Xander Bogaerts contract extension looks poor compared to the newly signed Texas Ranger Corey Seager signed a massive $325 million dollar contract today.
It begs the question did the Red Sox’s get the Bogaerts cheap? Xander signed a six year $120 million dollar contract in 2019 and they got him at a major discount.
He has an opt out clause next season and he will be 30 years old still well into his prime. The question becomes what is Xander worth in comparison to Seager and even Marcus Semien.
Would have to think that Bogaerts has many options outside of the Red Sox’s and if he hits the open market I am sure he will get a major deal with someone..but will that be the Red Sox’s?
