Report: Red Sox have offered JD Martinez five years, $100 million

JD Martinez

J.D. Martinez reportedly has an offer in hand from the Boston Red Sox, and it’s easy to see now why he hasn’t taken it.

According to ESPN’s Buster Olney, Martinez has an offer from the Red Sox for roughly five years and $100 million.

This is a long way off from Martinez’s reported initial demands. Even if that price has come down a bit, the five years will probably be a sticking point — the Red Sox seem unlikely to go higher, while Martinez would clearly prefer a longer pact.

Martinez is coming off a 40-home run season, but it just doesn’t seem like he’s drawing a lot of interest, putting him in a tough spot.
