    • Martinez went 2-for-3 with three-run home run in Wednesday's spring game against the Tigers. The homer was Martinez's second of spring training and third extra-base knock in four hits. Entering his age-32 season, Martinez is still an elite and productive hitter.

    • Martinez will not exercise the opt-out in his contract, Jeff Passan of ESPN.com reports. Martinez evidently didn't feel as though he could make more than the $62.5 million he's due over the next three seasons on the open market. He remains an excellent hitter, but there's understandably some uncertainty about the market for a 32-year-old designated hitter. He has opt-outs remaining after each of the next two seasons, so there's still no guarantee he remains in Boston through the end of the 2022 season.

    • Martinez went 1-for-4 with a walk and a solo homer in Saturday's loss to Baltimore. The homer was Martinez's first in three full weeks, a rare drought for the veteran slugger. He'd hit just .255/.350/.294 in the 14 games since his previous home run. His .305/.383/.559 slash line on the season is still quite strong, but represents a significant drop-off from the .330/.402/.629 mark he recorded in 2018, especially considering how the league's overall offense has increased between the two seasons.

    • Martinez is not in the lineup Friday against Baltimore, Chris Cotillo of The Springfield Republican reports. Martinez has gone 10-for-21 with seven RBI over his last five games. Mookie Betts will return from a foot injury but only as a designated hitter Friday, bumping Martinez to the bench.

    • Martinez went 2-for-5 with three RBI and one run scored in Tuesday's 12-10 win over the Rangers. Martinez produced a run-scoring single in his first at-bat of the day before coming around to score in what was a four-run first inning for the Red Sox. He drove in two more runs with another single in the fifth inning, marking his fifth and sixth RBI over the past three games. Martinez is 6-for-13 (.462) with three runs scored and a 2:3 BB:K over that stretch.
