Red Sox sign coveted free agent JD Martinez

Red Sox sign coveted free agent JD Martinez

According to Alex Speier of the Boston Globe, the Red Sox previously offered Martinez a five-year deal worth around $100 million. However, because the deal has yet to be finalized, the specifics surrounding such a pact have yet to come to light.

The Boston Red Sox have chose to add a powerful bat after hitting an American League-low 168 home runs last season.

Before signing Austin Jackson in late January, the Giants reportedly listed Dyson, 33, atop their list of free agent starting centerfielders with Jon Jay and Cameron Maybin following respectively. In 119 games, Martinez posted a line of 0.303/0.376/0.690, while hitting 45 homeruns and 104 RBI. Fast-forward two years and Greinke has to find comfort in that it's all good for Arizona now that GM Mike Hazen is guiding the front office.

Curling controversy: 'Burned rock' fans flames during fiery match
A "burned rock" foul in the women's match between Canada and Denmark, would not be swept away very easily Friday. In the eighth end, Ulsrud was light in an attempted draw to the eight foot and forced Canada to steal a point.

The deal is a five year, $110 million dollar deal, with Martinez netting $50 million in the first two years.

Dyson hit.251 and stole 28 bases for Seattle last season. He has spent time with eight teams in the majors, including eight years with the Texas Rangers, three with the Detroit Tigers and, most recently, a brief stint at the end of last season with the Pittsburgh Pirates. You start throwing balls ... and missing spots, it doesn't matter, it's the big leagues. "I think our approach previous year was lacking offensively and we had issues that the players have already talked about". He has gone on to make a total of 764 career appearances, with 709 out of the bullpen, mostly in middle relief. Sock, the highest-ranked American at No. 8, is attempting to become the first player to win consecutive titles at Delray since the tournament moved from Coral Springs, Fla., in 1999.

Tillman was 1-7 with a 7.84 ERA in 19 starts and five relief appearances past year. The 19-year-old was drafted 12 overall in 2016 and now plays in A-ball. After more than a year of negotiations, the Major League Baseball Players Association refused to agree to the changes but also signed an agreement that it will not oppose the new rules. He has a career.282 batting average with 152 career home runs.
