The biggest fish in the free agent pond has finally been caught.
Martinez's deal comes two days after fellow Scott Boras client Eric Hosmer agreed to an eight-year, $144 million contract with the Padres, marking a steady end to the stalemate between major-league clubs and the league's prized free agents. Earlier reports had Boston offering the prized free agent five years and around $100 million. Martinez's last contract, signed with the Tigers in 2016, was for $18.5 million. Boston hasn't come close to offering the $200 million the outfielder had been supposedly seeking, willing to pay Martinez $125 million over five years, according to the Boston Herald. However, interest in Martinez was far more tepid than anyone expected. And by doing so, the Red Sox probably have their designated hitter.
An agreement certainly isn't guaranteed, considering Martinez has remained unsigned for the entire offseason. That put Boston in the driver's seat. The point is you make space for a masher like Martinez, and the Sox will find a way.
Arizona was the other team considered to be in contention for Martinez' services after he hit.302 with a 1.107 OPS and 29 homers in 62 games with the Diamondbacks after being acquired from the DetroitTigers in mid-July.
With the Yankees adding Giancarlo Stanton and sporting one of the most powerful lineups in the league, it became important for the Red Sox to try and match New York's pop. Getting Martinez will certainly help with that. He hit.303 with 45 home runs in 2017. His poor grades in defensive metrics may have hurt his value this offseason, but that doesn't figure to be an issue with the Red Sox.
"Job well done", Red Sox owner John Henry said Monday on the first day of full-squad workouts. Martinez can play first base, he can play the outfield and he can DH.
"I think we have the right team", Henry said.
Ultimately, both sides should be pleased with this deal. Martinez finished the 2017 season with the Diamondbacks. If nothing else, he landed a 9-figure contract coming off last year's outstanding season.
