BOSTON (WPRI) — The Boston Red Sox have reportedly landed their ace, agreeing Tuesday to a mammoth 7-year, $217 million deal with pitcher David Price, according to a report from the Boston Globe.

Price, 30, went 18-5 last season and was one of the top pitchers on the market.

The deal reunites Price with former Detroit Tigers GM Dave Dombrowski, who took over as president of the Red Sox earlier this year. Price was traded to the Toronto Blue Jays in July for three prospects after the Tigers fell out of contention.

Price is a Cy Young Award winner and five-time All-Star.

The contract, which reportedly includes a three-year opt out, would be the biggest for a pitcher in MLB history.
