J.D. Martinez Willing to Hold Out Into Spring Training for New Deal

Published

Free agent outfielder J.D. Martinez is one of, if not the biggest name still available on the free agent market and despite rumored interest from the Boston Red Sox, Martinez’s market has been slow moving.

Martinez is willing to be patient in order to get the deal he is looking for and, according FanRag Sports’ Jon Heyman, he is willing to hold out even if it means the hold out will trickle in to spring training.

Martinez hit .303 with a career-high 45 home runs and 104 RBI last season for the Arizona Diamondbacks.

Martinez would bring a significant power boost to the Red Sox lineup and would do damage in Fenway Park.
