Left-hander Martin Perez accepted the Texas Rangers’ $19.65 million qualifying offer for the 2023 season.

The pitcher’s agent confirmed the news Tuesday, the deadline for players to accept the one-year deals, on social media.

Perez, 31, receives a significant salary spike after returning to Texas on a one-year, $4 million contract in 2022.

Perez made the American League All-Star team this season and finished 12-8 with a 2.89 ERA in 32 starts.

He is 75-77 with a 4.43 ERA in 253 games (223 starts) in 11 seasons with the Rangers (2012-18, 2022), Minnesota Twins (2019) and Boston Red Sox (2020-21).
