Arizona acquired Martinez before last year's trade deadline, and he was arguably the best hitter in baseball after being dealt by the Detroit Tigers. Here's a potential look at what their lineup could look like on Opening Day, according to Boston Globe reporter Pete Abraham.
J.D. Martinez and the Boston Red Sox have, at long last, come to an agreement. His overall season stats included a slash line of.303/.376/.690 with 45 home runs, 104 RBI, 85 runs and a bWAR of 4.1. Martinez might settle for a little more than $100 million in guaranteed money from the Red Sox.
In essence, that night summed up Martinez's summer with the D-backs and his 2017 season in general, so Red Sox fans: Have fun. He's averaged 32 home runs a year since 2014, with an average 149+ OPS and a slash line of.300/.362/.574 with a.936 OPS in that span. He's entering his age-30 season and it's easy to believe the Sox will be happy if his offense stays even remotely at the level it was in 2017.
Obviously, Martinez getting $50 million over the first two years of his deal is quite the payday.

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).
It took a while, yes, but in the end the Red Sox got the free agent they sorely needed. Dyson is a lifetime.258 hitter with 12 home runs, 131 RBIs and 204 steals in eight big league seasons, the first seven with the Royals. Martinez started a combined 112 games in right field past year. But he can play all three outfield positions and should have an impact.
Dyson got on base at a.324 clip last season and stole 28 bases in 111 games.
