The Tampa Bay Rays signed outfielder Manuel Margot to a two-year extension worth $19 million, multiple outlets reported Tuesday.

Margot signed a one-year, $5.6 million contract with the club earlier this spring to avoid arbitration. The extension keeps the 27-year-old under contract through the 2024 season.

Margot batted .254 with 10 home runs, 57 RBIs and 13 stolen bases in 125 games for the Rays in 2021.

Tampa bay acquired Margot from the San Diego Padres in a February 2020 trade.

He is a career .251 hitter with 44 homers, 198 RBIs and 75 steals in 600 games with the Padres (2016-19) and Rays.
