Diamondbacks agree to terms with OF Dyson

New York Yankees' Aaron Judge and Giancarlo Stanton 927) stretch at baseball spring training camp Monday Feb. 19 2018 in Tampa Fla

ESPN's Pedro Gomez reported on Monday that Martinez has officially signed with the Red Sox.

The Associated Press has learned from a person with knowledge of the deal that 40-year-old reliever Joaquin Benoit and the Nationals have agreed in principle to a one-year, $1 million major league contract, pending a physical. He had a breakthrough season previous year, hitting.303 and setting career highs with 45 home runs and 104 RBIs for the Tigers and Diamondbacks.

J.D. Martinez #28 of the Arizona Diamondbacks reacts at the end of the eighth inning against the Los Angeles Dodgers in Game 1 of the National League Division Series at Dodger Stadium on October 6, 2017 in Los Angeles. The Red Sox were last in the American League in homeruns and 27th overall in the MLB in 2017.

Taking a little - OK, a lot - from Player's "Baby Come Back," Carlen put together a song to bring out the emotions of D-backs fans that, frankly, the original hit couldn't. After arriving in Arizona, Martinez hit 29 home runs and 13 doubles in 62 games.

The veteran, who played last season with the Seattle Mariners after playing the first seven seasons of his career with the Kansas City Royals, ranked fourth among all center fielders last season in defensive runs saved (10). We had significant pitching that was injured a year ago.

After an offseason of apparent frustration with teams' negotiating tactics and the offers he was being presented with, J.D. The 6-foot-6 Stanton joins a lineup with 6-7 Aaron Judge, the AL home run leader.

Four questions about the Ethiopian PM's resignation
Ethiopian Prime Minister Hailemariam Desalegn resigned on Thursday less than 24 hours after the resignation of Jacob Zuma as South Africa's President.

The Boston Red Sox are a relatively young team this season.

In 80 games from May 12 through the end of the 2017 season, Núñez batted.337 (114-for-338) with an.883 OPS.

With Martinez likely entrenched in the DH spot, that leaves Hanley Ramirez and Mitch Moreland to share duties at first base. Martinez definitely could help Boston in that category.

After the Red Sox were ousted in the ALDS for the second year in a row, ownership fired manager John Farrell and let go all but one member of his coaching staff (bullpen coach Dana LeVangie, whose contributions to the organization predated Farrell, was retained and promoted to pitching coach under new manager Alex Cora).

Clearly, the Red Sox haven't had much luck signing free agents to big deals over the past few seasons.

With the addition of Martinez, the Red Sox look to repeat as AL East champs in 2018.
