Tampa Bay Rays third baseman Evan Longoria signed a six-year, $100 million contract extension that runs through the 2022 Major League Baseball season.

The deal for the three-time All-Star, which also includes a club option for 2023, incorporates salaries negotiated in his previous contract for 2013-16, the Rays said on their website.

Longoria, 27, was scheduled to make $6 million in 2013 and the team had club options to pay him $7.5 million in 2014, $11 million in 2015 and $11.5 million in 2016, according to Baseball Prospectus. That makes the value of the new contract $136 million over 10 years. He made $8.5 million in total salary from 2008 to 2012.

“Evan has all of the attributes we seek in a player,” Andrew Friedman, the Rays’ executive vice president of baseball operations, said in a statement. “His determination and work ethic inspire others around him.”

Longoria, the American League Rookie of the Year in 2008, was limited to 74 games last season after partially tearing his left hamstring on April 30. He hit .289 with 17 home runs and 55 runs batted in as the Rays finished 90-72 to miss the postseason.

For his career, Longoria has a .276 batting average with 130 homers and 456 RBI, twice winning a Gold Glove for his fielding.
