Brayan Bello says he hasn’t discussed a contract extension with the Red Sox yet but would “love” to stay in Boston, according to

“I’m not sure if they have talked to my lawyers. That’s their job and I haven’t spoken to them about anything like that,” Bello told WEEI. “I would love it. I love this organization. I would love to stay here, but I haven’t really given it much thought.”

According to Spotrac, Bello is on a 1-year $729,500 deal with the Red Sox. The 24-year-old righthander is 6-5 this season with a 3.04 ERA. He’s made 25 starts over two seasons with the Red Sox.


WEEI’s Rob Bradford noted that Bello has more MLB service time than other young players who have signed multi-year extensions, including Atlanta’s Michael Harris and Tampa Bay’s Wander Franco.

“That is definitely something on my mind, but there are a lot of factors that go into those kind of decisions,” Bello said. “I do see (extensions have) been happening a lot.”
