The Detroit Tigers have agreed to a five-year contract extension with Justin Verlander through 2019, with a vesting option for the 2020 season.
ESPN reports that the deal is worth $180 million -- or $202 million if the 2020 season is in play.
"I love this city & the fans - couldn't be more excited to spend my career here!" Verlander tweeted shortly after the announcement. "We're going to bring a World Series to Detroit!!!"
