MLB Rumors: Red Sox DH Open To Extension

While speaking with reporters, Boston Red Sox star J.D. Martinez said that he is very open to the idea of signing an extension with the club.

Martinez is in the final year of his contract and is one of the few Red Sox hitters having a good season. In 29 games, he has five home runs, 19 RBIs, and a .333 batting average. However, he also noted that Boston hasn't engaged in extension talks with him.

With the Red Sox having an abysmal season, they are expected to be sellers at the trade deadline. This could lead them to move Martinez, but if the veteran has his way, he will remain with the Red Sox for many more seasons.
