The market has changed” 30-year-old Machado declares FA, wants a 10-year contract

Manny Machado (San Diego) has announced his intention to become a free agent through an opt-out after this season. 먹튀검증The goal is another 10-year contract. He didn’t stop there, and like Nelson Cruz (San Diego), he expressed his desire to remain active even after he turned 42.

At a spring camp press conference on the 18th (Korean time), Machado predicted an opt-out, saying, “I’m a San Diego player until this year, but I don’t know what will happen next year.” Machado signed a 10-year, $300 million contract with San Diego ahead of the 2019 season, with an opt-out condition to declare free agency at the end of the fifth year.

“Of course the club is aware of my situation,” Machado said. “I’m talking about opting out, but I’m not saying I’m thinking about next year. I’m focusing on this season and my current team, San Diego. So far. “We have to continue doing what we did for this team. There’s something special about San Diego that makes it grow. That doesn’t change.”

The major league offseason trend last winter was ‘long-term contracts’. Players around the age of 30 often signed contracts for more than 10 years or 11-12 years. Right now, in San Diego alone, Xander Bogarts signed an 11-year, $280 million contract. Trey Turner (Philadelphia) transferred for $300 million in 11 years, and Rafael Devers stayed with Boston for 11 years and $313.5 million. Although the contract fell through, Carlos Correa agreed to a 13-year, $350 million deal with San Francisco.

Machado, who previously signed a 10-year, $300 million contract with San Diego at the age of 26, wants another contract of the same size. At the press conference, he showed his motivation, saying, “I want to play as long as Cruz, who is 42 years old this year.”

He also added, “This is business. The market changes. It’s a lot different from when I signed five years ago. Everything changes and develops for the players. It’s nice to see.” He has no doubt that the changed market environment will benefit him.

San Diego is pursuing a new contract extension with Machado. Manager Bob Melvin believed the club would offer good terms for Machado, such as the signing of Bogarts and a contract extension for Darvish. “We’ve shown a willingness to get important players. I’m sure it will be a good opportunity for Machado. I don’t even wonder what a team without a wagon would be like,” he said.

“All we have to do is stick together as a team and focus on the goal,” Machado said. revealed
