Right-hander Brayan Bello and the Boston Red Sox are in agreement on a six-year, $55 million contract extension that includes a seventh-year club option for $21 million, per Kiley McDaniel of ESPN.


Bello, 24, reaches an extension with the club he’s been with since 2017, when the signed him as an international free agent. Since his debut in 2022, Bello has compiled a 4.37 ERA in 41 games across 39 starts. He holds the one are that the Red Sox have not been able to develop, which is young talent for the rotation.


Bello is without a doubt one of the rising star pitchers in the game in regards of talent and potential. Bello finished his first full season in 2023 and became the first Red Sox pitcher since Roger Clemens in 1987 to lead the club’s pitching staff in starts (28), innings (157.0), and wins (12) in an age-24 season or younger (via MLB.com).


This is obviously a big move for Boston, a club that went light in the offseason. Extending key pieces in their rebuild is exactly what the Red Sox need. As they proceed with this rebuild, building around Devers, Bello, and Casas gives them a great start into what’s to come next in their future.
