Red Sox Land Big Name Slugger With Massive Contract

Red Sox Land Big Name Slugger With Massive Contract”

The Red Sox won the AL East, with 93 wins in 2017, in spite finishing last in the American League with 168 homers last season. He has a career.282 batting average with 152 career home runs. Being a free agent for more than 100 days didn't prevent Hosmer from getting an eight-year, $144 million deal from the San Diego Padres.

Heyman reported that the 33-year-old Dyson will sign for $7.5 million over two years, or $3.75 million a year.

But right before Spring Training, it seems that Martinez settled for less money than many thought he'd get when the offseason started.

The way it works out, however, certainly seems like a steal for the Red Sox. Last week, star right fielder Mookie Betts and shortstop Xander Bogaerts arrived in camp and admitted the team didn't have much fun last season.

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.

With a remastered swing, Martinez hit.315 with 23 homers in just 480 plate appearances in '14, and since joining the Tigers ranks seventh in the majors with a.936 OPS and sixth with 128 homers. That included a destructive 62-game tour with the Arizona Diamondbacks after a mid-July trade from the Detroit Tigers.

After the Red Sox were ousted in the ALDS for the second year in a row, ownership fired manager John Farrell and let go all but one member of his coaching staff (bullpen coach Dana LeVangie, whose contributions to the organization predated Farrell, was retained and promoted to pitching coach under new manager Alex Cora). Last season, between Detroit and Arizona, he slashed.303/.376/.690 with 45 home runs and 104 RBI, making him the most coveted bat of this offseason. The Sox have a big battle coming up if they want to three-peat as AL East champions and make a deep playoff run. But the type of money Martinez and his agent were reportedly seeking made it hard for the D-backs and Martinez to reach an agreement. Though it won't be easy with the Houston Astros, Cleveland Indians and archrival New York Yankees, all locked and loaded for the upcoming season, the Red Sox can feel reassured that they can compete for a World Series championship.
