The Boston Red Sox had a 2023 season to forget, finishing dead last in the AL East with a record of 78-84. Their 2024 season appears to be the same.


Taking a dive into their roster, one promising player is first baseman Triston Casas. Being one of the lone bright spots in the Boston lineup, Casas finished third in AL Rookie of the Year voting.


Casas indicated interest in a contract extension that would keep him in Boston past his years of club control, which expire in the 2028 season, prior to the 2023 campaign. 


He said at the time that there had been no such conversations with Red Sox brass, but in a press conference today, he adopted a different tone when speaking with reporters, including Ian Browne of MLB.com.


When asked if the parties have discussed an extension yet, Casas responded, "Of course we have," to reporters. While Casas aspires to remain a Red Sox player "forever," he added that as of right now, "nothing enticing" had been presented to him. 


When questioned about the kind of contract he might contemplate, Casas declined to go in detail, but he did say that he is looking for something that will set him and his family up for the rest of their lives.


Casas, 24, slashed .263/.367/.490 with 24 home runs. Casas is without question one of the main pieces of this young Red Sox club. He very well could be on his way to a long career in Boston.
