Dodgers, DH Martinez agree to 1-year contract 

On Saturday, the Los Angeles Dodgers and designated hitter J.D. Martinez reached an agreement on a $10 million, one-year contract, according to a person familiar with the negotiations.

The individual spoke with The Associated Press on the condition of anonymity because the relocation is pending a physical.

Martinez, 35, who can also play corner outfield, hit.274 with 16 home runs and 62 RBIs for Boston last season.

Martinez will reconnect with Mookie Betts, who was dealt from Boston to Los Angeles in February 2020.

Houston selected Martinez in the 20th round of the 2009 amateur draft. The five-time All-Star began his major league career with the Astros in 2011.

Martinez has a.288 batting average, 282 home runs, and 899 RBIs in 1,409 career games for four different organizations.

He had his greatest year with Boston in 2018, batting.330 with 43 home runs and 130 RBIs. He also hit.300 with three home runs and 14 RBIs in the postseason that year, helping the Red Sox win the World Series over the Dodgers.

Los Angeles finished 111-51 this season, winning the NL West for the ninth time in ten years. However, the Dodgers were defeated by the Padres in the National League Division Series.
