Astros and Alex Bregmen extend contract

HOUSTON, TX (KTRE) - It looks like third basemen Alex Bregman will be in Houston for the next several seasons.

According to multiple Houston media outlets, Bregman and the club have agreed to a five-year deal worth $100 million. The reports claim that deal will cover Bregman’s three years of arbitration-eligibility and the first two seasons he would be able to be a free agent.

According to the Houston Chronicle, Bregman’s is the second-largest pre-arbitration contract given to a player. The Angels’ Mike Trout signed a six-year, $144 million deal in 2014.
