Dodgers Offseason Signing To Be Team's Full-Time DH This Season

He signed a one-year, $10 million contract with the Los Angeles Dodgers in December.

According to manager Dave Roberts, J.D. Martinez will be the Dodgers' full-time designated hitter this season.

J.D. Martinez has landed in a very promising spot to reignite his career, possibly the best situation in the league for him, as he joins the already stacked lineup of the Los Angeles Dodgers.

Despite his underwhelming performance during the second half of the last season with the Boston Red Sox, the 35-year-old veteran slugger will have a chance for a notable bounce-back season in Los Angeles.

In addition, Martinez has the added advantage of working with Robert Van Scoyoc, his former private hitting coach who is currently the Dodgers hitting coach, as well as his former teammate Mookie Betts, all good signs of a potential reclamation season.

Martinez still slashed a solid .274/.341/.448 line last season, however like many others, he struggled with power last season, hitting just 16 home runs, 62 RBIs and 76 runs scored over 139 games played.

It'll be exciting to see how Martinez fares with his new team. He's spent the last five seasons with the Red Sox. Photo Credit:  Orlando Ramirez-USA TODAY Sports
