REPORT: Red Sox Offer J.D. Martinez Five-Year Deal

According to multiple sources, the Red Sox have officially offered free-agent J.D. Martinez a five-year contract. The financial terms of the deal are not known, but the player's agent (Scott Boras) has been seeking a deal in the $200 million range—likely too steep for Red Sox honcho Dave Dombrowski. Nevertheless, it appears that Boston may be the only team with a concrete offer on the table as Spring Training looms just several weeks away. Stay closely tuned on this one—things could pop at any moment.
