The Houston Astros and outfielder George Springer have agreed to a 2-year $24M contract, according to USA Today’s Bob Nightengale.

Springer, who was arbitration-eligible for the second time, and the Astros had yet to resolve their arbitration matter with Springer filing for $10.5M and the Astos countering with $8.5M, but this contract will buy out Springer’s remaining 2 years of arbitration eligibility.

Springer is coming off the best season of his career in which he batted .283, smacking 34 homers and 29 doubles while playing a career-high 643 innings in center.

Springer also came up big against the Los Angeles Dodgers in the World Series hitting .379 and hitting 5 homeruns over 7 games.
