Update On Contract Negotiations Between Red Sox And Superstar Player

He just turned twenty-six years old and will be arbitration-eligible for the final time this offseason before reaching free agency next year.

The Boston Red Sox need to re-sign Rafael Devers, there's no doubt about it.

So far, however, there are no active extension talks between the Red Sox and Devers, according to Chris Cotillo of MassLive.com. 
Cotillo also said that nothing is imminent in terms of a finalized long-term contract extension, but the Red Sox are definitely going to make a serious push to get a deal done sometime this offseason. 

As mentioned before, Devers is now twenty-six years old, still very young for a player of his talent, and the Red Sox have one more time to try and extend him before he becomes a free agent next year. 

Over the last two seasons, Devers has slashed a strong .287/.255/.530, with 65 home runs over 297 games. 

He's a generational talent for the Red Sox and they certainly don't want to lose him. However, there have been past reports of the club making lowball extension offers, leading to frustration between Devers and his camp, so the Red Sox will need to step it up and pay the man this time if they want to keep him around long-term.
