Red Sox 'close' to making huge free-agent splash


The former Arizona Diamondbacks outfielder and one of the most prized free agents on the market has reached an agreement with the Boston Red Sox, according to multiple reports Monday.

The deal is for $110 million over five years, per Morosi.

Heyman reported that the 33-year-old Dyson will sign for $7.5 million over two years, or $3.75 million a year.

With Martinez likely entrenched in the DH spot, that leaves Hanley Ramirez and Mitch Moreland to share duties at first base. Here's a potential look at what their lineup could look like on Opening Day, according to Boston Globe reporter Pete Abraham. Martinez might play some in the outfield, but the Red Sox plan to use him mostly as a designated hitter.

Arizona was the other team considered to be in contention for Martinez' services after he hit.302 with a 1.107 OPS and 29 homers in 62 games with the Diamondbacks after being acquired from the Detroit Tigers in mid-July.




As soon as Giancarlo Stanton touched down with their main rivals, the Boston Red Sox were eager to take on NY - the Yankees, or maybe even the Jets and Giants.

Another Scott Boras client, Eric Hosmer, signed an eight-year, $144 million deal with the Padres this past weekend - which led to immediate speculation that a Martinez deal could be coming quick.

Needing just one more homer for that vaunted four-homer game, Martinez faced Wilmer Font in the ninth and etched his place in history.

The Red Sox went on to win their second straight division title. The point is you make space for a masher like Martinez, and the Sox will find a way. Jay finished past year batting.296 and started 86 games in the outfield for the Chicago Cubs. He batted.394 (41-for-104) with runners in scoring position between the two clubs, the majors' second-highest mark behind only Washington's Daniel Murphy (.409). But he can play all three outfield positions and should have an impact.

FORT MYERS, Fla. - Jake Odorizzi joined the Minnesota Twins just in time for their first full-squad workout of spring training.
