Paul Goldschmidt is under contract through at least the 2018 season; the Diamondbacks have an option they can pick up for 2019. If they do, Goldschmidt will be paid an average of $7.4 million a year over the life of the deal. That's certainly a bargain for someone who is a consensus top-five player.
