Fernando Tatis Jr. has consented to perhaps the greatest deals in baseball history, another 14-year contract with the San Diego Padres worth $340 million, as indicated by an individual with knowledge on the situation.
The person spoke on the state of obscurity in light of the fact that the arrangement was not at this point official.
The new contract becomes effective this season, which means Tatis, 22, is under group control through 2035. He would have been a free specialist after the 2024 season.
Tatis, one of baseball’s most splendid youthful stars, has played two seasons in the significant classes, hitting .301 with 39 homers and 98 RBIs in 143 games played. He hit 17 homers in the Covid abbreviated 2020 season and aided the Padres arrive at the postseason.
Tatis won a Silver Slugger grant in 2020, a season in which he completed fourth in the National League MVP casting a ballot behind the Atlanta Braves’ Freddie Freeman, Los Angeles Dodgers’ Mookie Betts and colleague Manny Machado.
It’s the third-biggest agreement in baseball history dependent on complete worth, behind Mike Trout ($430 million with Angels) and Betts ($365 million with Dodgers).
Tatis, nicknamed “El Niño”, is the child of previous major leaguer Fernando Tatis Sr., who played from 1997-2010 in the major leagues.
