The Red Sox have not yet engaged in contract talks with Mookie Betts this offseason, team president and CEO Sam Kennedy said Wednesday.

“I’m sure we’ll have conversations at the appropriate time,” Kennedy said.

That news isn’t much of a surprise, as the Sox just hired new chief baseball officer Chaim Bloom less than 10 days ago and have just started their offseason planning. Betts is entering his final year under team control and is scheduled to hit free agency after the season.
