    Boston Red Sox Transactions 2018

    Red Sox signed INF Ivan DeJesus Jr. to a minor league contract.

    DeJesus spent the entire 2017 season with the Triple-A affiliate of the Brewers, posting an impressive .345/.407/.488 batting line with seven home runs and 65 RBI in 112 games. He played eight games with the Red Sox back in 2012 after being acquired as part of the Adrian Gonzalez trade.

    Not technically a Red Sox transaction but...

    Daniel Bard has retired from baseball.

    Bard was a first-round pick of the Red Sox back in 2006 and he pitched well out of Boston's bullpen over his first three major league seasons (2009-2011), but the 32-year-old right-hander's last appearance at baseball's highest level came in 2013. He allowed 14 earned runs in 9 1/3 innings between minor league affiliates of the Cardinals and Mets in 2017.

    Red Sox and RHP Carson Smith avoided arbitration by agreeing to a one-year, $850,000 contract.

    Smith returned from Tommy John reconstructive elbow surgery late last season and posted a sharp 1.35 ERA in eight relief appearances before working 1 1/3 scoreless innings in the ALDS against the Astros. He'll work in a setup role in 2018 in front of Red Sox closer Craig Kimbrel.

    Depth signing alert

    Red Sox signed C Oscar Hernandez to a minor league contract with an invitation to spring training.

    Hernandez spent all of last season at Double-A in the Diamondbacks organization, hitting only .197/.257/.348 over 255 plate appearances. The former Rule 5 pick is merely a depth guy.

    ICYMI, the Sox signed like half their team over the weekend.

    Red Sox and C Christian Vazquez avoided arbitration by agreeing to a one-year, $1.425 million contract.

    Vazquez was arbitration-eligible for the first time. The young catcher sported a .290/.330/.404 batting line with five home runs last season.
    Red Sox and SS Xander Bogaerts avoided arbitration by agreeing to a one-year, $7.05 million contract.

    Bogaerts was eligible for arbitration for the second time this offseason. The young shortstop hit a disappointing .273/.343/.403 in 2017 while playing through a hand injury.
    Red Sox and LHP Eduardo Rodriguez avoided arbitration by agreeing to a one-year, $2.375 million contract.

    Rodriguez was eligible for arbitration for the first time as a Super 2 qualifier. The southpaw held a 4.19 ERA across 137 1/3 innings in 2017 and will get a late start to 2018 following October knee surgery.
    Red Sox and C Sandy Leon avoided arbitration by agreeing to a one-year, $1.95 million contract.

    It's the first time he's been eligible for arbitration. Leon put up a .225/.290/.354 batting line with seven longballs last season.
    Red Sox and RHP Brandon Workman avoided arbitration by agreeing to a one-year, $835,000 contract.

    It's the righty's first year of arbitration eligibility. Workman held a 3.18 ERA over 33 relief appearances for Boston in 2017.
    Red Sox and LHP Drew Pomeranz avoided arbitration by agreeing to a one-year, $8.5 million contract.

    It's Pomeranz's final year of arbitration eligibility. The left-hander posted a 3.32 ERA across 32 starts for the Red Sox last season.
    Red Sox and INF/OF Brock Holt avoided arbitration by agreeing to a one-year, $2.225 million contract.

    It's Holt's second year of arbitration eligibility. He hit .200/.305/.243 in 2017 over 64 games in a season shortened by concussion and vertigo issues.
    Red Sox and RHP Joe Kelly avoided arbitration by agreeing to a one-year, $3.825 million contract.

    Kelly was in his final year of arbitration eligibility. He put up a 2.79 ERA across 54 relief appearances last season.

    All pretty standard. Vazquez might be the best deal of the bunch.
    I am not a con artist! I am a businessman! I have a big brain and I'm good at making deals! People are just jealous of my BIG BRAIN! BAD!

    Guess who? The future X-Presdent...

    According to Buster Olney of ESPN, Boston's five-year offer to J.D. Martinez is worth "in the range of" $100 million.
    That explains why the marriage hasn't happened yet, as Martinez and his agent Scott Boras are said to be looking for a seven-year contract worth between $180 million and $210 million. There's talk that the 30-year-old free agent slugger might hold out into spring training to get closer to what he wants financially. Martinez batted .303/.376/.690 with 45 home runs and 104 RBI in 119 games last season between the Tigers and Diamondbacks.
