Lyou Minnesota Twins tied Byron Buxton for seven more seasons, after the center fielder reached an agreement to extend his contract in exchange for $ 100 million. The 27-year-old was scheduled to become a free agent after the 2022 season, but has now secured his future with the ninth.
This Sunday it emerged that Buxton had ended the negotiations and agreed to continue his career with Minnesota. In addition to the millionaire agreement, it has a clause to earn an extra $ 500 thousand dollars if he reaches a certain number of appearances in the batter’s box.
