The return of Eduardo Nunez (right) shouldn't impact Red Sox's ability to sign J.D. Martinez. Nunez is guaranteed $6 million ($4M this year, $2M buyout next year) and possibly more than $8 million if he exercises a $4M player option for 2019 and reaches various incentives. But for luxury tax purposes, Nunez will cost Red Sox $4 million this year, likely leaving them flexible to sign Martinez and stay below the $237M threshold that triggers draft pick penalties.

He's coming off a 1.7-WAR season.
