The Red Sox have signed free agent JD Martinez despite all the noise in the past few weeks that Martinez and his camp were "fed up" with Boston. The 30-year-old Martinez has changed his swing to improve his launch angle and become one of the top home-run threats in the majors.
The Red Sox, seeking to upgrade the middle of their lineup after finishing last in the American League in home runs in 2017, emerged as a potential suitor for Martinez earlier this offseason and reportedly offered him a five-year deal worth approximately $100 million last month.
With the Red Sox prepared to start an outfield of Andrew Benintendi, Jackie Bradley Jr. and Mookie Betts, Martinez could see the bulk of his at-bats in the DH role, which was manned primarily by Hanley Ramirez in 2017. His salary is $20 million each year from 2018-22 and would be $13 million annually from 2023-25 if he doesn't terminate the deal.
Both ESPN and The Associated Press reported the signing, which is still subject to a physical and has not yet been officially announced by the team. Tillman was 1-7 with a 7.84 ERA in 19 starts and five relief appearances a year ago. But his career numbers are solid with 215 homers, 117 RBI, and a.287 batting average. Eric Hosmer is in the process of finalizing a $144 million, eight-year deal with San Diego while third baseman Mike Moustakas and pitchers Jake Arrieta and Alex Cobb are among the stars looking for places to play. He also doesn't have much to provide in the outfield, posting a awful -7.7 UZR previous year.
With many teams adopting "file and trial" strategies, the only players who reached agreements after the January 12 exchange of proposed salaries were Houston outfielder George Springer, Baltimore second baseman Jonathan Schoop, Orioles pitcher Kevin Gausman, Detroit shortstop Jose Iglesias and Pittsburgh reliever Felipe Rivero. He had 29 homers and 65 RBIs in 62 games with the Diamondbacks.
About half the 166 players who exercised free-agency rights in November remain unsigned.
