Xander Bogaerts will become a free agent after the 2019 season if he does not sign a contract extension with the Boston Red Sox beforehand.
Bogaerts, on Friday, told reporters that he enjoyed his stay in Boston and that he would not hesitate to sign an extension with the Sox.
"I mean sure, I appreciate my time here," said Bogaerts transcribed by WEEI.com. "We have something special right now for two years, and I think I've been part of it from the beginning. The Red Sox treated my family and I incredibly well. We'll see what happens."
The free agent market has been very active over the last two years and Bogaerts has admitted to being shocked that Bryce Harper and Manny Machado have not yet signed up with a team.
The shortstop had a batting average of .288 last season with 23 innings, 148 hits and 103 runs.
