    Red Sox, Pedroia finalize deal

    BOSTON — The Boston Red Sox and All-Star second baseman Dustin Pedroia have finalized a $110 million, eight-year contract through the 2021 season.

    Pedroia had been signed for 2014 at $10 million under his old deal. The new contract was announced Wednesday.

    The 5-foot-8, 165-pound infielder was the AL Rookie of the Year in 2007 and AL MVP in 2008.

    Pedroia said on Tuesday that he was looking forward to completing the deal because “this is my home.”

    Pedroia is batting .306 this season with 25 doubles, six home runs and 58 RBIs. In his seven-year career — all with the Red Sox — he has a .303 batting average and an on-base percentage of .371.
