Report: Red Sox Reportedly In ‘Advanced Talks’ On Contract Extension With Key Player



Brayan Bello has emerged as a key starting pitcher for the Boston Red Sox, and it appears that the team is eager to secure his services for the long term.

Recent reports suggest that Bello and the Red Sox are in advanced discussions regarding a potential long-term contract extension. If finalized, this extension would keep Bello with the Red Sox beyond 2028, potentially securing his future with the team for several more years.

Bello, who made his debut with the Red Sox in 2022, has demonstrated considerable potential and talent over his two seasons with the team. While he faced some challenges during his rookie year, he showcased significant improvement in his sophomore season. In 2023, Bello started 28 games, compiling a 12-11 record with a 4.24 ERA and 1.338 WHIP. He also recorded 132 strikeouts across 157 innings pitched.

Originally signed by the Red Sox as an international free agent from the Dominican Republic in 2017, Bello has progressed rapidly through Boston’s minor league system to become a major league starter. With his performance and potential, he is even being considered as a candidate for the team’s Opening Day starter role against the Seattle Mariners on March 28.

The specifics of the contract extension have not been disclosed, but the discussions indicate the Red Sox’s commitment to retaining Bello as a key part of their pitching rotation for years to come.
