Austin Riley agrees to a 10-year, $212 million deal with the Atlanta Braves

The Atlanta Braves have signed star third baseman Austin Riley to a 10-year, $212 million contract, the team announced Monday.

The deal runs through the 2032 season and includes a $20 million club option for 2033.

Riley also agreed to donate $2.12 million to the Braves Foundation, the team said.

The news comes just weeks after the 25-year-old Riley appeared in his first All-Star Game. He is currently hitting .301 with 29 home runs and 68 RBIs, with a .964 OPS in 101 games this season. His 61 extra-base hits are the most in the majors, and included 26 in July, which broke Hank Aaron’s previous franchise record by one (1961).

Riley was a first-round pick by the Braves in 2015.

He made his major league debut four years later, and broke out last season, finishing seventh in NL MVP voting after hitting .303 with 33 home runs and 107 RBIs.
