The requirements of Manny Machado (31),메이저놀이터 who announced that he would come to the free agent (FA) market with an opt-out declaration after the 2023 season, were revealed.
USA Today mentioned on the 20th (hereinafter Korean time) that Machado is aiming for a 10-year-$400 million contract in the free agent market to be held after the 2023 season.
This is a condition that differs greatly from the ‘5 years – 105 million dollars’ that San Diego initially proposed to Machado. The contract period is doubled, and the total amount is close to four times.
Previously, Machado reported on the implementation of the opt-out after the 2023 season at the San Diego Padres’ spring training site on the 18th.
At the time, Machado said, “The market is changing,” and “It has changed a lot from when I signed with San Diego. There is a lot of money in the market,” he said.
Machado signed a 10-year, $300 million contract with San Diego ahead of the 2019 season. At the time, the contract had an opt-out execution condition after the 2023 season.
As a result, Machado may return to the free agency market after the 2023 season. However, if you do not execute an opt-out after the 2023 season, you must remain in San Diego until the 2028 season.
Of course, Machado’s salary is still very high. Machado will receive $32 million annually through the 2028 season. But Machado is once again looking for an amazing deal.
Machado turns 32 in the 2024 season. If he signs a 10-year, $400 million contract, he could earn $40 million per year through his 41st season.
This is based on the performance of last year. Machado ranked second in the National League Most Valuable Player (MVP) with a batting average of 0.298 and 32 home runs OPS of 0.898 in 150 games last year.
In addition, Machado played more than 150 games every year for 7 years from 2015 to last year (excluding the shortened season in 2020). In 2020, he played in all 60 games.
