Rays, Evan Longoria agree to 6-year, $100 million contract extension

New, comment

Longoria is now signed through the 2022 season, with an option for 2023.


The Tampa Bay Rays and Evan Longoria have come to an agreement on a six-year, $100 million contract that will keep the third baseman in a Rays uniform through at least the 2022 season, the team has announced:

The 27-year-old Longoria was already signed to one of the most team-friendly contracts in baseball, a six-year, $47.5 million deal signed in 2008 after he had played in just one MLB game. Now, with an extra six years and $100 million added to his contract, Longoria is owed $136 million over the next ten seasons, plus a club option for 2023.

The 2008 AL Rookie of the Year and three-time All-Star is a career .271/.361/.516 hitter and has averaged 26 home runs and 91 RBI in his five big-league seasons.
