Report: D'Backs and Goldschmidt Agree to 5 Year Extension

Mark J. Rebilas-USA TODAY Sports

According to Jim Bowden of ESPN, the Diamondbacks and Goldy have agreed on a 5 year, $32 Million extension.

Obviously, this is all written with the caveat that it is being reported and not yet confirmed, but it would seem that the Diamondbacks and Paul Goldschmidt have agreed to the above mentioned extension. As you may or may not recall, the team approached him last month on the subject, but Goldschmidt balked (which was odd, since he is not a pitcher), but it was reported later that the two sides went back to the discussion table. As Nick P mentioned above, the deal would take him through 2018 with an option for 2019. Overall this comes out to around $6.4 Million AAV, which seems like good value for Goldschmidt if he puts up the sort of production he did last season.
