The Boston Red Sox are reportedly in agreement with David Price on a seven-year deal worth $217 million, the Boston Globe reported Tuesday.

Price will earn a reported $31 million per season over the life of the contract, the largest in history for a free agent pitcher.

Price, 30, led the American League with a 2.45 ERA in 2015 while pitching for the Detroit Tigers and Toronto Blue Jays. The left-hander pitched 220.1 innings, striking out 225 while walking 47 on his way to a second-place Cy Young finish.

Meanwhile, the Blue Jays will move on with a rotation including Marcus Stroman, R.A. Dickey, Marco Estrada and J.A. Happ. Jesse Chavez, Drew Hutchison and Aaron Sanchez are among the candidates for Toronto’s final rotation spot, though interim GM Tony LaCava says the team continues searching for pitching.
