The Los Angeles Dodgers have a deal that will keep starting pitcher Chad Billingsley in the organization for the next three years, according to media sources.
The deal would pay the right hander at least $30 million through 2014 with a possible option for 2015. Billingsley was not set to be a free agent at the end of the season, so this is a contract extension that covers a season of arbitration.
Billingsley is coming off a season where he threw nearly 192 innings and compiled a 3.57 earned run average.
The Dodgers' first round pick in 2003 has been a regular starter since 2006.
