Zobrist's extension: $18 million; potentially $30 million

Apr 23, 2010, 5:20 PM EST

Here are the details on the Ben Zobrist extension we mentioned this morning. The deal guarantees him $18 million through 2013, partially in salary, partially in buyouts if the team options aren’t exercised. Those options are valued at $7 million for 2014 and $7.5 million for 2015.

Given that Evan Longoria is making — six years, $17.5 million — this seems on the high side.  Or maybe it’s just that Longoria’s deal is just so damn cheap that it’s hard to get a frame of reference.

    I’d go with Longoria being too cheap for an accurate frame of reference. 30 mill may still be a touch high, but it’s hard to compare with a deal like Longoria’s.
