Red Sox Offer Dustin Pedroia $20 million a year

According to a major league source, the Boston Red Sox made a formal offer to Dustin Pedroia and his New York-based agents, Sam and Seth Levinson, over the All-Star break in New York, where Pedroia coincidentally replaced Cano in the American League lineup after the Yankees second baseman was struck by a pitch.

Yahoo! Sports reported the deal could be in the $100 million range and average more than $20 million a year, which by annual average value would make Pedroia the highest-paid middle infielder in the game’s history, eclipsing the $18.9 million per-year average Yankees shortstop Derek Jeter had in the 10-year, $189 million deal he signed in 2001.
