The Atlanta Braves have announced they have re-signed All-Star third baseman Austin Riley on a 10-year, $212 million contract.

Riley, who appeared in his first All-Star Game last month, is hitting .301 with 29 home runs and 68 RBIs this season. He is leading the league with 61 extra-base hits.

The 25-year-old's deal runs through the 2032 season, with the option for 2033 for $20 million.

Riley is among the top contenders for this season's National League MVP, along with St Louis Cardinals star Paul Goldschmidt.

The third baseman's 26 extra-base hits in July broke Hank Aaron's previous franchise record from 1961 by one.
