BOSTON (CBS) – The most durable member of last year’s rotation for the Boston Red Sox is now coming back.

Left-hander Martin Perez, who had his option declined by the Red Sox on Nov. 1, will now reportedly return to the team on a one-year deal that includes a club option for 2022.

The Athletic’s Ken Rosenthal was the first to report the news on Saturday.

Perez will earn $4.5 million in 2021 with a $6 million option that includes a $500,000 buyout. Therefore, the 29-year-old will be guaranteed $5 million. As of Saturday night, the Red Sox have not confirmed the deal.

MLB.com’s Mark Feinsand said, “The deal is done, but pending physical, per source.”
