Manny Machado (31), a San Diego Padres colleague of Kim Ha-seong, has renewed his contract with the club for 11 years and receives a total of 350 million dollars (approximately 460.4 billion won).
Machado, an infielder, wore a Padres uniform in 2019. The club offered him 300 million dollars (approximately 394.6 billion won) for 10 years to him who entered the free agent (FA) market. The contents of the contract included Machado’s right to declare an ‘opt-out’ (the act of a player terminating the contract and obtaining a new FA qualification) after the 2023 season. The Padres were the first to open their wallets to catch Machado, the star of the game. 온라인바카라
