Cleveland, OH (92.3 The Fan) – Manny Machado agreed to a 10-year, $300 million deal with the San Diego Padres, according to ESPN's Jeff Passan. It’s the biggest free-agent contract in American sports history.

Machado, 26, is a four-time All-Star. He played in Baltimore for the first six and a half years of his career before being traded to Los Angeles last season.

He posted a career-high .905 OPS in 2018, with a .297/.367/.538 slash line. He finished with 37 home runs, 107 RBIs and 14 stolen bases. Passan says the deal includes an opt-out after the fifth season.
