The deal covers the three years after this season when the former LSU star would have been eligible for arbitration, plus Bregman’s first two free-agent years.
The 25-year old Bregman comes off a stellar 2018 season, just his second full year as a big leaguer, when he slashed .286/.394/.532 with 31 home runs, a major-league high 51 doubles, four triples, 103 RBIs and 10 steals. The previous season, he helped Houston win the first World Series title in franchise history.
