Fernando Tatis Jr. is not going anywhere for a while.

According to multiple reports, Tatis and the San Diego Padres agreed to a massive 14-year extension worth $340 million.

USA TODAY’s Bob Nightengale added this tidbit:

It’s the third-largest contract in Major League Baseball history. Mike Trout ($430 million with the Los Angeles Angels) and Mookie Betts ($365 million with the Los Angeles Dodgers) are the other two.

Tatis, 22, has spent the last two seasons in San Diego and had a strong 2020 season. The shortstop batted .277 with 17 home runs and 45 RBIs.

Fun fact: Tatis has not yet played a full Major League Baseball season.
