Franco signs $182-million, 11-year contract with Tampa Bay

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) Wander Franco and the Tampa Bay Rays have finalized an $182 million, 11-year contract that includes a club option for the 2033 season.

The shortstop's deal, which could be worth up to $223 million if the club option is exercised and incentives are reached, was announced Saturday.

"This is a great day for Wander and for the Rays, and is evidence of the mutual trust between Wander and our organization," Rays principal owner Stuart Sternberg said in a statement. "We are committed to fielding competitive teams year in and year out, and we all expect that Wander's presence and contributions will play a large part in maintaining our standard of excellence."
