Manny Machado has agreed to a 10-year, $300 million deal with the San Diego Padres, according to multiple reports. The Padres hold their first full team workout of spring training on Tuesday.
Machado lands with San Diego as a free agent after the Baltimore Orioles dealt him to the Los Angeles Dodgers at the trade deadline last year. The four-time All-Star is a .282/.335/.487 career hitter with 175 home runs, 513 RBIs, 211 doubles, 12 triples and a .822 OPS.
This likely is semantics. Machado has not passed a physical and the two sides have not finalized language. But they are in agreement on financial terms. https://t.co/j4kcZZBRg1— Ken Rosenthal (@Ken_Rosenthal) February 19, 2019
Machado went 4 for 22 with three RBIs and five strikeouts against the Red Sox in the World Series.
