According to the LoHud Yankees Blog, Russell Martin will be having knee surgery due to a slightly torn meniscus discovered during his physical this week. They expect him to be ready for Spring Training.
Martin is expected to be the Yankees everyday catcher in 2011. What does this mean for Jesus Montero, the Yankees top catching prospect?
He could be traded for pitching. Brian Cashman said the team is in "a better position to do so," now that they have Martin.
So the Yankees signed an injured player to be their everyday catcher and Jesus Montero gets put on the trading block? I don't like them apples.
