Marlins lockdown Christian Yelich until 2021


The Miami Marlins have continued on their quest (and keep their promise) to build a winning team around their $325 million man, right fielder Giancarlo Stanton.

According to multiple reports on Wednesday a source has revealed that the Marlins and left fielder Christian Yelich have agreed to a seven year contract extension worth $49.570 million.

The extension reportedly includes an option for an eighth year and will be announced at a press conference on Sunday at prior to the team’s spring training game against the Minnesota Twins at Roger Dean Stadium in Jupiter, Florida.

The Marlins have yet to confirm a deal has been made but it is safe to assume one has been. Part of the team’s plan to build a winning team around Stanton included locking down their pre-arbitration eligible players like Yelich.
