Padres lock down Tatis Jr. with 14-year contract extension, per reports

It's a $340 million extension for the 22-year-old star shortstop.

SAN DIEGO — According to ESPN's Jeff Passan, San Diego Padres shortstop Fernando Tatis Jr. is "in agreement" with the ballclub on a massive $340 million extension. 

It's a 14-year deal for the 22-year-old, which also includes a no-trade clause. 

The $340 million deal is the third-largest in the major leagues and comes in just ahead of fellow Padre Manny Machado's $300 million deal signed two years ago.

The 14-year deal is the longest in MLB history. Giancarlo Stanton, now with the New York Yankees, signed a 13-year, $325 million deal with Miami in 2015. Bryce Harper signed a 13-year, $330 million deal with Philadelphia in 2019.

In addition to signing a mega extension, the young Padres phenom, Tatis Jr., was recently announced as the cover athlete for MLB The Show video game. 

Tatis Jr. is a career .301 hitter in his first two seasons with the Padres.
