Over the last few weeks, the trend in Major League Baseball has been to extend player’s contracts before they reach free agency. Now Kyle Hendricks is doing the same.
On Tuesday afternoon, the team announced that they’ve come to a new four-year extension with the pitcher that includes a club option for the fifth year. While terms of the deal were not officially disclosed, Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic reports that the deal is worth $55.5 million for the four added years starting in 2020.
Hendricks will pitch on his previously agreed on $7.4 million dollar deal for the 2019 season.
