The Nationals and Ryan Zimmerman have agreed to an extension, as reported on Twitter by the Washington Post’s Adam Kilgore. The deal is worth $100M over six years, as reported by Jim Bowden, and includes a team option for a seventh year at $24M. The agreement marks the end tense negotiations, as Zimmerman had earlier said that he did not wish to negotiate past Friday. Zimmerman is now under team control through 2020 if his option is exercised.

About the Author
I've loved baseball all my life. As a kid, I went to O's games with my dad, including Cal Ripken's last game. Fortunately, the Nats came to town just as I was getting old enough to develop a fanhood. I guess I really dodged a bullet there. I was at the first game at RFK and the last, but I'll never forget the first game at Nats Park. Watching Zimmerman's walk-off soar into the night sky was a truly formative experience in my life, and is certainly one of the reasons I'm so passionate about the Nationals now.
