Red Sox hold press conference to officially announce JD Martinez signing

Yankees GM Brian Cashman appeared to reignite it previous year, comparing the Red Sox to the Golden State Warriors after they added Chris Sale to their rotation.

The Boston Red Sox will finally introduce J.D. Martinez as a member of the club on Monday. "So (Martinez) actually did fly to Boston at one time to be checked out there because we just didn't have all the doctors here that we needed".

The other big news to come from the presser concerned the contract's hold-up.

Nick Cafardo of The Boston Globe reports that the Red Sox had concerns about Martinez's foot.

NZ skipper Kane Williamson in doubt for second England ODI through injury
New Zealand skipper Kane Williamson is a doubtful starter for the second One-Day International against England following a hamstring injury.

To recap: the opt-outs do matter; the injury protection stuff does not - not unless something weird happens. "Last year I remember I asked him what was different".

Martinez hit 45 home runs and drove in 104 runs in 119 games last season split with the Detroit Tigers and Arizona Diamondbacks.

"He's not only a home run hitter, he's a complete hitter", Cora said. The Red Sox watched the rival Yankees add Giancarlo Stanton to a batting order that already included Aaron Judge, creating arguably the best power-hitting duo in recent memory. We not only got better lineup-wise and on the field, what he brings in that clubhouse, the way he prepares, I'm looking forward for him to connect with young players, help the young players. He has expressed an interest in continuing to play in the outfield, but MLB.com's Ian Browne says he will get a majority of his playing time as a DH with the Red Sox. "That's our goal at the end of the day - getting prepared for the game".
