After a lengthy dance, Martinez finally signed with the Red Sox in mid-February, placing him in an ideal situation. Martinez had an other-worldly year last season, hitting 45 home runs in just 119 games and leading the league in hard-contact rate. He'll now bat in the middle of a strong Boston lineup, one that should allow him to surpass both 100 runs scored and 100 RBI. It's unclear whether Martinez has truly morphed into a potential 60-home-run-hitter, but his move to Boston essentially guarantees that he will be an elite fantasy outfielder this season.

J.D. Martinez signs with Boston Red Sox

J.D. Martinez has signed with the Boston Red Sox, according to ESPN's Pedro Gomez on Twitter. While he has been connected to the Red Sox since before Free Agency began, but it took until the start of Spring Training in an incredibly sluggish MLB offseason for the two sides to finally agree on a deal. Early reports from Gomez and Jon Morosi of MLB Network have the agreement as a five-year deal worth $110 million, with Martinez having the ability to opt out after two years.

Fantasy Impact

Martinez slashed .303 / .376 / .690 with 45 home runs, 103 RBIs, and 85 runs scored with the Detroit Tigers and Arizona Diamondbacks, and he inserts some desperately-needed power into the middle of Boston's lineup. The Red Sox have a crowded outfield, with Mookie Betts, Jackie Bradley Jr., and Andrew Benintendi, while Hanley Ramirez has been pencilled into the designated hitter slot, so it is not immediately clear where Martinez will play every day. Boston has some time to figure that out, and it is entirely possible that another deal could be coming.
