Boston Red Sox Sign JD Martinez

Boston Red Sox Sign JD Martinez”

Per The Boston Globe's Pete Abraham, the Boston Red Sox remain "open" to signing free agent outfielder J.D. Martinez. Any reasonable pre-Hot Stove expectation of what Martinez would fetch on the market would've comfortably exceeded five years and $110 million.

Arizona acquired Martinez before last year's trade deadline, and he was arguably the best hitter in baseball after being dealt by the Detroit Tigers.

Boston is expected to use Martinez as its primary designated hitter, turning Hanley Ramirez into a platoon player at first with Mitch Moreland. Jerry Crasnick of ESPN reported that the physical is complete.

On Sunday morning the Boston Red Sox announced that they had signed infielder Eduardo Nunez to a one-year contract through the 2018 season with a player option for the 2019 season.

Núñez, 30, hit.313 (146-for-467) with 60 runs scored, 33 doubles, 12 home runs, and 58 RBI over 114 games between the San Francisco Giants and Red Sox last season. He finished 3rd with 45 home runs on a.303 average and.438 wOBA. He signed a minor league contract with the Detroit Tigers before the start of the 2014 season. Ultimately, the Red Sox and Diamondbacks were the only teams to show serious interest.

In the meantime, there's no other way to slice it: Martinez is a good (and necessary) get for the Red Sox.

The Syrian Observatory said they were local tribesmen loyal to President Bashar al-Assad and Afghan Shia militiamen. Those pro-regime vehicles and personnel who retreated across the river were not targeted, the official added.

The 6-foot-6 Stanton, who topped the majors in home runs and was the NL MVP last team, joins a lineup with 6-7 Aaron Judge, the AL homer leader.

It took a while, yes, but in the end the Red Sox got the free agent they sorely needed. Martinez started a combined 112 games in right field a year ago.

This offseason, it's less surprising but still a little shocking that Martinez settled for something so low based on what he originally wanted.

The Red Sox are holding their first full-squad workouts in Fort Myers on Monday, and most people have settled on the idea that the team will be bringing back essentially the same exact roster from previous year.
