J.D. Martinez waited and waited to decide on his destination for the 2018 season. Monday afternoon, ESPNs Pedro Gomez was first to report that the free agent outfielder agreed to terms with the Boston Red Sox.
It’s done. JD Martínez is a Red Sox.

Martinez gets a five year contact worth, with the first two years worth $50 million dollars. With Martinez out of the picture and Yasmany Tomas still sitting on the roster, the Diamondbacks have a decision to make. Tomas is owed big money(3 years, 45 million dollars). The Diamondbacks signed Jarrod Dyson to a two year contract shortly after Martinez went to Boston.
Dbacks act quickly, signing jarrod dyson to two-year deal. He gives them a cf next year should pollock leave.
