LAKELAND, Fla. (AP) -- Detroit Tigers ace Justin Verlander has agreed to a five-year contract covering 2015-19.

The 2011 AL MVP and Cy Young Award winner had been signed to a deal through 2014 that calls for him to earn $20 million in each of the next two seasons. He had set a deadline of Wednesday earlier this week for cutting off talks on a new agreement.

The deal announced Friday includes an option for 2020 that could become guaranteed.
