Dustin Pedroia Contract Extension Details

Dustin Pedroia

As you may now know, the Red Sox have signed Dustin Pedroia through 2021, when he will be 38 years old. The contract is an eight-year deal worth $110 million and replaces his current contract starting at the end of the year. The deal makes him the second-highest paid second baseman in baseball (behind Ian Kinsler, who is earning $15 million per year).

In addition to a signing bonus of $1 million, here is a look at what Pedroia will earn, beginning next year:

2014 – $12.5m
2015 – $12.5m
2016 – $13m
2017 – $15m
2018 – $16m
2019 – $15m
2020 – $13m
2021 – $12m

Pedroia also gets partial trade protection and an awards package. Some of the money in the deal is deferred.
