Rockies Confirm Arenado Extension, Record Deal With Opt-Out Clause

According to Passan, the deal includes an opt-out after three years - which would allow Arenado to hit free agency at age 30 should he choose that path - and will include a full no-trade clause.

Arenado was expected to be one of the biggest free agents on the market next season but the Rockies ensured it would not be the case after agreeing to terms over an extension on Tuesday. It also will set a new bar for Harper to beat if he wants to take away the title for highest position-player average, as he flirts with the Phillies, Giants and Dodgers, all offering various structures for deals, some guaranteeing the length he wants, some guaranteeing the average he wants. Arenado keeps the same $26 million salary he agreed to in January for the upcoming season, but earns him $35 million each year from 2020 through 2024. He's won the NL Gold Glove award for third baseman in every season he's played, making him six-for-six so far. That will make Arenado's tenure as highest-paid position player a short one. In 2018 he hit.297 with 38 home runs and 110 RBI, leading the Rockies to a second straight postseason berth for the first time in franchise history.

Manny Machado waited until last week before getting a $300 million, 10-year deal with San Diego, and Bryce Harper remains on the market.

But Pakistan says the bombs did not cause any casualties and threatened a response to what they perceived as Indian aggression. Pakistan has therefore, taken strikes at non military target, avoiding human loss and collateral damage.

What the Arenado deal does is show these players that teams have money to throw around.

Arenado says: "I don't go off what everyone else is doing". Earlier this month, Rockies owner Dick Monfort told The Denver Post that he was upbeat about Arenado being in a Rockies uniform for years to come. "It's in Nolan's hands, but my last impression with him is that this is something he wants to do".

The Rockies have not yet made the deal official.

"I don't think it was a coincidence", Harding said of the timing of the signing. "It is. And I don't do a very good job of it". But I'm not the right guy to ask, I'm somewhat biased.

The Rockies boast a young rotation led by Kyle Freeland and German Marquez that's filled with promise.
