Brandon Crawford and Giants SF agree to contract extension until 2023

The San Francisco Giants and shortstop Brandon Crawford have agreed to a two-year, $ 32 million contract extension, the team announced Friday.

The extension, which has a base salary of $ 16 million for each season, runs through the 2023 season.

Crawford’s dependable infield play and offense are the main reasons the Giants have the best record in the majors and lead the talented NL West in a year in which they have surprised the reigning champions of the World Series, the Los Angeles Dodgers and the San Diego Padres.

Crawford is hitting .296, his career-high, with 19 homers, 21 doubles, a triple and 69 RBIs. He earned his third All-Star pick this summer and is a three-time Golden Glove winner.

He is in the final season of a six-year, $ 75 million contract signed in November 2015. He is making $ 15 million this season.

The Bay Area native is the franchise’s all-time leader in games played at shortstop, beating out Hall of Famer Travis Jackson earlier this season.

In his 11th season with San Francisco, Crawford was part of the 2012 and 2014 World Series champion teams. He won Gold Gloves from 2015 to 2017 and a Silver Slugger Award in 2015. (ESPNDEPORTES)
