With a lot of talent around the diamond, the Red Sox lacked power in 2017. Martinez might settle for a little more than $100 million in guaranteed money from the Red Sox. Despite winning the AL East past year, the Red Sox hit the fewest home runs in the American League last season.

SARASOTA, Fla. - A person familiar with the negotiations says pitcher Chris Tillman and the Baltimore Orioles have agreed to a $3 million, one-year contract.

Gomez tweeted that according to a "reliable source" the contract is a five-year deal that Martinez can opt out of after two years.

Gennett hit.295 previous year and set career bests with 27 homers and 97 RBIs in his first season with the Reds.

The way it works out, however, certainly seems like a steal for the Red Sox.

In an offseason in which the Yankees have added 59-homer Giancarlo Stanton, Boston is "close" to inking a deal with 45-homer J.D. Martinez, The Post's Joel Sherman reported.

With a remastered swing, Martinez hit.315 with 23 homers in just 480 plate appearances in '14, and since joining the Tigers ranks seventh in the majors with a.936 OPS and sixth with 128 homers.

From 2014-17, Martinez hit 128 home runs in 520 games, averaging 40 home runs and 110 RBIs per 162 games played. Martinez had a big half-season with Arizona past year after being traded from Detroit, and the Diamondbacks were hopeful they could work out some sort of agreement to bring him back.

Humble Hull City exit FA Cup
Despite a great individual effort, the 29-year-old must produce the goods on a more consistent basis. They punished Hull's nerves without mercy, claiming all four goals in a ruthless first-half showing.

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

Martinez should slot in nicely as the team's cleanup hitter.

As for the roster fit, the cramped left field dimensions at Fenway make for a nice way to hide Martinez's lack of range in the outfield. Here's a potential look at what their lineup could look like on Opening Day, according to Boston Globe reporter Pete Abraham. With the other teams in the American League, most notably the Yankees, improving this offseason, the Red Sox needed Martinez, and they finally got him.

But the Red Sox need his bat in the lineup.
