HOUSTON - Alex Bregman and the Houston Astros have agreed to a huge deal that will buy out two years of the third baseman's free agency, according to multiple media reports.

The deal is reportedly for six years and $100 million.

Last week, Bregman, 24, was given a $641,000 salary for the upcoming season. He announced his displeasure with the contract at the time.

In 2018, Bregman hit 31 homers and a league-leading 51 doubles. He finished fifth in the American League MVP voting. 

The new contract keeps Bregman with the Astros through the 2024 season.

Bregman is coming off a breakout 2018 season.

He hit .286 with a .926 OPS, which ranked fifth in the AL. His 7.5 offensive WAR ranked third in the league.

He was selected to play in his first All-Star game in June and named the game's MVP.
