The Colorado Rockies signed right-handed pitcher Antonio Senzatela to a five-year extension worth $50.5 million, multiple outlets reported Tuesday.

The deal keeps Senzatela locked up through the 2026 season, with a club option for 2027, ESPN first reported. Senzatela will make $7.25 million the next two seasons and $12 million each year after. The club option is worth $14 million, per ESPN.

Senzatela, 26, went 4-10 with a 4.42 ERA in 28 starts this past season. Overall he is 36-35 in 124 games (98 starts) in five seasons, all in Colorado.

The Rockies also are actively pursuing an extension with first baseman C.J. Cron, ESPN reported. Cron hit .281 with 28 home runs and 92 RBIs in 2021. He’s set to become a free agent in November.

The Rockies finished 74-87, good for fourth in the National League West.

The team named Bill Schmidt its permanent general manager last weekend, removing the interim tag he had been operating under since May. Schmidt took over for Jeff Bridich, who resigned in late April.
