Nolan Arenado, Rockies reach 8-yr dea

Rockies Sign Nolan Arenado For Eight Years

Harper remains a free agent, and just as it appeared the Philadelphia Phillies emerged as the frontrunner, the Dodgers reportedly re-entered the picture.

The Colorado Rockies are finalizing an eight-year, $260 million contract with All-Star third baseman Nolan Arenado, according to multiple reports. The new deal replaces the third baseman's previous one-year contract for $26 million which was agreed to avoid arbitration in January and it includes a full no-trade clause.

Detroit's Miguel Cabrera previously was the best-paid-by-year position player at $31 million, but Arenado will not be challenging Giancarlo Stanton's $325 million for highest total or Zack Greinke's $34.42 million for highest average for any player. Mike Trout and reigning AL MVP Mookie Betts are also set to hit the free agency market in two years.

Arenado, a six-time Gold Glove victor, is one of baseball's great young talents.

Finally, with Machado and Arenado signed to massive deals, this now puts Bryce Harper in prime position to blow both deals out of the water. The reported contract would include an opt-out after three years and would make Arenado the highest paid position player per-year in the Major League Baseball.




After all the speculation and drama and even declarations that this day would never come, the Colorado Rockies have extended the best player in the history of their franchise, Nolan Arenado. What's more, his career OPS on the road is higher than the road OPS of Manny Machado (.761), who last week signed a 10-year, $300 million contract with San Diego.

That hasn't been lost on Arenado, who recently said: "There are some really good baseball players out there, and it is insane to think some of these teams don't need them".

"I don't go off what everyone else is doing".

"I think the future is much brighter in Colorado than it's been in the past", he said recently.

The length and structure of the deal was important to the Rockies. "It is. And I don't do a very good job of it". The team also announced a three-year contract extension for manager Bud Black through 2022.
