Evan Longoria signs extension with Tampa through 2023 season

Tampa Bay Rays ‏@RaysBaseball
Happy Monday--The Rays and Evan Longoria have agreed on a contract extension that could keep him in a Rays uniform through the 2023 season.

Tampa Bay Rays ‏@RaysBaseball
Longoria’s new contract incorporates the salaries for 2013-16 and extends 6 more years through 2022 for an additional $100 million.

Tampa Bay Rays ‏@RaysBaseball
Plus, the Rays have a club option on Longoria for 2023.

Good for the Rays.

I'm not sure this was neccessary for the Ray to do this right now. They could have waited out a couple more seasons and extend him then for probably that same amount. They're taking on a lot of risks here. They already had him signed until he turned 31, now they're going to pay him a boatload of money for his age 32-37 seasons.

Great value if he keeps it up but also very risky doing it now

Well, at least this is a sign of the Rays willing to keep a homegrown player in their uniform for the rest of his career.

Great signing for the Rays, it's a little risky but well worth it considering they have had a hard time keeping their star players. Hopefully this will help bring in other free agents.

I think it will. Longoria could be a great selling point.

Not a fan of having a guy under contract for 11 years, especially when the last 6 years will likely be on the down swing.

They gave him the money so that someone actually shows they want to stay in Tampa

Longoria's contract went from a biggest bargain in baseball to somewhat risky. Longoria will be 32 when the new deal kicks in and he'll 38 when it's done. Good for Rays for doing it. Hopefully Longoria is a Ray for life.

Health is my only concern with him, skill-wise this is obviously a fine deal. Nice to see that type of commitment from both sides.

LOL. From A-Rod's 32-38 seasons he will have made $179 million (and another $86 million in his 39-42 seasons). This isn't even close to being as bad as A-Rod's deal. Like not even in the same galaxy.

That is absolutely insane. 86 mill for his 39-42 seasons?
