Here is the contract status of the Red Sox players who ended their season on the roster or on the disabled list:

UNDER CONTRACT
RHP Clay Buchholz (through 2015, team options for '16 and '17)
RHP John Lackey (though 2014, team option for '15)
LHP Jon Lester (through 2013, team option for '14)
2B Dustin Pedroia (though 2014, team option for '15)

Notes: John Lackey ($15.25 million the next two seasons) is the highest-paid Red Sox player at the moment. That tells you everything you need to know about the state of things. ... Lester, to at least some degree, is pitching for a contract in 2013. His 2014 option is worth $13 million.

ARBITRATION ELIGIBLE
(Must be offered a contract by Dec. 2)
RHP Alfredo Aceves
RHP Scott Atchison
RHP Andrew Bailey
RHP Daniel Bard
LHP Craig Breslow
OF Jacoby Ellsbury
LHP Rich Hill
LHP Andrew Miller
LHP Franklin Morales
C Jarrod Saltalamacchia
OF Ryan Sweeney

Notes: Ellsbury made $8.05 million last season and will get a raise despite playing only 74 games and posting a .682 OPS. ... Several of these players could be non-tendered or traded before the Dec. 2 deadline.

FREE AGENTS
RHP Aaron Cook
1B James Loney
RHP Daisuke Matsuzaka
DH David Ortiz
RHP Vicente Padilla
OF Scott Podsednik
OF Cody Ross

Notes: The Sox are moving close to a deal with Ortiz. Ross said on Wednesday that nothing had changed in his situation. The rest are sure to get into the market after the World Series. Best of luck, Daisuke.

UNDER TEAM CONTROL
(0-3 years of service time)
RHP Pedro Beato
RHP Chris Carpenter
RHP David Carpenter
INF Pedro Ciriaco
INF Ivan DeJesus Jr.
LHP Felix Doubront
INF Mauro Gomez
SS Jose Iglesias
OF Ryan Kalish
C Ryan Lavarnway
RHP Mark Melancon
3B Will Middlebrooks
RHP Clay Mortensen
OF Daniel Nava
RHP Zach Stewart
RHP Junichi Tazawa
INF Danny Valencia

Notes: The Major League minimum is $490,000 for 2013. These players can be renewed at that number or higher depending on their service time. There are several candidates to be released if 40-man roster spots are needed.
