Sources: Colorado Rockies lock up Ryan McMahon with 6-year, $70 million extension

Infielder Ryan McMahon and the Colorado Rockies agreed on a six-year, $70 million contract extension Monday, capping a week of spending in which the team guaranteed more than a quarter-billion dollars in salary, sources told ESPN.

McMahon, 27, is coming off a career-best season in which he hit .254/.331/.449 and played elite defense at third base and second base. The expectation is for him to remain the Rockies’ starting third baseman even in the wake of Kris Bryant signing a seven-year, $182 million free agent deal with Colorado last week.

The contract for McMahon will keep him from reaching free agency after the 2023 season and tie him to an organization that has a history of extending home-grown players. Before the lockout, the Rockies gave right-hander Antonio Senzatela a five-year, $50.5 million deal, and they previously had locked up right-hander German Marquez, outfielder Charlie Blackmon and third baseman Nolan Arenado, the latter of whom they traded last year to St. Louis.
