The Red Sox and Mookie Betts have agreed to a one-year, $27 million dollar contract that will avoid arbitration. Now the question is - will it be his last year in Boston?
ESPN's Jeff Passan is reporting the deal happened just before the 1pm deadline today.
The $27 million is a new record for arbitration.
Betts will be a free agent at the end of this 2020 season.
This story will be updated.
