Rumor: J.D. Martinez's Future With Red Sox Gets a Pivotal Update

The Boston Red Sox ended up completing a total of five moves ahead of this year’s MLB trade deadline. They did ship off catcher Christian Vasquez to the Houston Astros, and while there was much speculation that the move would open up the floodgates for Boston to be sellers, this did not come to fruition. The Red Sox also elected to keep soon-to-be free agent slugger J.D. Martinez on the team past the Aug. 3 deadline.
