Still, he has signed another deal with the Rays that keeps him in town through at least 2022, with a team option for 2023.
Longoria's deal is for 6 additional years and $100M tacked onto the end of his current contract.
Rays owner Stuart Sternberg explained the rationale behind the new deal:
Based on this contract, it looks like Longoria will end up with the Rays for his entire career, barring a blockbuster trade or sudden disinterest from the Rays later in his deal.
This is pretty unusual nowadays, but it's good to see at least one team and one player who have some loyalty left.
