Evan Longoria, who will make $6 million this season, signed a six-year contract extension today that begins in 2017 and will pay him $100 million.

He will receive $13 million in 2017 during the first year of the extension. He will make $13.5 million in 2018, $14.5 million in ’19, $15 million in ’20, $18.5 million in ’21 and $19.5 million in ’22. The Rays hold an option for 2013 that calls for $13 million-plus options and a $5 million buyout.

In addition, there the contract does not include a no-trade clause, though Longoria will receive $2 million if he is traded.

It is the richest contract extension received by a Tampa Bay athlete, topping the 11 year, $85 million extension singed by Vinny Lecavalier of the Tampa Bay Lightning before the 2008 season.
