Ezequiel Tovar

Colorado Rockies shortstop Ezequiel Tovar agreed to a seven-year contract extension on Tuesday that runs through the 2030 season with a club option for 2031.

Financial terms were not disclosed, however MLB.com reported it’s worth $63.5 million through 2030 and $84 million if the option is exercised.

“We are excited to be able to secure Ezequiel’s future in Denver with this extension,” said Bill Schmidt, Rockies senior vice president and general manager. “He has already proven he is one of the best shortstops in baseball, and we see him as a cornerstone of this franchise for years to come.”

Tovar, 22, batted .253 with 37 doubles, 15 homers and 73 RBIs in 153 games last season. He became the youngest Opening Day starter in franchise history in 2023.

Tovar was named a National League Gold Glove Award finalist last season.
