MLB Rumors: Jake Cronenworth, Padres Agree to 7-Year, $80M Contract Extension
The San Diego Padres' spending spree isn't over, though Jake Cronenworth's new deal isn't as exorbitant as a lot of their offseason signings.
The Athletic's Dennis Lin first reported Cronenworth agreed to a seven-year extension that will start in 2024 and run through the 2030 season.
Per ESPN's Jeff Passan, the seven-year pact is worth $80 million and is the largest contract ever given to a player in his age-29 season with fewer than four years of service time.
