The Los Angeles Dodgers gave infielder Max Muncy a two-year, $24 million contract extension on Thursday.

The deal takes Muncy through the 2025 season and includes a $10 million club option for 2026, the team said in a release.

Muncy, 33, had a $14 million pending club option for 2024 but the Dodgers decided to extend him instead.

Muncy batted .212 with a career-high-tying 36 home runs and a career-best 105 RBIs in 135 games in 2023, his sixth season with the Dodgers. In eight MLB seasons with the Oakland Athletics (2015-16) and Los Angeles (2018-23), Muncy is a career .227 hitter with 180 home runs and 489 RBIs.

Muncy's 175 home runs in a Dodgers uniform rank sixth in Los Angeles history, two behind Hall of Famer Mike Piazza for fifth place.

Muncy spent most of 2023 at third base but has also played first and second.
