J.D. Martinez is reportedly holding out on the Red Sox and Diamondbacks

As signings continue to be few and far between this offseason (thanks for breaking up the monotony, Jay Bruce) everyone's eyes are still on the biggest free agents available for the taking. While the impasse has been clear for weeks now, it's not like any free agents or front offices have been standing by the side of Negotiation Highway with a huge sign that says “We're Holding Out! According to Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports, J.D. Martinez is willing to stay in a staring contest with the Red Sox and the Diamondbacks up to the start of (and possibly into) Spring Training. As Heyman reports, the Red Sox have extended a five-year offer to Martinez worth anywhere between $120 to $150 million in total value.
