First baseman Paul Goldschmidt and the Arizona Diamondbacks have reached agreement on a five-year contract extension worth $32 million, sources told ESPN’s Jim Bowden.

The extension includes a club option of $14.5 million in 2018.

Goldschmidt took hold of the starting role at first base last season and batted .286 with 20 home runs, 82 RBIs and a .359 on-base percentage in 145 games.

Arizona has locked up several players to extensions in the last year, among them catcher Miguel Montero, second baseman Aaron Hill and also Martin Prado, who was acquired from Atlanta in an offseason trade for outfielder Justin Upton.
