MANNY MACHADO SIGNS MASSIVE LONG-TERM DEAL WITH PADRES

MANNY MACHADO SIGNS MASSIVE LONG-TERM DEAL WITH PADRES

Finally, one of the biggest free agents on the market has a team to call his own. On Tuesday, the San Diego Padres announced that they had signed much-coveted free agent Manny Machado to a 10-year, $300M deal.

Machado’s contract is the largest free-agent contract in the history of American sports. At least, until Bryce Harper finally signs.

The 26-year-old hit .297/.367/.538 with 37 home runs and 107 RBIs as a member of the Baltimore Orioles and Los Angeles Dodgers in 2018.

Manny Machado’s deal, as @Feinsand first reported, is for 10 years and $300 million with an opt-out after the fifth season.

A monumental deal — the single biggest free agent contract in American sports history.

And now every eye in baseball turns to Bryce Harper. His move.— Jeff Passan (@JeffPassan) February 19, 2019
