The Chicago White Sox agreed to terms with starting pitcher Jake Peavy, giving him a $29 million dollar two year extension. In addition to making a lot of money, he also won a Gold Glove award. The right-hander will receive $14.5 million each of the next two seasons. Peavy might receive a $15 million option in 2015, depending on the amount of innings he pitches during the next two years.
Peavy’s previous deal included a $22 million option for next season with a $4 million buyout. The buyout will be paid in equal installments from 2016-19. In other words he got a lot richer today, to complement his winning a Gold Glove award.
