Red Sox May Want Restructuring Of J.D. Martinez Deal

According to multiple reports, a "medical issue" may have arisen during physical examinations of J.D. Martinez that has raised concerns about his long-term durability. Thus, based on these concerns, the Red Sox may be seeking a re-structuring of the five-year, $110 million terms of the yet un-signed contract. Reportedly, there is no concern with the current ability of Martinez to play at a high level—just the future. Of course, the Kremlin-like silence from Yawkey South has led to a raft of conspiracy theories surrounding the odd episode hasn't helped on that front. Stay tuned.
