Wade Miley is sticking around for a while.
The Boston Red Sox agreed to a three-year contract extension with the left-handed starter, who came to the team this offseason in exchange for pitchers Rubby De La Rosa and Allen Webster and minor leaguer Raymel Flores. The deal is worth $19.25 million, according to Miley’s agent Tom O’Connell, and includes a club option for 2018.
Miley went 8-12 with a 4.34 ERA in 33 starts for the Arizona Diamondbacks last season and ranked ninth among lefties with 8.2 strikeouts per nine innings. His 183 strikeouts were fourth among NL southpaws, trailing only Clayton Kershaw, Madison Bumgarner and Cole Hamels.
The 28-year-old is 38-35 with a 3.79 ERA in his four-year career.
