Albies was inked to a seven-year extension through 2025 worth $35 million, with club options for 2026 and 2027. Albies' OPS in his first full season, also an All-Star year, was.757.

Ozzie Albies was already locked up through the 2023 season so this will add at least two years of free agency with the ability to cover four years of free agency.

Albies, 22, was signed by the Braves in 2013 as an worldwide free agent.

The 22-year-old has quickly become one of the top players at his position since debuting in the big leagues, authoring a career slash line of.272/.323/.456 with 31 home runs, 102 RBIs, and 24 steals in 226 games.

In an era of record breaking contracts and massive deals, the Braves will be keeping each player through a part of their prime for a bargain.

Speaking in the House of Commons on Thursday, the Prime Minister told MPs it was their "national duty" to agree to a Brexit deal. She still hopes Britain can avoid the U.K.'s May 23 election by leaving the 28-nation bloc before then.

According MLB Network, the two-year options are for $7 million and $4 million. "And I took (the deal) because I want my family to be safe". If that is the case, his $100 million deal now makes that far easier to accomplish rather than making the league minimum for another 3 seasons prior to arbitration. In comments given following the Braves' contract extension press conference, Albies stated, "I'm excited to be here for another seven years".

Albies knew he signed a team-friendly contract.

The 2019 version of Albies has gotten off to a good start as well in the first few weeks as he is hitting.364 and playing good defense.

"I love being part of the Braves and I want to be a courageous for the rest of my life", Albies said, according to Kevin McAlpin of Braves Radio Net.
