Early rumors point to a seven-year, $80MM deal.
Huge coup for the Rockies, even if only three of the seasons go beyond his team-controlled years. They've now got their 3-4 hitters locked up for the long-term.
Those 3 free agent seasons could very easily have been worth $20MM/year, and it looks as if the Rockies will be paying about that much for each of them.
The $20MM for his pre-arb and arbitration years could be a slight discount over what he could make in arbitration, but not by an amazing figure.
Not exactly team-friendly, but a solid extension nonetheless.
