Predictions for the Top 30 MLB Free Agents

JD Martinez

The fire-sale continues in Boston as the team has seemingly tried to rid itself of every player that helped win the 2018 World Series. The writing has been on the wall for JD Martinez to move on to a new club. Martinez was not extended a qualifying offer, and also did not long a single inning as a position player for the first time in his career. Boston’s designated hitter is coming off his worst (full) season in Bean Town, posting his lowest slugging percentage (.448) since 2013. He won’t struggle to find suitors, but the Padres are certainly one of the teams desperate to find a reliable bat for the heart of their lineup.

Prediction: San Diego Padres
