strong Pursuit for Russell Martin?

Yankees nearly made a trade for a catcher this week.

According to the New York Times' Michael S. Schmidt, the Yankees and Dodgers nearly had a deal worked out that would have sent Francisco Cervelli to Los Angeles for Russell Martin.

The Dodgers did just non-tender Martin, making him a free agent, so now the Yankees wouldn't have to give up anybody if they wanted to pursue Martin to be their next catcher.

It's not surprising the Yankees are looking for a possible upgrade at catcher considering long-time catcher Jorge Posada is transitioning to the designated hitter spot for 2011.

The only catcher on the roster is Cervelli, who had a strong beginning and finish in 2010, but struggled during the middle of the season.
