He was the World Series MVP and was up for a new contract with the Houston Astros, and now George Springer has a deal worth $24 million over 2 years.

Avoiding arbitration with the deal, Springer was making just over $4 million a year and had asked for a raise to $10.5 million, but was offered $8.5 million.

Springer was the World Series MVP hitting five homers in the final 4 games of the series with a batting average of .379 in the 7-game series. His 5 homers tied a World Series record.
