Blake Snell, Rays agree to $50 million, 5-year contract

PORT CHARLOTTE, Fla. (AP) AL Cy Young Award winner Blake Snell will go into his first career opening-day start with a lot more financial security than he envisioned just a few days ago.

The 26-year-old left-hander said Thursday he was almost certain he wouldn't receive the raise he felt he deserved until he hit arbitration next winter until he and the Tampa Bay Rays agreed to a $50 million, five-year contract that will keep him with the team through 2023.

"I'm excited we got it done. Honestly, surprised," Snell said, adding that negotiations intensified in the past three or four days.
