BREAKING: Manny Machado Signs With Padres

All-Star Manny Machado signs with the San Diego Padres

Manny Machado signs with Padres

Manny Machado finally gets his money, and the San Diego Padres get their guy.

Highlighting a bizarre offseason that has seen two of the sports biggest stars unsigned on the eve of the season, Machado signed a 10-year $300 million deal to stay in Southern California after finishing last season with the Los Angeles Dodgers in five games last October. The news was first reported by Mark Feinsand of MLB.com.

Machado, 26, is a four-time all-star and two-time Gold Glove Award winner at third base, where he will play in San Diego after playing shortstop last season for Los Angeles.

A former No. 3 overall pick in the MLB draft, Machado provides much-needed star power to a Padres lineup that has been one of the most futile in baseball in recent seasons.  Machado will pair with Eric Hosmer, an all-star first baseman, who in 2018 signed what was then the most lucrative contract in San Diego history, eight-years $144 million.

After making the playoffs in 2006, the Padres have been on the outside-looking-in the past 12 seasons, where they have finished above .500 only once.  Machado has career numbers of 175 home runs, .822 OPS, 522 runs and 513 RBI. Fellow star free agent Bryce Harper remains unsigned.

San Diego begins its season Thursday, March 28th vs San Francisco.

    Hey Omar, where do you think the Padres finish this year? Have a feeling machado will be v upset if he is playing more than 162.

      If I’m being honest, I don’t think the Padres will be ready to contend this year. However, all indications are they have one of the most well-nourished farm systems, so the next 3-5 years will be interesting.

    What a dummy, he’ll regret leaving the Dodgers. I can’t believe San Diego paid someone again!!!
