News: The Pirates plan to extend Martin the $15.3-million qualifying offer, CBSSports.com reports. Impact: The $15.3 million would represent a significant raise for Martin, who earned a combined $17 million over the past two seasons, but he'll likely receive several multi-year offers in free agency after an outstanding 2014 campaign. Martin, 31, hit .290/.402/.430 with 11 homers in 111 games during the regular season, and is also highly regarded for his pitch framing and throwing abilities. This move would protect the Pirates, as they would receive a compensatory draft pick should Martin leave this winter.(RotoWire, )
