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.
