Chicago White Sox
Pitcher Jake Peavy and the Chicago White Sox agreed Tuesday to a $29 million, two-year contract.
The right-hander will receive $14.5 million in each of the next two seasons. Peavy could receive a $15 million option for 2015, depending on innings 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.
The 2007 NL Cy Young Award winner went 11-12 with a 3.37 ERA in 32 starts this year after three injury-riddled seasons.
Chicago also exercised a $9.5 million option on right-hander Gavin Floyd on Tuesday, declined a $10 million option on right-hander Brett Myers and turned down a $13 million option on third baseman Kevin Youkilis, acquired from Boston in June. Myers gets a $3 million buyout and Youkilis $1 million.
Detroit exercised a $6 million option on shortstop Jhonny Peralta and a $3.5 million on reliever Octavio Dotel and also extended manager Jim Leyland's contract through next season.
Atlanta exercised options on catcher Brian McCann ($12 million), right-hander Tim Hudson ($9 million) and left-hander Paul Maholm ($6.5 million).
Texas declined options on right-handers Scott Feldman ($9.25 million) and Yoshinori Tateyama ($1.2 million).
Oakland allowed left-hander Dallas Braden and right-hander Joey Devine to become free agents. The pair, who missed 2012 because of injuries, refused minor league assignments.
