The Red Sox announced yesterday that they have signed all 2020 players on their 40-man roster.

This means they have contracts in place for all players heading in to the 2020 season and we can rest suggestions that Rafael Devers might be extended with a long-term deal.

Reported by Dawn Klemish on, Devers deal reported to be worth $692,500. It's a significant raise for the 23-year old third baseman, who slashed .311/.361/.555 with 32 homers, 54 doubles and 115 RBIs across 156 games in 2019.

The Red Sox agreed to contracts with 18 other players.

Contracts for everyone

Two other higher profile contracts were signed with Alex Verdugo and Michael Chavis.

Verdugo was acquired this Spring in the trade sending Mookie Betts to the Dodgers on Feb 10. He's an outfielder whom the Red Sox would like to slot in to right field, but has yet to play while on rehab from a stress fracture in his back. Verdugo inked a one year deal for $601,500.

Chavis had a good rookie season, hitting .254 average over 95 games and playing all around the diamond at several infield positions. He's been slow out the gate this Spring, but should end up spending his time roving the infield as needed. Chavis signed a contract for $571,000.

The rest of the signings are listed below, starting with pitchers:
The remaining pitching players signed are:
The Red Sox are ready for 2020 financially, now it's down to the remaining weeks in Spring Training to decide who to carry on the season opening roster.
