    Big hangup all along was giving David Ortiz a raise. Ortiz settled for a 1-year, $16 million which will equal Mike Napoli's pay in 2015

    The Red Sox and David Ortiz have reached agrement on a one-year extension, tweets ESPNBoston.com's Gordon Edes.Rob Bradford of WEEI.com reports the one-year deal for 2015 is worth $16MM and will be announced tomorrow. FOX Sports' Jon Paul Morosi tweets the extension may include a club option for 2016, which becomes a vesting player option based on plate appearances.

    This one is in the category of a no brainer.  It was a certainty. Anything else would have been a shock.

    No one deserving more than Ortiz and what he has meant to this organization. Never one to throw $ away, but even if Ortiz weren't able to play physically the last yr of his contract he's earned every dime of it. Great move by ownership!

    the deal also has 2017 club option.  If Papi is still productive, he will play for the Red Sox.

    Exactly. If he is complaining, that must mean he is staying healthy and still mashing the ball, which is good news for the Red Sox...I think everyone could live through the occasional off-the-field gripe if that was the case. But hopefully the option years will keep the big guy happy and settle the contract issue for the remainder of his playing career.

    As it turns out, it's 16mil for 2015, Vesting option for 2016, Team option for 2017.

    The team actually found a way to have it make sense. Ortiz WILL FINISH his career in Boston. I'm calling it now. He won't be playing in 2018 for anyone. I think he'd be 41. Maybe 42.

    Reasonable money for what he does. He gets paid only if he continues to produce, and the team holds the true option.

    Red Sox, as they have ALWAYS done, do right by Ortiz.

    Anyone knows the specifics in those options?  I read options will be based on Papi's number of plate appearances but nothing in specific.

    The structure of David Ortiz’s contract 03.24.14 at 1:55 pm ET By Alex Speier   1     

    The Red Sox announced on Sunday night that David Ortiz‘s one-year, $16 million contract extension for 2015 includes both a team/vesting option for 2016 and a team option for 2017.

    Here’s how the 2016 option works: It starts as a $10 million team option for the 2016 season. If Ortiz reaches 425 plate appearances, the option would vest and become guaranteed at $11 million. After 425 plate appearances, Ortiz has a number of bonuses to reflect the playing time with a maximum earnings potential of $16 million at 600 plate appearances.

    The 2017 option is a straight team option that likewise starts at $10 million. The team option increases starting at 425 plate appearances (to the same $11 million figure) up to the potential for $16 million if Ortiz has as many as 600 plate appearances), but there is no vesting clause that would guarantee the 2017 salary based on plate appearances.

    The team/vesting option for 2016 represents a form of risk-sharing meant to ensure that the designated hitter’s salary beyond this season is tied to his health and productivity. Just as Ortiz and the Sox structured his current two-year deal in a fashion meant to ensure he was fairly compensated if healthy — the two-year, $26 million contract featured a $15 million salary for 2013 and $11 million salary for 2014, with the latter figure increasing to $15 million because Ortiz spent fewer than 20 days on the DL in 2013 — so does the new contract reward Ortiz if he remains a Sox lineup linchpin.

    “€œWe feel great that this virtually guarantees that David will finish his career with the Red Sox,” GM Ben Cherington told reporters. “And more importantly … we feel great that it means that David’s going ot be in the middle of our lineup for longer. And that’s really important to us.”

    So basically, the amount guaranteed by the options is substantially lower ($10 million) and Ortiz can earn more based on playing time. I was hoping for a result like this, actually...it protects the team somewhat in case he ends up missing major time with injuries. I'm even happier about this outcome now.
