The Atlanta Braves have signed second baseman Ozzie Albies to an extension on Thursday. He has received a seven-year, $35 million deal. 

In his contract, there will be two option seasons. Potentially, this deal could turn into a nine-year deal. If it does go nine-years, it could be worth $45 million.
