Red Sox Rumors: JD Martinez, Boston 'Moving Close' to Contract Agreement
Feb 20, 2018, 20:13
Although, the Red Sox have not yet confirmed the deal. Martinez might settle for a little more than $100 million in guaranteed money from the Red Sox.
Evan Drellich of NBC Sports first reported the two sides were still engaged in conversations, with Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports later adding the parties are "moving close" to a deal, but noted it was not done yet.
Put his right-handed thump in Fenway for half a season and then let him play an unbalanced schedule in the generally hitter-friendly ballparks of the AL East, and Martinez - given health - is a threat to top 50 homers in 2018.
Gomez tweeted that according to a "reliable source" the contract is a five-year deal that Martinez can opt out of after two years. He has a career.282 batting average with 152 career home runs. If nothing else, he landed a 9-figure contract coming off last year's outstanding season. He started the year in Detroit but was traded to the Diamondbacks before the July 31 trade deadline.

This offseason, it's less surprising but still a little shocking that Martinez settled for something so low based on what he originally wanted. Martinez slammed 29 homers and drove in 65 runs in 62 games with Arizona, including a record-tying four home runs at Los Angeles on September 4.
Quick: Which ballplayer had the most recent four-homer game? Last season, between Detroit and Arizona, he slashed.303/.376/.690 with 45 home runs and 104 RBI, making him the most coveted bat of this offseason. And it comes courtesy of the Boston Red Sox.
The Red Sox had not yet confirmed the news as of last night, but there were indications of a buzz at JetBlue Park in the afternoon, when principal owner John Henry and chairman Tom Werner were seen leaving facility only to be called back to meet in a private space with president of baseball operations Dave Dombrowski and other officials. Unsurprisingly, they would rank 27th in home runs with 168. Martinez definitely could help Boston in that category.
But picking up Martinez should do a lot for unsafe Boston team that features young stars like Mookie Betts, Andrew Benintendi and Rafael Devers. But the type of money Martinez and his agent were reportedly seeking made it hard for the D-backs and Martinez to reach an agreement. Signing Martinez also won't cost the Red Sox any compensatory draft picks or any global budget space because he wasn't eligible for a qualifying offer from the Diamondbacks.
