CHICAGO (AP) -- Pitcher Jake Peavy and the Chicago White Sox agreed Tuesday to a $29 million, two-year contract.

The right-hander will receive $14.5 million in each of the next two seasons. Peavy would receive a $15 million option for 2015, depending on innings during the next two years.
Chicago also exercised a $9.5 million option on right-hander Gavin Floyd, declined a $10 million option on right-hander Brett Myers and turned down a $13 million option on third baseman Kevin Youkilis. Myers gets a $3 million buyout and Youkilis $1 million.

Floyd was 12-11 with a 4.29 ERA and 144 strikeouts in 29 starts last season, his fifth straight year with double-digit wins.

Youkilis helped solidify third base for the White Sox after a trade from Boston in late June and batted .236 with 15 home runs in 80 games for Chicago.

Myers was 3-4 with a 3.12 ERA in 35 relief appearances with Chicago after being acquired from Houston on July 21.

Only thing harder than achieving excellence is maintaining it.
Dream Well. It may come true.
