Fuente tells elCaribe that the process is long. If everything continues as it goes, in the next few hours their agreement for 14 years and US $ 340 million will be made official
It is very likely that in the next few hours the agreement for 14 seasons and 340 million dollars between Dominican Fernando Tatis III and the San Diego Padres will be made official.
A source linked to the process told elCaribe that there are many possibilities that from today to tomorrow the pact will be finalized, which since last week has been informed in different ways. The last link for both parties to seal the contract is the rigorous physical examination that a player is subjected to, especially when it comes to such a large sum. Tatis III, a native of San Pedro de Macorís, is only the third player in Major League history to receive at least $ 340 million. In first place is Mike Trout, the center fielder who earned $ 426 million from the Angels for 12 seasons and second, fellow patrolman Mookie Betts, to whom the Dodgers gave $ 365 million for the same number of seasons. Tatis is the only player to agree to 14 contests on the game records.
“They are a number of exams that nobody imagines. They have done several magnetic resonances to him, they go like four or five ”, indicated the informant who requested reservations of his name since he is not authorized to speak publicly of the process. The Padres are headquartered in Peoria, Arizona. It is customary for this process to be carried out in what is considered the organization’s practice headquarters. Tatis III just turned 22 years old and is considered by many as the one called to be the “face of the game”. He has barely 143 games in his young career, but he has displayed talent, potential and charisma rarely seen in sports.
