According to Gordon Edes of ESPNBoston.com, the Red Sox have reached an agreement with David Ortiz that will keep the slugger in our f'in city through at least 2015.
The contract is a one-year extension worth $16 million. The deal will be announced by the team on Monday. Sources also indicate there are vesting options for 2016 and '17.
Thats 2014 salary for Ortiz. In 2015, $16m equals 689,785,707 Dominican pesos

Ortiz certainly made it known throughout spring training that he was looking for an extension.
Ortiz, who is entering his 12th season in Boston, batted .309 with 30 home runs and 103 RBI in 137 games last year and hit .455 with six RBI in last year’s World Series.
