Reports: Braves sign Acuna to 8-year, $100M extension

The Atlanta Braves and 21-year-old outfielder Ronald Acuna Jr. have agreed to an eight-year, $100 million contract extension, multiple outlets reported Tuesday.
The deal begins this season and includes a $10 million buyout on two club options worth $17 million each, according to ESPN’s Jeff Passan. That means Atlanta can potentially keep Acuna for the next 10 seasons (through 2028) at a maximum of $124 million.
Acuna batted .293 with 26 homers, 64 RBIs, 78 runs scored and 16 stolen bases in just 111 games last season as the National League Rookie of the Year.
Through the Braves’ first four games this year, Acuna was 3-for-14 at the plate with one home run and two RBIs.
