Report: Red Sox, Sale agree to 5-year extension

Report: Red Sox, Sale agree to 5-year extension The Boston Red Sox and Chris Sale reportedly agreed to a five-year extension Friday that will keep the left-hander in Beantown through the 2024 season, sources told Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic. Sale's deal is expected to be in the $150-million range, sources told ESPN's Jeff Passan. It will take effect following the conclusion of Sale's current contract, which will pay him $15 million in 2019. In two seasons with the Red Sox since being traded from the Chicago White Sox in a blockbuster involving Yoan Moncada and Michael Kopech, Sale posted a 2.56 ERA and 2.

The Sox ace on Friday reportedly agreed to a five-year extension that will keep him in Boston through the 2024 season.

Sale was set to hit free agency after the upcoming campaign, but in agreeing to the deal, he will avoid months of speculation and questions about his future.

Chris Sale, Red Sox are nearing agreement on a contract extension Chris Sale and the Red Sox are nearing agreement on a contract extension that will keep the star lefthander in Boston for years to come, according to a major league source. In two seasons in Boston, Sale has been the most dominant starting pitcher in baseball. In 59 starts, he’s 29-12 with a 2.56 ERA, 13.2 strikeouts per nine innings, and 1.9 walks per nine innings. He’s been the American League’s starting pitcher in the All-Star Game in both seasons.

With Sale signing the extension, the Sox now will have four of their five starters signed through at least 2021, with Price and Nathan Eovaldi locked in through 2022.

Friday evening, Price reacted to the news on Twitter.


"Well done Red Sox" is a sentiment shared by most of the team's fanbase at this moment, we're assuming.

CLEVELAND (AP) The Cleveland Indians have signed manager Terry Francona to a two-year contract extension through the 2022 season. Francona's deal was set to expire after 2020. But as he begins his seventh season with the Indians, the club decided to lengthen its relationship with the popular manager for at least another two years. Francona, who will turn 60 later this month, has led the Indians to three consecutive AL Central titles and the World Series in 2016, when Cleveland lost in seven games to the Chicago Cubs.
