San Diego owner’s pocket signed an 11-year $350 million extension to Hwajubun Machado.

San Diego

Manny Machado (31, San Diego Padres), a top third baseman in the U.S. Major League Baseball and a close teammate of Kim Ha-sung (28), signed an 11-year extension contract, contrary to the expectation that he will declare an opt-out (right to declare FA again after breaking the contract) after this season. In fact, it is a lifetime contract.

Citing sources, MLB Dotcom reported on the 27th that Machado renewed his 11-year contract with San Diego for a total of $350 million (about 461.3 billion won). The media said, “Machado planned to ‘opt out’ after the 2023 season,” and explained, “Machado had six years and $180 million left in its contract period, and with a new contract, it can add five years and receive an additional $170 million.”

Machado signed a 10-year, $300 million FA contract with San Diego in 2019 and an average of $30 million per year, and the contract included the right for Machado to declare an opt-out after the 2023 season. After this season, Machado was able to become an FA player, and Machado also expressed his intention to exercise an opt-out after San Diego did not offer an extension contract during the stove league. As a result, the San Diego front desk moved quickly. Since Machado joined San Diego, he has become a clubhouse leader and has been reborn as a central player in the team.

The reason why San Diego gave Machado a lifetime contract is that he still has skills. Machado, who made his big league debut with the Baltimore Orioles in 2012, is a special infielder with both long hitting and defensive skills. In the 2022 season, he played 150 games with a batting average of 0.298, 32 home runs, and 102 RBIs, ranking second in the MVP voting after Paul Goldschmidt (St. Louis Cardinals). In the four years since joining San Diego in 2019, he has a batting average of 0.280, an on-base percentage of 0.352, a slugging percentage of 0.504, and 108 home runs and 330 RBIs. In 2020, which was held in a shortened season due to COVID-19, Machado also ranked third in the MVP voting with a batting average of 0.304, 16 home runs and 47 RBIs.

San Diego, which caught Machado, will be able to maintain its All-Star infield power for the time being. San Diego recruited shortstop Xander Bogartz, who was released as an FA from Boston this winter. As Machado will not leave the team, Kim Ha-sung will play as a second baseman. Jake Cronenworth will be the first baseman. Fernando Tatis Jr., who will return after taking banned drugs in mid-April, is expected to move his position to the outfield 사설토토사이트

Machado is currently participating in Team Spring Camp in Peoria, Arizona, USA, and plans to compete in the 2023 World Baseball Classic (WBC) as a member of the Dominican Republic national team next month.
