David Ortiz and the Red Sox have agreed to a 2015 contract with options for the following two years, a move that means the popular slugger will probably finish his career in Boston.

Ortiz, the World Series MVP last season, has helped lead the Red Sox to three championships in the past 10 years. Affectionately known as "Big Papi," he batted .309 with 30 home runs and 103 RBIs in 137 games last season.

The 38-year-old designated hitter has 431 homers during his major league career and has made nine All-Star teams in 11 years with Boston.

The Red Sox announced the deal Sunday night. It includes a club or vesting option for 2016, and a club option for 2017.
