MILWAUKEE — The Milwaukee Brewers and Christian Yelich are working toward a contract extension worth more than $200 million.

The Athletic reports the deal will likely be for seven years. An announcement is expected this Friday at the team's spring training facility in Maryvale, Arizona.

The 28-year-old is owed $12.5 million this season and $14 million next season with a $15 million club option.

His new deal would make him one of the game's highest-paid players, with an average annual salary in the $30 million to $35 million range.
