|Brayan Bello says extension talks with Red Sox are ongoing, may be heating up. On Sunday, Triston Casas told reporters that despite the Red Sox having approached him for early extension talks, the team had yet to present anything enticing enough for him to consider.

Asked if a deal was indeed close, Bello (through translator Carlos Villoria Benítez), responded “mas o menos” — which translates to “more or less” or “maybe” in English. Bello's hopefulness was evident during the conversation even if details were scarce.
