Red Sox Notebook

Jon Lester, Dustin Pedroia up for extensions?

FORT MYERS, Fla. — Jon Lester is signed through the end of the coming season, with the Red Sox holding a $13 million option for 2014. Dustin Pedroia has two more years left on his deal, with the team holding an $11 million option on 2015.

Both are 29, squarely in the primes of their careers. That makes them candidates for extensions, Lester more so than Pedroia given that he has one fewer year on his contract. The Sox have been aggressive about locking up their homegrown stars and willing to discuss terms in spring training. Might the same happen again?
