The Tampa Bay Rays and right-hander pitcher Joel Peralta agreed to a two-year contract worth $6 million, the Tampa Times reported Monday.

Peralta gets $3 million per year and has a $2.5 million option for 2015. The deal is pending a physical exam, which might not occur until next week.

"Some teams offered a little bit more money, but I got what I thought I was worth and I was happy with it," Peralta said. "I didn't want to go anywhere else."

Peralta, 36, has been the Rays main set-up man the past two seasons. He appeared in 76 games this past season with a 2-6 record, two saves and a 3.63 ERA. He made 71 appearances in 2011.

He was suspended eight games in June when umpires found excessive pine tar in his glove against the Washington Nationals.
