Padres' Manny Machado says he will opt out of contract; third baseman has five years, $150M left on deal

Feb 18, 2023

San Diego Padres star third baseman Manny Machado revealed Friday that he intends to opt out of his contract once the 2023 season comes to an end.

Despite signing a 10-year deal worth $300 million with the Padres prior to the 2019 season, the 30-year-old said he has taken notice of other the big money contracts that have been given out across the MLB.

"There's a lot of money out there," Machado told reporters. "As a player about to opt out, it's pretty good to see."
