David Ortiz DH BOS 1 Month

According to Rob Bradford of WEEI, the Red Sox have signed David Ortiz to a one-year, $16 million extension.

The deal is for 2015, as Ortiz was already under contract at $15 million for the upcoming season. He made it known after helping the Red Sox to the 2013 World Series title that he wanted his contract extended, and the Boston front office obliged eight days before leaving Florida. Ortiz, 38, slugged 30 home runs and tallied 103 RBI in 137 games last year before lighting it up in the playoffs.

Sean McAdam of CSNNE.com reports that the Red Sox could complete a one-year contract extension with David Ortiz over the weekend that's "in the neighborhood" of $15 million.

That's what Ortiz will make this season, but he's gone on the record as wanting his deal extended for another season. Ortiz, who turned 38 over the winter, wants to finish his career with the Red Sox. The DH batted .309/.395/.564 with 30 homers and 103 RBI last season for the Red Sox before going on to win World Series MVP honors.

Gordon Edes of ESPNBoston.com reports that there is "little doubt" the Red Sox will sign David Ortiz to an extension, and an agreement could be announced "in the next few days."

Red Sox owner John Henry and Ortiz's agent, Fernando Cuza, are both in Fort Myers, Florida at the team's spring training complex, and the thinking is that discussing a new deal for Big Papi is one of the items on the agenda. Ortiz will make $15 million in the final year of his current deal but is reportedly wanting another $15 million for 2015, which is a perfectly reasonable request. The Red Sox could also tack on an option year.

John Tomase of the Boston Herald reports that the Red Sox and David Ortiz have opened discussions regarding a contract extension.

Ortiz will make $15 million in the final year of his current deal but went on record last month saying that he wanted to tack on another $15 million for 2015. It appears the Red Sox are willing to oblige him and could possibly add on a vesting option for 2016 or just make it a straight two-year extension. Either way, it would be a surprise if Big Papi doesn't retire in a Red Sox uniform. "As you guys know, we prefer not to talk about these things or to get into details of those talks publicly," general manager Ben Cherington said. "David's a very important guy. We all know that. Certain guys earn the right to have a hearing and the conversation. He's certainly one of them."

Red Sox owner John Henry said Wednesday that an extension for David Ortiz is "conceivable."

Ortiz, who is entering the final year of his contract, recently told reporters that he is looking for a one-year extension. Henry appears amenable to his demands, though he still thinks the 38-year-old could finish his career with the Red Sox even if an extension isn't done right now.

David Ortiz is looking for a one-year extension on his current contract, he said in a discussion with WEEI.com's Rob Bradford.

"We're good. We talked, they're talking and I just asked for one year. I didn't ask for anything crazy. It wasn't like I asked for a five-year deal. It's a one-year extension I asked for," Ortiz said of his discussions with the club. In the same conversation the 38-year-old said talks with the club have been "great." It was reported earlier in the week that Ortiz was unhappy with the team's hesitation to offer a long-term contract, but the designated hitter is trying to squash those notions. His current contract expires after the 2014 season.

David Ortiz said it would be "time to move on" if Boston doesn't offer a long-term contract.

Ortiz wants to retire as a member of the Red Sox, but desires a long-term deal more. "Hey, I would like to," Ortiz said. "I'm having fun. It's been a hell of a ride as long as I've been here. But as I always keep on telling people, this is a business. Sometimes you've got to do what's best for you and your family." Ortiz, who reached 2,000 hits last season, has one year remaining on the two-year extension he signed last winter. Last year Ortiz blasted 30 homers and drove in over 100 runs for the first time since 2010.

Red Sox general manager Ben Cherington confirmed Thursday that the team plans to continue discussions with David Ortiz on a contract extension.

The team and the veteran slugger have already opened dialogue on a potential extension, and Cherington noted that the discussions would continue throughout the upcoming season if necessary. The 38-year-old, who is in the final year of his contract, has already admitted his desire to get a deal done before the season begins, and it's very likely that the two sides iron something out in the coming months.

Rob Bradford of WEEI.com reports that the Red Sox and David Ortiz are having discussions Friday about extending the designated hitter's contract through 2015.

Ortiz will be paid $15 million next season before hitting free agency, but the Red Sox want to make sure he never hits the open market. The veteran DH turned 38 last month, but he appears to have more left in the tank after batting .309/.395/.564 with 30 homers and 103 in 2013 before winning the World Series MVP.

David Ortiz was named the World Series MVP after Wednesday's Game 6 victory.

All Ortiz did in the series was hit .688/.760/1.188 with two home runs, six RBI and seven runs scored. Wednesday's game was his first in the series without a hit, largely because the Cardinals finally gave in and walked the big man four times. He may be 37 years old, but Big Papi is proving he can still rake.
