The Boston Red Sox have a lot of work to do in this very important offseason, and one of the biggest items on their to-do list involves signing star third baseman Rafael Devers to a long-term extension. While a deal doesn’t appear to be imminent, it does sound like progress is being made between the two sides.

Initial reports made it sound like the Red Sox were far off in their attempts to extend Devers, but it sounds like the gap is being bridged by Boston’s front office. Rumors have come out saying that Devers wants to earn a $300 million deal, and the Sox have been slowly creeping towards that number. Despite that, there still appears to be a sizable gap between the two parties.
