Boston Red Sox Are Close To Signing JD Martinez

Boston Red Sox Are Close To Signing JD Martinez

The Red Sox' team salary for luxury tax purposes was in the $210 million region before adding Martinez, so with a $22 million annual average value, the Red Sox should be able to remain under the $237 million mark, avoiding a costly penalty of 10 spots on their first-round draft pick and the loss of global bonus money.

In landing the former Arizona Diamondbacks player, the Red Sox add an important piece to the puzzle of three-peating as AL East Division Champions.

It appears that finally the Boston Red Sox have filled the huge void on offense that was left when David Ortiz retired following the 2016 season.

As soon as Giancarlo Stanton touched down with their main rivals, the Boston Red Sox were eager to take on NY - the Yankees, or maybe even the Jets and Giants. In a tight battle with Aaron Judge and the New York Yankees for supremacy in the AL East, J.D. Martinez may be the player they need to push the team over the Red Sox over the top. "They're running a two tight-end set".

That's why when the Yankees traded for Giancarlo Stanton, Dombrowski didn't overreact and overpay. He reached base safely in 33 consecutive games from May 12-July 16, the longest such streak in the majors last season. That prompted Yankees general manager Brian Cashman to reference another sport: "Boston's like the Golden State Warriors now in baseball", he said. Mitch Moreland was third on the Red Sox with 22 homers.

As has been rumored and anticipated since at least the dawn of recorded time, the Red Sox and free-agent slugger J.D. Martinez have reportedly agreed to terms on a five-year, $110-million contract. As we were reminded in last season's ALDS, a motivated Hanley Ramirez is one of the most unsafe hitters in baseball.

"I think it's good for the rivalry". "There's other good teams out there, too".

It was going to be expensive, sure, because when both Scott Boras and the Red Sox are involved, the dollar signs can get big easily.

He has said all along he will play if he produces.

"It doesn't matter who you're facing", reliever Matt Barnes said. He's in the prime of his career and should have plenty of opportunities to drive in runs with guys like Betts, Benintendi and Bogaerts hitting in front of him. You start throwing balls. and missing spots, it doesn't matter, it's the big leagues. He went from a ground ball hitter to hitting the ball in the air. The Reds offered $5.1 million.
