Earlier this week the Rays exercised their $6.5 million club option for outfielder David DeJesus and were said to be working on a multi-year extension by Jon Heyman of CBSSports.com. The two sides have since agreed to new two-year contract with an option for a third year, reports Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times. Ken Rosenthal of Fox Sports says the deal is worth $10.5 million.
“I’m excited to be a Ray again,” said DeJesus to Topkin after confirming the new agreement. The deal covers the 2014-15 seasons with the option for 2016.
