Dodgers News: RHP Chris Martin Signs Two-Year Deal With Red Sox

Former Dodger RHP Chris Martin has officially signed a two-year deal with the Boston Red Sox. The Dodgers’ 2022 trade deadline acquisition had an incredible second-half of the season, and turned that into $17.5 million over two years.

Martin was one of the Dodgers’ better relievers over the back half of the season. He had a 4.31 ERA in 34 games with the Cubs. Then, he met Mark Prior.

In 26 games with the Dodgers, Martin had a 1.46 ERA and a 0.53 WHIP. He struck out 34 batters in 24.2 innings, and recorded two saves. He recorded the Dodgers’ save in their Game 1 win in the NLDS.

Martin will be a big loss in the Dodgers’ bullpen, but they have more than enough talent to replace him. Dodger fans should be happy for Martin for revitalizing his career at 36 years old.

The Dodgers will reunite with Martin when they head to Fenway Park for a three-game series with the Red Sox on August 25-27. Congrats to Martin on the new deal and best of luck in Boston.

  1. Dodgers worth over $4BIL. Could’ve fooled me, they do most signings as Baltimore would. Btw, thanks Roberts, FO, for loosing out on another player.

  2. Too bad, another of Mark Prior’s hard work left to walk. Why? Martin, along with Phillips were the most trusted relievers after Treinen went down and the collapse of Kimbrel. After Prior and staff fixes a guy’s repertoire and flourishes, the Dodgers let him go. A 2yr @ 17.5M for a proven fireman/closer? Dodgers must be really thinking cheap.

  3. The team is slammed for dumpster-diving when they acquired him and now slammed for letting some other team pay him late in his career. Friedman finds 2 or 3 of these guys every year – what’s the big deal?
