Jennings: Chilling effect on Red Sox offseason may be coming from NEXT winter

Most of the Red Sox roster is under team control without any long-term commitment from the organization. The team currently has just eight players signed to long-term deals. They range from a staff ace to a platoon first baseman to a minor league outfielder.

Here’s a breakdown:

David Price

Terms: Seven years, $217 million

Time frame: 2016-22, opt out after 2018

Skinny: Dave Dombrowski’s biggest financial splash as president of baseball operations was the richest contract ever given to a pitcher.

Dustin Pedroia

Terms: Eight years, $110 million

Time frame: 2014-21

Skinny: Pedroia was already under contract for 2014 and ’15 when the team signed him to a fresh extension through his 38th birthday.
