Martinez swatted 45 homers last year, but let's not forget that he missed 40 games with an injury too. He is among the handful of most efficient hitters in baseball over the last four seasons and ought to be drafted as such.

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.
