CLEVELAND, Ohio (WOIO) - The Cleveland Guardians announced they have resigned third baseman Jose Ramirez to a seven-year deal April 14.

Ramirez will be staying put in Cleveland through the 2028 season, according to a social media post from the organization.

The new extension for Ramirez will make the nine-year veteran the longest-tenured position player in club history.

According to ESPN insider Jeff Passan, Ramirez is guaranteed $150 million and the contract includes a no-trade clause.

The team took to their Twitter page to have a little bit of fun with the big news.

Ramirez’s bat has been hot so far this year for the Guardians (4-2), hoisting a .460 batting average while adding 3 home runs and 14 RBIs early in the 2022 campaign.

Prior to the 7:10 p.m. home opener against the San Francisco Giants (4-2) on April 15, the team will hold a press conference at 2 p.m.
