BOSTON -- The Boston Red Sox have agreed to terms with first baseman Adrian Gonzalez on a seven-year contract worth $154 million, multiple media outlets, including ESPN, are reporting.


The deal is expected to be announced Friday afternoon


Gonzalez receives a $6 million signing bonus, $21 million per year from 2012-16 and $21.5 million per year in 2017 and 2018, sources with knowledge of the deal told ESPN The Magazine's Buster Olney. Sources also said the deal has a partial no-trade clause.

The Red Sox acquired Gonzalez from the San Diego Padres in the offseason. The parameters of the deal were discussed at the time, but by waiting until after the season started, the Red Sox saved luxury tax money.

A three-time All-Star, Gonzalez is in his eighth season. He has a career average of .282 with 169 home runs.

The contract is the largest agreed-upon by the team's current ownership. The $160 million contract signed by former Red Sox outfielder Manny Ramirez was reached while the team was owned by the Jean Yawkey Trust.
