BOSTON (WBZ-AM) -- The Red Sox got their slugger! J.D. Martinez--5 years, 110 million.
Jackie Bradley Jr. told WBZ's Jonny Miller he's ecstatic.
"It's amazing," he said. "You take a guy who's an elite hitter, put him in a lineup, any lineup at that, and he's pretty special. He's going to make everyone around him better."
Martinez hit .303 last year for the Tigers and Diamondbacks with 45 homers and 104 RBI.
David Price also spoke with Jonny about what Martinez should bring to Boston's lineup.
"To be able to hit the baseball to all fields the way that he did in the American League Central, which are, you know, a lot bigger ballparks than there are in the American League East, I think adding a hitter like J.D. is going to do a lot of good," he said.
Bradley thinks Martinez will thrive at Fenway.
"I think that he would do really well at Fenway," Bradley said. "He has a whole-field approach. That makes him a very dangerous hitter, and he obviously has power to all fields. He's not limited at all."
Martinez is a career .444 hitter in seven games in Boston, with an OPS over 1,000. That's included two doubles. No homers or RBI. Yet.
