According to Tony Jackson of the L.A. Daily News, Dodgers catcher Russell Martin still prefers to go year to year rather than sign a long-term extension. Jackson expects Martin to be arbitration-eligible after this season as a Super Two player. The Dodgers have tried to talk about an extension with Martin, but so far he has not been interested.
Super Two players go to arbitration four times instead of the normal three. Martin wouldn’t be eligible for free agency until after the 2012 season.
