Red Sox, Pedroia Agree On Extension

The Boston Red Sox and Dustin Pedroia have agreed in principle on an extension worth approximately $100M over seven years, tweets Rob Bradford of WEEI.

Prior to this agreement, Pedroia was on a contract that paid him $10MM in 2013 and 2014 with a team-friendly club option for $11MM in 2015. The fresh contract will start after Pedroia’s final guaranteed year under the previous deal, which was signed in December 2008.

In 449 plate appearances this season, Pedroia is slashing .308/.385/.422 with six home runs. For his career, the four-time All-Star owns a career slash line of .303/.371/.457. In addition to his bat, Pedroia delivers plenty of value with his glove, as he’s consistently among the best fielding second basemen in the game.
