Boston Red Sox star Andrew Bailey is eagerly awaiting the offer of a 2014 contract ahead of Monday night's tender deadline, reports MLB.com.

The 29-year-old righthander has been plagued by injuries for a large proportion of his two-year stay at Fenway Park, and General manager Ben Cherington is now left with a difficult decision on whether or not to hand the former Oakland Athletics pitcher a new deal.

Bailey underwent shoulder surgery back in July and missed out as the Red Sox went on to win the World Series under John Farrell. He's not expected to make a full return to action until midway through the coming season.

After earning $4.1million in 2013, it remains to be seen whether Boston deem Bailey worthy of a new contract, given that he has only pitched in 49 games because of various injuries.

His 4.91 earned run average and 1.46 WHIP isn't exactly the most inspiring of statistics, and so it wouldn't be a surprise if Bailey isn't tendered a contract, and becomes a free agent.
