SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. — Bud Black agreed to a three-year contract extension, the team announced Monday.

Last year, the Rockies went 91-72, the second-most wins in franchise history. The contract extension goes through the 2022 season.

Black was named NL manager of the year in 2010 when he led the San Diego Padres to a 90-72 record.
