The Red Sox reportedly have an offer on the table for free agent slugger J.D. Martinez.

According to USA Today's Bob Nightengale, Boston's offer to Martinez is a five-year contract. However, the 30-year-old outfielder has been said to be looking for a seven-year deal worth upwards of $210 million.

Nightengale notes,  "The Red Sox won't give Martinez a seven-year, $210 million contract and aren't about to start bidding against themselves," so it appears Boston and the Scott Boras client are still reasonably far apart on an agreement.

Martinez played for the Tigers in 2017 before being traded in July to the Diamondbacks. He totaled 45 home runs and 104 runs batted in while hitting .303.
