The extension which buys out Venable's final two years of arbitration will pay him $4.25 million in both 2014 and 2015. The 30-year-old has elevated his play amidst a series of San Diego outfield injuries slashing a career-best .273/.315/.503. Venable is hitting .351/.390/.630 with nine home runs since the All-Star break.
