It didn’t take long for Los Angeles Dodgers outfielder Mookie Betts to be questioned about his free agency plans, and specifically if the Boston Red Sox still could be included in them.

However, Betts deflected about the topic during his introductory press conference in Los Angeles on Wednesday.

“I love Boston, man,” Betts said, per The Boston Globe’s Julian McWilliams. “But I do know that it’s a business and I have to worry about 2020 right now and get to that point whenever it’s time.”

As you likely know by now, Betts was traded to the Dodgers along with David Price in a deal that was made official earlier this week. Betts is set to become a free agent after the 2020 season.

The former Boston star thanked Red Sox fans following his six years with the club.
