Nick Ahmed signs with Arizona Diamondbacks through 2023

The Arizona Diamondbacks reached a contract extension with shortstop Nick Ahmed for four years, taking his deal through the 2023 season.

The team announced the agreement Monday.

AZCentral.com’s Nick Piecoro reported the deal is guaranteed for $32.5 million, plus incentives. Ahmed and the D-backs did not agree to terms on his 2020 salary last month and was facing an upcoming arbitration hearing.

The 29-year-old has become one of MLB’s elite defensive shortstops, but his offense has steadily improved over the course of his career, which in the majors began with Arizona in 2014.

Mariners sign pitcher Marco Gonzales to four-year extension

The Mariners have inked their top pitcher to a multi-year contract.

Seattle and left-hander Marco Gonzales came to terms on a four-year deal with a club option for 2025, the team announced Monday. The new contract rolls into effect in 2021.

The four-year extension is worth $30 million, according to MLB insider Ken Rosenthal. The club did not reveal terms of the agreement.

“Since joining the Mariners, Marco has been a model of consistency, quietly ranking among the most productive starting pitchers in the AL,” Mariners general manager Jerry Dipoto said in a statement. “His presence, competitiveness, preparation and leadership make him a key part of our future.”

Rockies’ Trevor Story agrees to two-year, $27.5 million contract

Rockies’ all-star shortstop Trevor Story has agreed to a two-year, $27.5 million contract, a source confirmed Friday night.

The deal, first reported by ESPN, will cover the final two years of Story’s arbitration eligibility. The Rockies have not announced or confirmed the deal. The contract could be announced as soon as Saturday.

Story, 27, is scheduled to be at Coors Field Saturday for the Rockies’ fan fest.

When the Rockies and Story submitted arbitration figures for 2020, the two sides were $750,000 apart, with Story asking for $11.5 million for one year and Colorado countering with $10.75 million.

Does this mean Trevor Story can get respect?
