2018 FANTASY BASEBALL HOT STOVE SIGNINGS: J.D. MARTINEZ FINALLY LANDS IN BOSTON

After week of back-and-forth discussing that sometimes turned nasty, the Boston Red Sox and free agent outfielder J.D. Martinez finally came to an agreement on a deal late Monday.  Martinez gets well over $100 million in the deal but the exact figure is not yet known at this point.  In terms of fantasy baseball, Martinez re-solidified his OF 1 standing in signing into one of the best offensive parks in the game.  He comes off a ridiculous 2017 campaign where Martinez slammed 45 home runs and collected 108 RBI in just 489 at-bats last season.  Reaching the 40-home run mark is very much in play again for Martinez this season and he should find his name being called in the third round of most mixers this spring.  Still in his prime at the age of 30, Martinez is a firm four-category producer (HR, RBI, R, average) in fantasy baseball 2018 and his being released by the Houston Astros a few years ago remains one of the more ridiculed moves in recent MLB history.
