TORONTO (AP) Free agent catcher Russell Martin and the Toronto Blue Jays have finalized an $82 million, five-year contract.

Toronto announced the deal Tuesday, a day after Martin took a physical.

A three-time All-Star, Martin hit .290 with 11 home runs and 67 RBIs last season, while also helping the Pirates to a second straight playoff berth.

He gets $7 million next year, $15 million in 2016 and $20 million in each of the final three seasons.
