D’Backs J.D. Martinez Seeking 7-Year, $210 Million Contract

When it comes to free agency, Arizona Diamondbacks free agent outfielder J.D. Martinez reportedly is looking to not only break the bank, but print his own money.

Martinez is asking for a seven-year, $210 million contract at the general manager meetings taking place this week, according to USA Today’s Bob Nightengale.

Martinez smacked 40 homers this past season, marking the fourth straight year he topped 20 homers.

Martinez has some defensive deficiencies, which were improved this year but still will cause teams to question his asking price.
