Agent Scott Boras has set an asking price of $210 million over a seven-year deal for outfielder J.D. Martinez, reports Bob Nightengale of USA Today Sports.
Teams were already under the impression that Boras would seek top dollar for Martinez - one of, if not the most coveted asset on the open market.
The 30-year-old Martinez is coming off an incredible season split between the Detroit Tigers and Arizona Diamondbacks in which he hit .303/.376/.690 for a remarkable 1.066 OPS across 119 games.
Boras will be involved in some of this offseason's most expensive signings, as he also represents free agents Eric Hosmer, Jake Arrieta, and Mike Moustakas.
