Diamondbacks Talking Long-Term Extension With Burgeoning Star

The Arizona Diamondbacks are reportedly in talks with rookie outfielder Corbin Carroll regarding a potential long-term contract extension.

The organization is said to view Carroll, who has just 38 days of MLB experience, as a centerpiece for their future plans, and is looking to secure him beyond the six seasons of club control.

Carroll, a 22-year-old rising star, made an impressive debut in the big leagues last season, batting .260/.330/.500 with four home runs, nine doubles, two triples, 14 RBI, and two stolen bases in 115 plate appearances.

With his promising start and potential for continued growth, it's no surprise that the Diamondbacks are eager to keep Carroll in Arizona for the long term.

Throughout his minor-league career, the twenty-two-year-old holds a fantastic .310/.426/.588 triple-slash line, with 28 home runs, 87 RBIs, 52 stolen bases and 134 runs scored over 142 games. He truly is a five-tool player.

The negotiations for a new contract are still ongoing, but it's clear that the team views him as a valuable asset and a key part of their future plans, which Arizona fans will be pleased to hear.
