CelebNSports247.com reports the Houston Astros are making sure to keep Alex Bregman with a sweet deal totaling $100 million dollars for 6 years.
It looks like a good deal for both sides. Alex Bregman gets paid, the team wraps up an All-Star player in his prime, and they can buy out the contract after two free agent years.
This is a win-win.
Here is the breakdown of Alex Bergman’s deal with the Astros:
Bregman will be paid $11MM annually from 2020-22 before earning $28.5MM in both 2023 and 2024, ESPN’s Jeff Passan reports. He also has a 10-team no-trade clause for the 2023-24 seasons.
March 20: The deal includes a $10MM signing bonus, per Jon Heyman of MLB Network (via Twitter). That’s unusual for a pre-arb contract; Heyman even suggests it may be unprecedented.
Bregman can also boost his salary through escalators based upon MVP award finishes, the details of which are not yet known.
