TUCSON, Ariz. — Arizona slugger Mark Reynolds says he’s agreed to terms on a new contract with the Diamondbacks.
Two people familiar with the talks said the deal was worth $14.5 million over three years and includes an $11 million club option for 2013. They spoke on condition of anonymity because the team has not announced the deal.
Reynolds expressed “relief to finally get it done.”
A 16th-round draft pick, the 26-year-old third baseman hit 44 homers with 102 RBIs last season. He also struck out 223 times, breaking the major league record of 204 he set the previous year.
His agreement first was reported by The Arizona Republic.
