J.D. Martinez will remain with the Boston Red Sox after exercising his player option worth $19.35 million for the 2021 season, per Jon Heyman of MLB Network. 

The 33-year-old is also set to make $19.35 in 2022 but can opt out and become a free agent after next season.

The outfielder and designated hitter is coming off a disappointing 2020 after setting a career low with a .213 batting average. He also had just seven home runs in 54 games to go with a .291 on-base percentage.

Despite the struggles during the shortened season, Martinez has proved to be an elite hitter at his best, earning All-Star selections in 2018 and 2019.
