DENVER – The Colorado Rockies and manager Bud Black have agreed to a three-year contract extension through 2022 as the team kicks off Spring Training in Arizona.

Black is entering his third season as the manager of the Rockies after leading the team to the playoffs in his first two seasons – the first time ever the Rockies have made the postseason in back-to-back years.

He has been a finalist for National League Manager of the year both years as well and has a 178-147 record over his first two seasons – the best winning percentage among the seven Rockies managers so far.

Black, 61, previously served as the manager of the San Diego Padres from 2007 to 2015, where he won National League Manager of the Year honors in 2010.

The Rockies did not immediately release the terms of the agreement Monday morning.
