Boston Red Sox manager Alex Cora is in the final year of his contract, and he’s not offering much clarity about his future.

Cora recently discussed his contract status, stating he has no plans to negotiate a new deal during the season. This has fueled speculation that Cora might explore the market this offseason. When asked directly about this possibility, he was notably non-committal.

“My intent is to manage today, and then keep helping this team to be better,” Cora said, according to Jen McCaffrey of The Athletic. “I think we have something good going on as far as developing players, and it’s a challenge right now, of course with all the injuries, but I feel really good where I’m at. I feel really good where I’m at in my personal life, which is the most important thing. I love the Red Sox, but the Cora-Feliciano team is my No. 1 team, and we’re good where we’re at.”

While Cora appears content with the Red Sox, he’s also likely in line for a significant payday, especially if multiple teams have the chance to bid for him.

Cora has won a World Series with Boston, and the organization rehired him after initially firing him for his role in the Houston Astros sign-stealing scandal. Despite this positive history, the Red Sox are seemingly preparing for the possibility of needing to replace him.
