The Miami Marlins and outfielder Christian Yelich have agreed to a seven-year deal worth $49.5 million, according to multiple reports Wednesday.

The deal also includes a club option for an eighth year, according to reports.

Yelich, 23, emerged as one of Miami’s top young players last season, batting .284 with nine home runs and 54 RBIs.

“He’s very mature for his age,” Marlins manager Mike Redmond told reporters Wednesday morning. “It’s amazing when you watch him play and watch his at-bats, and his approach, how professional they are at such a young age.
