Red Sox, Mookie Betts Haven't Had Extension Talks

The Boston Red Sox haven't engaged outfielder Mookie Betts in contract-extension talks yet this winter, according to chief executive officer Sam Kennedy. It'll be interesting to see what the Red Sox do with Betts as they attempt to get under the luxury tax threshold in 2020. Things became more difficult when outfielder J.D. Martinez chose not to opt out of his current deal. Betts is surely worth the money, but the BoSox will be looking to shed payroll this offseason. A trade could be possible. The 27-year-old hit .295/.391/.524 with 29 home runs, 135 runs, 80 RBI and 16 stolen bases in 2019. He is one of the best players in baseball and will be in consideration for the top overall pick in fantasy.

J.D. Martinez Doesn't Opt Out Of Deal

Boston Red Sox outfielder/designated hitter J.D. Martinez chose not to opt out of his contract with the team, so he can earn $62.5 million over the next three years: $23.75 million for 2020 and $19.375 million for both 2021 and 2022. As long as he doesn't have a lengthy stay on the injured list, Martinez has the option to opt out after each of the next two years. He has led the league in home runs with 124 and is second in baseball in RBI at 339 over the last three years. Martinez has hit .313 with a .619 slugging percentage and 1.007 OPS as one of the better overall fantasy assets in a strong Boston lineup. Boston had the highest payroll in baseball ($243 million) last year and are looking to get below the luxury tax threshold.

Mookie Betts Will Play in Season Finale

Boston Red Sox outfielder Mookie Betts (foot) is in the starting lineup for Sunday's season finale against the Baltimore Orioles. Betts has been dealing with soreness in his left foot for most of the month. It's not a serious injury, so Betts shouldn't require offseason surgery. He will leadoff and play right field versus righty Chandler Shepherd. Betts will continue to be a great DFS option despite his foot issues.

Andrew Benintendi is Out of the Lineup Sunday

Boston Red Sox outfielder Andrew Benintendi (rest) is out of the starting lineup for Sunday's game against the Baltimore Orioles. Benintendi has been dealing with a thumb injury, so he might be resting because of that. Gorkys Hernandez will play left field and bat eighth versus righty Chandler Shepherd. Hernandez doesn't have any upside with the bat and can be ignored.

Mookie Betts is Out of the Lineup for Saturday

Boston Red Sox outfielder Mookie Betts (foot) is out of the starting lineup for Saturday's game against the Baltimore Orioles. Betts has been battling a left foot issue lately, so it's not surprising to see him getting a day off. The Red Sox are already eliminated, so there is no need for them to play their starters. Gorkys Hernandez will cover right field and bat seventh versus lefty John Means. Hernandez doesn't have much upside with the bat and can be ignored here.
