JD Martinez, Red Sox agree to five-year, $110 million deal

JD Martinez, Red Sox agree to five-year, $110 million deal”

J.D. Martinez is still not officially signed with the Boston Red Sox because he has not "completed" his physical yet. They remain hopeful that the deal can be made official on Friday.

On Wednesday, Martinez arrived for the first time at the spring training facility of the Red Sox and underwent his physical, which is the last step to finalize his new contract of five years and $110 million. However, officials on the Red Sox have insisted that the review process of all the medical information has simply not been completed. Everything in Major League Baseball takes far too long and Jones along with Sean Sylver vent about that while the Red Sox attempt to get J.D. Martinez's medical status via morse code.

Dombrowski wouldn't get into specifics about whether the Red Sox will send Martinez to Boston for further testing or fly a particular doctor to Fort Myers to see Martinez in person. "Sure, yeah", Price said. In December 2015, for example, the Sox agreed to terms with David Price on a Tuesday night, flew him to Boston for a physical and didn't hold a news conference until Friday of that week to finalize the seven-year, $217 million deal. In 2016, he ran into an outfield wall and suffered a fractured right elbow.

An agreement was eventually reached on Monday (19 February) and Martinez will be swapping the National League for the American League from the beginning of the season, after penning a multi-year contract.
