Marlins signed OF Christian Yelich to a seven-year, $49.57 million contract extension.

Advice: The deal includes a club option for 2022. Yelich is one of the Marlins' best young players, and he's the second outfielder, along with Giancarlo Stanton, that the Marlins have locked up to long-term extensions in recent months. With Marcell Ozuna under team control until 2018, the club has the makings of one of the premier outfields in the league. Yelich turned 23 years old in December and batted .284/.362/.402 with 94 runs scored last season.

Joe Frisaro of MLB.com reports the Marlins and Christian Yelich have agreed to a seven-year, $49.57 million contract extension.

Advice: The club hasn't announced it yet, but the new contract appears to be agreed upon in principle. It's a good deal for both sides, as the Marlins get a bargain on a very promising young outfielder and Yelich gets considerably more money than the pre-arbitration cash he's earning currently. The seven-year contract also includes an eight-year option worth $15 million, per Jeff Passan of Yahoo Sports.

According to MLB.com's Joe Frisaro, the Marlins are nearing a seven-year extension with Christian Yelich.

Advice: Jon Heyman of CBS Sports says the deal will be worth $49.5 million guaranteed and Yahoo's Jeff Passan adds that it carries a $15 million eighth-year club option. Yelich wasn't going to be eligible for salary arbitration until 2017, so it's an aggressive -- although potentially rewarding -- early-career extension for the Marlins. The 23-year-old Yelich batted .284/.362/.402 with nine home runs and 21 stolen bases in 144 games last season and also won a Gold Glove for his defense in the outfield. He has the look of a future star.
