Well its finally official, JD Martinez will sign with the Boston Red Sox, and solidify the middle of their order as one of the hottest hitters from 2017. In his age 29 season last year, JD was a monster smashing 45 home runs at a .303 clip, splitting time between Detroit and Arizona.
Heading into 2018 in his age 30 season, he will look to add some alpha male power in the middle of the Sox order, and try and fill a much needed void. In 2017 the Red Sox were able to win the division despite hitting just 168 total home runs, in comparison to the league leading Yankees who smashed 241, and added that Stanton dude in the meantime. JD will be pivotal for the Red Sox in matching the Bronx Bombers, while trying to fill the void left by Big Papi.
It's still early, however the deal seems to be in the vicinity of 5 years and 110 million guaranteed, with an opt out after two years.
