Boston Red Sox sign Garrett Whitlock to four-year extension; source says reliever guaranteed nearly $19M

The Boston Red Sox have signed right-handed reliever Garrett Whitlock to a four-year contract extension, the team announced Sunday.

Whitlock is guaranteed a total of $18.75 million from 2023 to 2026, a source told ESPN. The deal also includes club options for the 2027 and 2028 seasons, with the source saying Whitlock would make $8.25 million in 2027 and $10.5 million in 2028 if the options are picked up. The Red Sox could pay a $1 million buyout before 2027 or a $500,000 buyout before 2028, the source said.

After breaking into the majors with the Red Sox last season, Whitlock will remain eligible for Major League Baseball’s new $50 million bonus pool for pre-arbitration-eligible players. He could earn bonuses based on innings pitched, awards and whether he serves as a starting pitcher or a reliever, making as much as $44.5 million over the life of the contract, the source said.

The 25-year-old had agreed last month to a one-year contract paying $720,000 while in the major leagues and $285,250 while in the minors.
