Salty: Haven't talked contract with Sox

BOSTON -- Red Sox catcher Jarrod Saltalamacchia doesn’t know what his future holds in Boston. In the final three games of the Series against the St. Louis Cardinals, the free-agent catcher was on the bench as fellow catcher David Ross was in the starting lineup.

Prior to the rolling rally around the city, Saltalamacchia was asked if he’s spoken with general manager Ben Cherington about his future with the Red Sox.

“No,” he said. “I’ve been enjoying this and I’m assuming things will pick up here soon, but I haven’t heard anything from Ben.

“This is a great place to play and it’s been home for me the last three, four years,” he said. “Things are going to work out the way they’re going to work out. We’ll have to sit and wait and see.”
