Alex Bregman signed a long-term deal with the Houston Astros, but says the decision wasn't impacted by baseball's second-straight slow free agent market.
"I wanted to play here," he said. "I didn't want to play anywhere else. I wanted to be in orange and blue for as long as I possibly can. I love this organization. I want to win here for a long time."
Bregman signed a five-year, $100 million contract covering 2020-24.
The Astros picked Bregman with the No. 2 overall pick in 2015.
