David Price has reached an agreement on a seven-year, $217 million deal with the Boston Red Sox, according to The Boston Globe, which cited a source.
The left-hander was 18-5 with an AL-leading 2.45 ERA last season with the Detroit Tigers and Toronto Blue Jays. He was second in the AL in pitching WAR at 6.0 in 2015.
Acquired by the Blue Jays at the trade deadline, Price went 9-1 with a 2.30 ERA in the regular season for Toronto. The postseason was a different story, however, as a ghastly 6.17 ERA was coupled with a 1-2 mark in the Blue Jays' first playoff appearance since 1993.
Price spent the first six seasons of his career with the Tampa Bay Rays, including a Cy Young year in 2012. The Rays dealt him to Detroit in 2014.
Price went 13-8 in 32 regular-season starts with the Tigers over parts of two seasons, but he failed to be the final piece in bringing a World Series title to Detroit.
