Martinez eases into work on first full day of spring training

FORT MYERS, Fla. --  It will be another week before J.D. Martinez sees any game action with the Red Sox, but the newest member of the team spent Tuesday taking several rounds of batting practice and getting acclimated to his new surroundings.

“That’s the best part, just being around the guys and getting to know your teammates and stuff like that,’’ said Martinez. “You obviously hear about them, they hear about you, so just to get an understanding of everyone’s personalities and stuff like that, it’s cool.’’
