Welcome, JD: Red Sox not worried about making room in lineup

FORT MYERS, Fla. (AP) The Boston Red Sox didn't commit $110 million for J.D. Martinez to be a part-timer.

When he lands in the middle of the order, some of the everyday hitters will have to get used to fewer at-bats each week. New manager Alex Cora must navigate the complexities of lineup construction and defensive arrangements while watching for streaks and slumps and maintaining a harmonious and engaged clubhouse.

Ah, what good problems to have. The Red Sox were more than ready for the arrival of Martinez and his 45 home runs in 119 games last season, no matter the minor complications of making room for him.
