Tigers re-sign JD Martinez (2y/18.5m)

The Tigers avoided arbitration with RF JD Martinez by extending his contract for two years. According to this article, Martinez will receive $ 6.75m this season and $ 11.75 in 2017. This salary allocation may have been chosen with the luxury tax looming this year for Detroit, but I do not see them saving much salary next year. Since Martinez very likely would have been awarded $ 8m for this year (the Tigers filed for $ 6m), the extension is effectively for $10.5m, which seems quite moderate.

While I was valiantly trying to find out, how to embed tweets, I found hard evidence: JD Martinez did really everything to endear himself to the most important Tiger himself...

Love it. Amazing value for Detroit, could potentially hit 40+ HR next year at a paltry 6.5M.

This is pretty much market rate. Maybe saving like 4-5 million at best.

This seems to be accurate. The Tigers dodge an $ 8m arbitration award this year (thus saving $ 1.5m) and probably some $ 13m award next year. For a team hell bent on breaking the luxury tax threshold, savings are even more valuable.
