The Arizona Diamondbacks agreed to a three-year, $22 million extension with outfielder David Peralta, taking the Gold Glove winner’s contract through the 2022 season, USA Today reported Friday.
Peralta was arbitration eligible for the final time this winter, with the new extension now taking his deal through his first two free-agent years. The 32-year old batted .275 with 12 home runs and 57 RBIs during a season that was limited to 99 games because right shoulder issues.
Despite the limited play, Peralta still won his first Gold Glove Award in 2019 for his play in left field.
Over six career seasons, all with the Diamondbacks, Peralta is a .290 career hitter with 85 home runs and 330 RBIs. He led the National League with 10 triples in 2015 and was won a Silver Slugger Award in 2018.
