Breaking News:David Price signs with Red Sox
BOSTON - The Red Sox have agreed to a seven-year, $217 million contract with free-agent pitcher David Price, The Boston Globe reported on Tuesday. The club has not confirmed the deal.
The contract would be the largest ever for a pitcher, narrowly topping Clayton Kershaw $215 million extension with the Dodgers and the $210 million deal Max Scherer signed with the Nationals last off-season.
Price went 18-5 with a 2.45 ERA in 32 starts for the Tigers and Blue Jays last season. The 30-year-old left-hander, the 2012 American League Cy Young Award winner with the Rays, is 104-56 with a 3.09 ERA over eight seasons, making five All-Star teams.
The deal includes an opt-out clause after three years, according to FOX Sports.
